All your life, is such a shame, shame, shame, All your love, is just a dream, dream, dream. Well are you happy where you're sleeping? Does he keep you safe and warm? Does he tell you when you're sorry? Featured lyrics. Tell Me When It's Over.
Hope For The Underrated Youth, A Murder Of One. Blue morning, Blue morning Wrapped in strands of fist and bone. Curiosity, Kitten, doesn't have to mean you're on your own. Your can look outside your window, He doesn't have to know. We can talk a while, baby. We can take it nice and slow. All your life is such a shame, shame, shame. All your love is just a dream, dream, dream.
Well, are you happy where you're sleepin'? Does he keep you safe and warm? Does he tell you when you're sorry? Does he tell you when you're wrong? I've been watching you for hours. It's been years since we were born. We were perfect when we started I've been wondering where we've gone. Well, I dreamt I saw you walking up a hillside in the snow Casting shadows on the winter sky as you stood there counting crows.
One for sorrow, Two for joy, Three for girls and four for boys, Five for silver, Six for gold, Seven for a secret never to be told. There's a bird that nests inside you Sleeping underneath your skin.
Lester would drug and rape her and other patients. When Julie is called to the stand the very next day Ted is stunned that Julie has completely reversed her story.
When Ted asks her if she's had any contact with Richard she asks the judge, "Isn't there a law against testifying against your spouse? Ted next introduces Jessica's diary into evidence which A Murder Of One chronicled her sexual liaisons with hundreds of Hollywood's leading men. Ted suggests many other possible suspects. One of these is film producer Gary Blondo.
Reluctant to testify about sex with year-old Jessica, Gary's lawyers insist that he cannot testify because he is gravely ill in the hospital. When Ted shows photos of Gary drinking champagne and partying in the hospital the outraged judge orders Gary to testify immediately. Still playing sick, Gary's lawyers bring him into court in a wheelchair. When Ted confronts him about sex with Jessica, Gary denies it.
As Gary is wheeled out of the courtroom, Ted says to Chris, "If there's ever a nuclear holocauststand next to Gary Blondo. He's a survivor. Against Ted's advice Neil takes the stand to profess his innocence. But on cross-examination he admits he was too high that night to even know if he did or didn't kill Jessica. The jury convicts Neil of Jessica's murder. The prosecutor Miriam Grasso insists that Neil's bail be revoked and that he not be shown any celebrity treatment and be put into the prison's general population.
Although Ted vows to appeal, the judge gives a lengthy speech on her disgust with Neil for his brutal crime and how in the face of "overwhelming evidence" he's shown no remorse. Neil is taken away in chains crying. The next day Neil's fears are realized as his becomes the celebrity target in a hardened prison. Knowing Neil can't survive in prison any longer, Ted makes one last desperate plea to Richard and Julie to come clean with what really happened that night. Richard agrees to testify and authenticate the sought A Murder Of One videotape showing Richard's drug lord friend Roberto Portalegre murdering Jessica.
It is also revealed that Portalegre sent the assassin to kill Dave Blalock when the video tape exposing Richard's alibi surfaced. He also had Holly Gerges, who was an obsessed fan of Neil's, killed whilst in police custody and was behind the kidnapping of Ted's daughter, Elizabeth. Neil is vindicated and Portalegre is subsequently arrested for the murder of Jessica Costello.
Portalegre offers to pay Ted 20 million dollars to defend him, considering lawyers willing to do anything for money. Ted declines his offer and later leaves his law practice in the hopes of reconciling with his wife. At the celebration party, Chris confides in Ted that he was considering paying off an official in the A Murder Of One Attorney's Office who offered to have Neil's conviction overturned. Ted, who previously stated his opposition to the offer, surprises Chris by pulling out a suitcase full of money which was presumably intended to pay off the same official.
Portalegre is convicted of the murder and sentenced to death. Lester is convicted of perjury and obstruction of justice and sentenced to ten years in prison. Richard dies nine days after taking the witness stand. Assistant District Attorney Jimmy Wyler is outraged when he is denied his promotion to prosecute major crimes. Garfield tells Jimmy that when he's governor they won't have to work together anymore.
Jimmy responds, "You're elected governor and I'll kiss your ass in Macy's window. The next morning Jimmy sees on the news that the current governor, Tom Van Allan, who was running for reelection was assassinated along with one of his mistresses in a beach house.
At the office Jimmy learns that the killer was caught fleeing the scene. Sharon Rooney, one of Van Allan's many mistresses was a woman scorned who used her roommate's pistol to kill the two.
With overwhelming evidence the police and district attorney have no doubt she's guilty. Jimmy visits Sharon in her holding cell. She is exactly the emotional wreck the police described. Angry about his denied promotion, Jimmy offers to switch sides and defend Sharon pro bono. She accepts, and confesses to Jimmy that she is indeed guilty as charged.
