Poetry. In this, the second of his three-book series TRIAL & ERROR: THE EDUCATION OF A FREEDOM LAWYER, Art Campbell becomes a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney in Washington, D.C. He tries dozens of cases with only ten minutes preparation, confronts "testilying" witnesses, and argues constitutional issues on behalf of the government. His prosecutorial career culminates with his accidental conviction of an innocent man. When he is told by his superior to let the verdict stand, he disobeys. With vivid description and uncommon candor Campbell reveals prosecutorial strategies, flaws in our justice system, and his own doubts whether, as a prosecutor, he can still be a freedom lawyer.
