    • QUOTES (1)

      • Dawson: Your misinformed. I was not Jerry Foster's attorney of record. He was the only legal adviser appointed by the court to protect his own interest.
        Mark: He defended himself?
        Dawson: Mmm.
        Mark: Why?
        Dawson: You might say because no one else would. Every lawyer he consulted felt the same as you do. The only possible plea was voluntary manslaughter.
        Mark: Well, how did you feel, sir?
        Dawson: Feelings have no place in a court of law, young man. Haven't you been taught that yet?
        Mark: Yes, sir, and I've also been taught to recognize an unresponsive answer.
        Dawson: Objection noted. When I first met Jerry, I felt the same as everyone else, that he was a liar and murderer. But eventually his immense belief in his own innocence began to persuade me.
        Mark: In spite of the evidence against him?
        Dawson: In spite of everything. If you could talk to Jerry himself, you'llunderstand what I mean. He's at a conservation camp in Susanville. I could arrange for you to see him.
        Mark: Susanville, minimum security?
        Dawson: Jerry's a model prisoner. Not the usual picture of a murderer.
