  • Description

    Alleged mass murderer Juan Corona pleaded not guilty at Yuba City Court yesterday (June 2) to slaying ten of the 24 migrant labourers whose bodies were discovered in an orchard last month. Press and public were barred from the courtroom during the brief hearing at the request of Corona's attorney. The accused, a 37-year-old Mexican who speaks little English and needed an interpreter at the hearing, was then returned to his cell in the nearby Marysville Jail. This film, showing the scene at the courthouse, has a voice-on-film commentary for use.

    For translation purposes a transcript of the commentary is included on this page.
