Scandal, sex, murder and the media. It has been almost 62 years since Marilyn Sheppard was murdered in her Bay Village home. The Sam Sheppard case marked a pivotal moment in the emerging medium of television and American jurisprudence. And the fascination with the case goes on.

Next year will mark the 50th anniversary of the United States Supreme Court's landmark decision in the case of Sheppard v. Maxwell that set aside the conviction for Marilyn's husband, Dr. Sam Sheppard, and set the national standard on the issue of pretrial publicity and media in the court room. Learn both the history and currency of this life-changing criminal case for both the media and the justice system.

Join former Assistant County Prosecutors A. Steven Dever and Dean Boland and Civil Rights Attorney Terry Gilbert; trial judge Ron Suster; Plain Dealer reporter Brent Larkin and former Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Bill Mason as they discuss the history of the Sheppard Case as they give insight in the trial tactics used, including their personal involvement. C. Ellen Connally will moderate the program.

You be the judge and jury: Was Dr. Sam Sheppard guilty? Was there really a "bushy-haired man?" Was an innocent man wrongfully convicted? You decide.
