When a mob arsonist is arrested, he wants to make a deal for a lighter sentence. He tells the police that the vicious rape and assault of Cookie Costello 30 years before was not committed by the man who confessed to the crime, Sal Munoz, but by a mob enforcer by the name of Mike Farina. The claim is credible and the Costello case is re-opened. They eventually conclude that Farina had an alibi for the time Costello was assaulted but that doesn't stop an aggressive lawyer, Teri Marks, from seeking a new trial for Munoz. When her appeal is granted, she also manages to have Munoz's confession thrown out leaving ADA McCoy to prosecute a 30 year-old case with witnesses, those who are alive at any rate, with at best faded memories.- Written by garykmcd
