Prosecutor John D. Fredericks

"Captain" Fredericks prosecuted Clarence Darrow during his first bribery trial. When one of the most important prosecution witnesses refused to look at Darrow or his attorney Earl Rogers, Rogers whispered to Darrow "Make him look you in the eye." Fredericks heard Rogers and startled the courtroom when he said "We maintain that Mr. Darrow is attempting to use hypnotism on this witness."
