The 22-year-old Negro was found guilty of murder in 14th Judicial District Court here on April 17, 1961, but in June 1%3, the U. S. Supreme Court overthrew the verdict and ordered a new trial. The nation's highest court said the local trial turned into "kangaroo court, proceedings." The court decision r e a d in part, "The due process of law in the case required a trial by a jury drawn from a community of people who have not seen and heard Rhleau's tole- 1 vised interview." Soon after his capture, Rideau appeared on a local television station with Sheriff Henry A. Reid and allegedly confessed to the crime. In January of this year, Disl. Ally.
