Subtitle A Criminal Defense Lawyer's Story
Author "Smith, Abbe"
Publisher Palgrave Macmillan
Date 2009
Month September
Summary "First-person account by Abbe Smith about her handling of the case of Patsy Kelly Jarrett for three decades. Smith believes that Jarrett was wrongly convicted of aiding in the 1973 murder of a gas station attendent in New York, and she first tried to overturn her conviction, and then tried to get an executive pardon or commutation. Although Smith's efforts were unsuccessful, Jarrett was paroled in 2005 after almost 29 years of imprisonment. The book is a testiment to the rarely recognized efforts put forth by defense lawyers on behalf of a client that they passionately believe to be innocent."
