The jailhouse lawyer  Cover Image Book Book

The jailhouse lawyer / James Patterson and Nancy Allen.

Patterson, James, 1947- (author.). Allen, Nancy (Lawyer), (author.). Patterson, James, 1947- Power of attorney. (Added Author).

Summary:

A young lawyer takes on the judge who is destroying her hometown--and ends up in jail herself. In picture-perfect Erva, Alabama, the most serious crimes are misdemeanors. Speeding tickets. Shoplifting. Contempt of court. Then why is the jail so crowded? And why are so few prisoners released? There's only one place to learn the truth behind these incriminating secrets. Sometimes the best education a lawyer can get is a short stretch of hard time.
