Leo Frank Trial Day 12

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

On the twelfth day the Leo Frank trial, Herbert Schiff, Frank’s personal assistant, said he worked most Saturdays and had never seen any women in Frank’s office except his wife. He added that he had never seen C.B. Dalton either. He firmly believed he would have seen more if the story Jim Conley told were true. Schiff then identified a financial expenditure sheet on which Frank had been working the day of the murder, asserting it would take two-three hours to complete, leaving no time for the murder and movement of the body as described by Conley. He then testified Conley had been extremely nervous the Monday following the murder, and had said he would “give a million dollars if he had a white man’s skin.”
