Illinois State Penitentiary, Joliet [between 1880 and 1901]

Judge Caverly sentenced each defendant for the murder of Bobby Franks to ?be confined in the penitentiary at Joliet for the term of your natural life,? and for the kidnapping he sentenced each defendant to ?be confined in the penitentiary at Joliet for the term of ninety-nine years.? Just a few hours after they were sentenced, Leopold and Loeb were driven under heavy police security to Joliet prison located about forty miles from Chicago.
