Her boss, District Attorney Raymond Horgan, assigns his other Associate DA, Tommy Molto, to investigate the murder of Polhemus. This puts Molto in an uncomfortable position as he was having an affair with Polhemus. Shortly thereafter, Horgan loses his reelection bid to remain DA. The new DA, Nico Della Guardia, discovers the affair between Polhemus and Molto. He immediately charges Molto with the murder of Polhemus. Molto must fight to clear his name, but he finds that he has few people willing to believe him innocent of the crime. His one ally is his former opponent in the courtroom, Sandy Stern. She works hard to build Molto’s defense and get him acquitted of the murder.
