"When you read the Davis' story--repeated appearances in court without any resolution, aggravated by continuous verbal attacks upon their son's character and not one kind word from the court--you would not believe this could occur in America. Because my office was fighting for this family every minute of those eight years, I can tell you the account you will read is true and represents a genuine American tragedy."
