In conclusion, this novel was about an unfortunate conviction of Ron Williamson and Dennis Fritz and the abuse of power in Ada.

I have learned that sometimes it is better to lawyer up (aka shut up) to avoid a lot of headaches even if you didn’t commit the crime. The novel is rather on the depressing side but the legal outcome can be satisfying.

A good chunk of the people in jail right now are being punished for a crime that they did not commit.
