Money can't buy everything
12 October 2016 | by (N Syracuse NY) – See all my reviews

A very young Richard Jordan is hot-rodding with a couple of friends when a group of hunters step out onto an otherwise deserted road. Three people are killed and Jordan goes on trial. His father, (Harold J. Stone), is a highly successful businessman who has always done whatever is necessary to ensure his won success. He hires the Prestons to defend his son, then offers to back the DA in a run for Congress and finally bribes a juror.

Lawrence has to figure out what to do. The first trial was a hung jury due to the bribed juror. if he reports what he knows, the second trial would be conducted in a hyper-charged atmosphere in which the jury would resent the defendant's status as a rich kid whose father tries to buy his freedom. If he doesn't report it, he could be up for discipline before the bar. Kenneth urges his father to look out for himself but Lawrence feels his ultimate responsibility is to his client.

Meanwhile Jordan is getting sick of being a rich kid and having his father pull all the strings in his life. Another good "What would you do" episode that leaves you thinking, which is what this series is famous for.
