The trial was set for January 2, 1935 and it was expected to be the trial of the century (Petersen). When defense attorneys called Hauptmann to the witness stand, he professed total innocence, claimed that police had subjected him to beatings, and stated that he had been forced to produce handwriting samples that matched the ransom notes (Lindbergh Baby Kidnapping). After more than five weeks of testimony and 11 hours of deliberation, the jury returned a guilty verdict on Feb. 13, 1935, and Hauptmann was sentenced to death (Lindbergh Baby Kidnapping). On June 20, 1935 Hauptmann’s defense team appealed his conviction to New Jersey’s highest tribunal and on October 9, 1935 that appeal was denied (Busch). On Oct. 15, 1935, the defense team files second appeal and on Dec. 9, 1935 it was denied by the U.S. Supreme Court (Busch).Hauptmann, denying until the end any involvement in the crime, was executed by electric
In order to avoid the death penalty, the defense tried to have Chase found guilty of second degree murder, which would result in a life sentence. Their case hinged on Chase's history of mental illness and the lack of planning in his crimes, evidence that they were not premeditated. On May 8 the jury found Chase guilty of six counts of first degree murder. The defense asked for a clemency hearing, in which a judge determined that Chase was not legally insane; Chase was sentenced to die in the gas chamber. Waiting to die, Chase became a feared presence in prison; the other inmates (including several gang members), aware of the graphic and bizarre nature of his crimes, feared him, and according to prison officials, they often tried to convince Chase to commit suicide, too fearful to get close enough to him to kill him themselves.
