    • Catherine: Let me lay our case that we have against you and your accomplice. Due to the granting of your new trial, the lab reopened your case. We found the murder weapon. A claw hammer, and we found your print on the base handle of that hammer, and we found your accomplice's print in blood on the body of that handle. We've identified your accomplice as Sabrina Owen, formerly Sabrina Latay, your girlfriend at the time of the murder. And she's made a full statement implicating you as the killer of Thomas Harrit.
      Jeremy: You're frickin' lying to me.
      Catherine: These are copies of all pertinent documents as well as a transcript of Ms. Owen's sworn confession.
      Jeremy (reading from the confession): 'I saw the old man on the floor, Jeremy was standing over him, holding a hammer, he was already dead.' I can't believe that she would do this to me.
      Catherine: Yeah, you protected her for 18 years and she sold you out in five minutes.
      Jeremy: I kept my mouth shut so my kid would have a mother. Everything I've done, I did for them.
      Catherine: Why did you ask for a new trial? You had to have known that we might find out about Sabrina.
      Jeremy: No, I didn't, not after all this time.
      Catherine: Then why?
      Jeremy: Because I'm entitled to a fair trial!
      Catherine: But you're still guilty. ... There's more than that, I mean, you've been in here for 18 years, she's been out there with your kid, living a normal life. I think you just got tired of having to pay for the crime all by yourself.
      Jeremy: All I think about in here is that kid who has no idea I even exist. Sabrina never visited me once, she never wrote, she never sent a photo of my... girl or boy, I don't even-- I don't even know a name!
      Catherine: Your son's name is Tyler.
      Jeremy: Did Sabrina cut a deal?
      Catherine: No deal. She's been charged, she'll stand trial.
      Jeremy: So she'll testify against me?
      Catherine: That's up to the DA.
      Jeremy: Well, you tell the DA to make sure that happens.
      Catherine: ... You're hoping that your son will be there.
      Jeremy: It might be the only chance in my life that I have to see him. That's not right.
      Catherine: Maybe not. ... But, you had a choice, Thomas Harrit didn't. I'm saving my sympathy for him.
