Mark A. Weitz. The Sleepy Lagoon murder case : race discrimination and Mexican-American rights. University Press of Kansas, c2010.

KF224.S49W45 2010

 

This book chronicles the Sleepy Lagoon case, the largest mass murder trial in California history, from the streets of Los Angeles’ Mexican-American neighborhoods to the criminal courts, through the appeals process, and to the ultimate release of the convicted.  By demonstrating how an environment of fear and hostility fostered a breakdown in the legal protections that should have been afforded to the defendants, it illuminates a vital episode in the evolution of defendants’ rights, including the right to counsel and the right to a fair and impartial trial.
