Beyond a Reasonable Doubt
Beyond a Reasonable Doubt
By Nathan Mayer.

Cast: 2m., 1w. Two dynamic lawyers are locked in a clash of wills and morality. Ruth Ballard is an embittered radical, now in jail, accused of participating in a bank robbery and a subsequent killing, and she chooses to represent herself as attorney. Kenneth Hayes is the assistant district attorney assigned to prosecute her. They were classmates in law school. She says she is innocent; he warns her that the moment she admits she is a radical she will be convicted by a jury, and that the only way she can avoid a life sentence is to plea bargain. In return for telling Kenneth who the other bandits were, and testifying against them, Ruth would get a lighter sentence. She insists she had no part in the crime, and thus has nothing to tell him. Their conflicts, legal, personal and political, create a fascinating and compelling drama. One int. set.
