The Chicago Homicide Project is absolutely huge! Maneuvering through the large number of cases was difficult but finding a question to ask of it is not. Using the database, I wanted to find out the number and kind of crimes that successfully received ‘Not Guilty by reasons of Insanity’ verdicts in the 1920’s. After lots of deleting of rows, I narrowed the database down to only eight people, two women and six men. The most important thing that I wanted to find out which race – white, black etc. – was the one that got away with their crimes with the most. I figured before I even started it was going to white men who had the most and I wasn’t disappointed; out of the the eight successful ‘Not Guilty by reason of insanity’ pleas, four of them were white males. This is interesting to me as the case I have researched for over a month, Leopold and Loeb, had the original plea of ‘Not Guilty by reason of insanity’ before Clarence Darrow changed it to Guilty to avoid the Death Penalty that Prosecutor Crowe wanted.
