Leo Frank Trial Day 22, Final Arguments Began

To view an image of Leo Frank at his trial, see the DIgital Library of Georgia.

At the Fulton County courthouse, the trial of Leo Frank entered its twenty-second day. Final arguments began this day, with aides to the two main attorneys (Hugh Dorsey for the prosecution and Luther Rosser for the defense) speaking first. The prosecution portrayed Frank as a Jekyll-and-Hyde character who could mask his deviant tendencies from his family and friends. The defense contended that Jim Conley was the murderer and concocted his story to save his own neck.
