Perry defends a rookie cop against a mound of evidence
Jimmy Anderson is a rookie cop that just happens to be the cousin of Lt Andy Anderson. Jimmy will be the partner of veteran officer Otto Norden. During the first night on patrol Otto and Jimmy cannot see the night watchman at a plastic company. When they hear a strange noise the two officers enter the property. The next scene we have Lt Tragg telling Lt Anderson that the night watchman had been drugged and Otto has been killed. When Lt Anderson asks about his cousin, Tragg tells him that he was seen running from the scene.
Inside the business a safe had been blasted open with a large amount of nitro. Even though most of the company's books were destroyed about $60,000 was in a strong box and stolen. And it just so happens some of the money will be found in Officer Jimmy Anderson's apartment. Not only that, a few nights later the night watchman was killed and again Jimmy Anderson is involved.
Lt Anderson ask Perry to defend his cousin for murder of the night watchman. However this seemed like a difficult task. There is mounds of evidence against the rookie cop- so much that Perry is unable to produce a defense during the preliminary hearing. Thus having the judge bound Jimmy Anderson over for a jury trial.
With a little trickery, Perry is able to understand why the large amount of nitro was used on the safe. And with that information Jimmy Anderson will be saved from facing a trial by his peers.
A very good script that was interesting the entire 52 minutes. Good Watch!
