"Dickie" Loeb and Nathan ("Babe") Leopold went to prison together. Leopold would say, years later, that Loeb entered prison without any remorse whatsoever. The only thing he was sorry for was the outcome: He got caught.
But some would argue Justice ultimately had her way with Richard Loeb.

Despite the facts, Day was acquitted at his murder trial. Richard Loeb was dead, and his killer was "not guilty."
But ... what did the future hold for Nathan Leopold?
