Sensational headlines were made in 1982 when a 13-year-old runaway from Georgia was killed. The victim had been injected with Drano, raped repeatedly, shot in the back, and ultimately pushed over the rim of Little River Canyon. This is the true story of the lawyer forced to represent the perpetrator of the heinous crimes, written by the lawyer himself.With theft, burglary, armed robbery, embezzlement, kidnapping, rape, two murders, the Neelley crime spree is one of the most gruesome in history. Robert B. French Jr. was assigned to represent Judith Ann Neelley, who was trying to exonerate her husband and take the blame herself. French weaves his own memories into this factual accounting of the investigation, trial, surrounding political intrigue, and crimes that will haunt your nightmares.
