Loeb for Sex
And the case closes, and we are just as much in the dark as ever as
to what these four crimes (of Loeb) were, because the doctors concluded
that legally and forensically it was inadvisable to question him about
it. And then, I ask you, when Darrow talks about tricks, who are the tricksters
in this case.
What strange hold did this man Leopold have upon Loeb? Why did he submit
himself to the unnatural practices of Leopold? I will tell you, Your Honor,
and I think I will demonstrate it beyond a peradventure of a doubt that
these four episodes, that these four crimes were known to Leopold, and
he blackmailed Loeb, he threatened Loeb with exposure if he did not submit
to him, and Loeb had to go along with Leopold. And Leopold was willing
to go along with Loeb because he could use his body for vile and unnatural
practices. And I will prove that, and I will prove that by the testimony
of the defense beyond a reasonable doubt.
