Storyline

The young and ambitious district attorney Peter Hudson is convinced that the defendant Andrew Barnes in his current case is guilty, and that winning the case could help him much on his way to become vice-governour of Philadelphia. So he doesn't think twice about influencing witnesses. Only five years later - now head of the Department of Public Prosecution - when he receives a pledge for retrial, he gets doubts and starts investigating again... even risking his career.

I made a mistake!

When I saw this movie in the shelf of a video-shop-rent, and saw that Tim Matheson Was in it, I thought to myself "this one could be a good option, besides Matheson is a actor that always seems to choose good stories to make !" I made a mistake, fellows! Trial and Error is a lame and very stupid trial drama with no originality, no twists and turns and even Matheson seems ashamed to be in this misfire! Watch out!
