Plot Synopsis

Based on the novel by Scott Turow. Rusty Sabich, chief judge of the State Court of Appeals, is charged with the murder of his wife, a situation that comes 20 years after he was cleared in the death of his mistress. The initial report says his wife died of natural causes, but Rusty's old adversary, Tommy Molto, now acting prosecuting attorney, is looking into her death, spurred on by his fiery chief deputy, Jim Brand. Together, they set out to prove Rusty's guilt and dig deep to uncover the truth. Rusty, again, hires powerhouse defense attorney Sandy Stern who is eager to exonerate his high-profile client, like he did 20 years earlier. During the explosive trial, a secret affair from Rusty's recent past threatens to hamper his defense and fracture his relationship with his son.
