Summary, etc.:
"Paul Robinson here presents a series of unusual episodes that not only challenged the law, but that defy a facile or knee-jerk verdict. Narrating the facts in compelling but detached detail, Robinson invites readers to sentence the transgressor (or not) before revealing the final outcome of the case." "The cases described in Would You Convict? engage, shock, even repel. Without a doubt, they will challenge you and your belief system. And the way in which juries and judges have resolved them will almost certainly surprise you."--Jacket.
Subject: Criminal law > United States.
Trials > United States.
