The People’s Court in Munich clears Ludendorff of high treason charges. Ernst Röhm, Head of the “Sturmabteilung” (SA), is sentenced to three months in prison and is fined 100 marks. Adolf Hitler himself is sentenced to five years Festungshaft and is fined 200 marks. All those charged are given credit by the court for being led by “purely patriotic spirit and the most noble, selfless intention”. Many contemporaries think that the verdict and its reasoning are tantamount to an acquittal.
