Arnold Buhler (Joseph Cotton) successfully defends Max Dent (Nick Adams), on trial for murder. After the trial, Buhler's last case before retiring, Dent tells Buhler that he is actually guilty, because he can't be tried twice for the same crime. Is he telling the truth, or just acting out due to his pathological hatred for lawyers and the justice system? Buhler hires his friend Stu Bailey to find out, then takes matters into his own hands, hounding Dent endlessly. What will Dent do? Written by
