The Innocent Man: Murder And Injustice In A Small Town - nouveau livre

ISBN: 9780385517232

ID: 978038551723

John Grisham’s first work of nonfiction, an exploration of small town justice gone terribly awry, is his most extraordinary legal thriller yet.In the major league draft of 1971, the first player chosen from the State of Oklahoma was Ron Williamson. When he signed with the Oakland A’s, he said goodbye to his hometown of Ada and left to pursue his dreams of big league glory.Six years later he was back, his dreams broken by a bad arm and bad habits—drinking, drugs, and women. He began to show signs of mental illness. Unable to keep a job, he moved in with his mother and slept twenty hours a day on her sofa.In 1982, a 21-year-old cocktail waitress in Ada named Debra Sue Carter was raped and murdered, and for five years the police could not solve the crime. For reasons that were never clear, they suspected Ron Williamson and his friend Dennis Fritz. The two were finally arrested in 1987 and charged with capital murder.With no physical evidence, the prosecution’s case was built on junk science and the testimony of jailhouse snitches and convicts. Dennis Fritz was found guilty and given a life sentence. Ron Williamson was sent to death row.If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you.

[EAN: 9780385517232], Gebraucht, guter Zustand, [PU: Doubleday], Law|General, Law|Legal History, Law, Biography & Autobiography|General, Social Science|Penology, In 1971, Ron Williamson left his hometown of Ada and signed with the Oakland A's to pursue his dream of becoming a star baseball player. But six years later, he was back on his mother's couch, sleeping twenty hours a day, drinking, and sinking deeper and deeper into depression. Then, in 1982, a young waitress was raped and murdered in Ada, and after a five-year investigation, police arrested Williamson and his friend Dennis Fritz. Though there was no physical evidence, Fritz was sentenced to life in prison, and Williamson was given the death penalty. 'The Innocent Man,' John Grisham's first work of non-fiction, is a sobering look at our sometimes disturbingly unjust legal system.

Détails sur le livre
The Innocent Man: Murder and Injustice in a Small Town

A successful school and college baseball player, Ronald Williamson seemed to have a world of opportunity at his feet. But, after injury put paid to his sporting career, he slowly began to show signs of mental illness, and drifted into a life of petty crime and misdemeanour. When in 1982 a girl was found raped and murdered, Williamson found himself accused of her murder. What followed was one of the most appalling cases of a miscarriage of justice America has ever seen. John Grisham has been consumed by the Williamson story, researching every detail of the nerve jangling drama of Williamson's trial and deathwatch. A court room drama and a race against time, John Grisham's first work of non-fiction is as compelling as any of his novels.
