Womanizer Murderer
10 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a very interesting TV film about a Judge, James Farentino, (Jonathan Morris) who gets involved with a hooker in a hotel room and all kinds of trouble is created for Jonathan Morris who is also dating an Assistant District Attorney, Victoria Principal, (Joanne Dawson) who he is very much in love with and she loves him also. There is a trial held and Jonathan and Joanne have to provided their experience in bringing to trial a murder which happened to a prostitute. There becomes a conflict of interest in this murder trial and some very dark secrets are revealed in this court room. I should aid that Jonathan Morris is considering running as a Senator from the State of California and is very well liked and admired. This is a very good murder mystery that involves a troubled Judge. Enjoy.
