About Caryl Chessman:
Caryl Whittier Chessman was a convicted robber, kidnapper and rapist who was sentenced to death for a series of crimes committed in January 1948 in the Greater Los Angeles Area. The last non-military prisoner to be executed in the United States for a crime other than murder, Chessman was convicted under a loosely-interpreted "Little Lindbergh law"—later repealed, but not retroactively—that defined kidnapping as a capital offense under certain circumstances. His case attracted worldwide attention, and helped propel the movement to abolish capital punishment in California.
How, possibly, could the police have made the 'mistake' of charging the wrong man with the notorious Red Light Bandit crimes? That also is something that is fully revealed in the Pandora's Box of facts I have prepared.Caryl Chessman
