Dick writes a number of appeals arguing that he and Perry have not had a fair trial, one of which catches the eye of Everett Steerman, the Chairman of the Legal Aid Committee at the Kansas Bar Association. As a result, the Bar Association conducts a series of hearings, which are essentially intended to protect the reputation of the Kansas Courts rather than to rehash the murder case. The investigating attorney, Russell Shultz, finds little evidence supporting Dick’s claims of an unfair trial, and the Judge issues a new date of execution, October 25, 1962. This date, in the end, passes by harmlessly, but Andrews is hanged a month later.
