He was sentenced to death and a colleague, Warren Billings, to life imprisonment. Their case became a cause celebre among liberals, labor activists and defenders of civil liberties, among them Felix Frankfurter and Clarence Darrow. After 22 years of petitioning and publicity, they were released in 1939.
