The Later Scottsboro Boys Trials  (1933 - 1937)

Judge William Callahan
 

After Judge Horton set aside Haywood Patterson's death sentence and guilty verdict in June, 1933, prosecutors applied pressure to have the Scottsboro cases transferred to another judge.  Their efforts were successful, and the next round of trials began in late 1933 in the Decatur courtroom of Judge William Callahan.
