Summary
Close friends Judd Steiner and Artie Strauss kill a boy on his way home from school in order to commit the "perfect crime". Strauss tries to cover it up, but they are caught when police find a key piece of evidence <U+2014> Steiner's glasses, which he inadvertently left at the scene of the crime. Famed attorney Jonathan Wilk takes their case, saving them from hanging by making an impassioned closing argument against capital punishment. Inspired by the 1924 Leopold/Loeb murder case
