More Accusations in Leo Frank Case

Lucille Frank renewed her charges that prosecutor Hugh Dorsey was using third degree questioning tactics to gain false evidence against her husband in the murder of Mary Phagan. Mrs. Frank said their cook, Minola McKnight, had been arrested illegally because she was not a suspect in any crime. The Atlanta Journal also reported that no indictment would be sought against Jim Conley until Frank’s trial was over. If Frank was found guilty, then Conley might escape prosecution [he eventually received a one-year sentence]; if Frank were acquitted, then first degree murder charges would be filed against Conley. Investigators on the case had discovered several cases of violence in Conley’s background, including shooting at his wife and threatening a former employer with a gun. Leo Frank Case
