McCarthy Mock Trial Set for Thursday Night

Posted in

The Sheridan County Museum will be putting on a mock trial of former U.S. Senator Joe McCarthy of Wisconsin this Thursday night at Sheridan College. Museum Interim Director Sarah Ligocki explains how the mock trial will relate to Wyoming.

Ligocki tells us a little bit about the cast of the production.

A recent book by Cheyenne Author Rodger McDaniel titled "Dying for Joe McCarthy's Sins: The Suicide of Wyoming Senator Lester Hunt," chronicles McCarthy's role in Hunt's death. Ligocki said that McDaniel will be on hand to sign copies of the book that will be available for purchase. Ligocki said the event is free, but donations will be welcome at the door for the benefit of the Museum. The Joe McCarthy mock trial will take place at 7 pm Thursday in the C-TEL Presentation Hall at Sheridan College.