Jimmy next visits Hoffman and Associates. Without Hoffman, the associates are barely able to keep the firm up and running. Jimmy asks for their help on the A Murder Of One assuring them that after he wins the trial of the century the business will boom.
Wyler and Associates is born. Jimmy assigns Justine Appleton as second chair because she is a woman approximately the same age as Sharon.
The prosecuting assistant district attorney Miriam Grasso lays out the strongest case possible. Sharon left her husband to become Van Allan's mistress. When Sharon became pregnant Van Allan forced her to have an abortion. After the abortion Sharon became mentally unstable and Van Allan ended the affair. Forensic evidence shows Sharon at the crime scene and she was caught fleeing the crime scene.
The recovered gun ballistically matches the bullets used to commit the crime and was registered to her roommate. Jimmy quickly loses friends and makes enemies as he attempts to discredit his former friends in the police department. Miriam is angry that he overheard discussions related to the case before he quit the district attorney's office.
During the trial, Jimmy uses information from his past as a DA to discredit his former co-workers; for example, Detective Biggio sent an innocent man to prison where he was killed before his release, and he uses a forensic examiner's attention deficit disorder ADD to try to convince the jury that he may have been confused at the crime scene. Jimmy begins to suspect the assassination is bigger than simply an angry lone nut.
His office is bugged, a billionaire Malcolm Dietrich attempts to buy him off, and key witnesses are turning up dead. Jimmy requests an immediate mistrial. The judge denies a mistrial and rules that the jury may consider Sharon's outburst and that she will have waived her Fifth Amendment right and can be subjected to cross-examination by the prosecution if she has any more such outburst in the courtroom.
Jimmy's big break comes when Van Allan's campaign manager Larry White tells Jimmy that he was actually a spy for Dietrich hired to get Garfield elected. Larry witnessed massive corruption, scandal, and even murder. The Governor had made many powerful enemies like Dietrich with the means, motive, and opportunity to have him assassinated.
Larry is emotionally remorseful for his crimes and requests no money for his testimony. Given the short life span of past witnesses, Jimmy places him in secret protective custody. After exhaustive measures to keep Larry safe, he finally makes it to the witness stand. He lays out a detailed saga of Van Allan and Garfield's massive corruption and crimes where literally billions of dollars changed hands. The enormity of the election and the assassination are finally realized.
As Larry testifies he is visibly ill and loosens his tie drinking water before finally dropping dead on the courtroom floor. Miriam stands over his dead body and with a smile requests that his testimony be excluded, "Since it doesn't appear as though I'll have an opportunity to cross-examine him. The courtroom holds its breath as Sharon tells her heartbreaking story of being a young woman in love who grew distant from her husband because of his long hours as a doctor.
Her affair with the Governor was a fairy tale as Van Allan treated her opulently. Upon telling him of her pregnancy he offered to leave his wife and marry her after the election, but only if she aborted their child.
Sharon describes the abortion in graphic detail and how it sickened her to end the life of her first child. Of course Van Allan did not keep his promise and instead dumped her immediately. She confesses to A Murder Of One that she did not kill the Governor and when she called herself a murderer she was referring to her child.
She accepts the possible eventuality of a murder conviction and death sentence as an opportunity to be with her baby. On cross-examination Miriam shows how Sharon's misery only proves her motive for the assassination. To this Sharon has no answer. The jury is clearly affected by Sharon's testimony as they acquit her despite the overwhelming physical evidence.
Both the defense and prosecution are shocked by the verdict as well as the angry and vocal media. That night Jimmy and the firm throw a victory party at a bar and grill.
Still emotionally unstable, Sharon slits her wrists in the restroom, killing herself. Jimmy is contacted from jail by Mafia hit man Carmine D'Nardis. He provides details confirming that he assassinated the governor and wants Jimmy to broker a deal with the police to tell them everything in exchange for witness protection. But he doubts he will live long enough to make the deal. Jimmy presents the case to Detective Biggio and asks him to help bring the true murderer of Governor Van Allan to justice.
Through an intermediary, Jimmy is offered millions for giving up Carmine's location. Through a series of sting operations and wire tapping with police they are able to uncover the conspiracy all the way up to Dietrich and Garfield. Jimmy and Miriam go together to confront now Governor Garfield in his office. Miriam is enraged that he used her in his cover up.
Garfield tearfully and cowardly begs forgiveness, insisting they were going to do it anyway and there was nothing he could do to stop them. Unsympathetic, Miriam reminds him that he deliberately planned the wrongful prosecution of a mentally traumatized innocent who is now dead.
Miriam grants Garfield full immunity in exchange for his testifying against Dietrich. Jimmy goes to Dietrich's office for a final confrontation and as he walks out, Detective Biggio comes into the office to place Dietrich under arrest. Garfield was later seen resigning from being Governor-elect on TV. Instead of admitting wrongdoings, he blames Dietrich and says he does not deserve to be the governor because his campaign was associated and aided by Dietrich.
