Directed Verdict (Failed Justice #1)

Directed Verdict (Failed Justice #1)

 

In a run-of-the-mill rape case, Judge Walter Kolkolski takes the law into his own hands…

A directed verdict allows a judge to override a jury’s verdict, based on what the judge believes to be lack of credible evidence. It is a legal abomination.

When university student Anthony Ricardo is accused of raping a coed, Victoria Cummings, the case goes to trial before Judge Walter Kolkolski. When the trial is over, the court attendant hands over the jury’s guilty verdict. Kolkolski tears it up and dismisses the jury. He pronounces Anthony not guilty.

Judge Kolkolski has no problem using one of the dirtiest legal tricks in the book to further his own agenda—a directed verdict.

Victoria’s father, a relocated Russian mafia gangster named Alexey Cummings, seeks vengeance after Anthony flees to Miami Beach. It’s here where he encounters a new paramour—the judge’s ex-wife.

Under a mandated leave of absence, Kolkolski is hot on Anthony’s heels as he heads down to Florida, hoping to reconcile with his ex. But a whirlwind of events lands both back in New Jersey, where Kolkolski stands accused of Anthony’s murder.

In a world of corrupt justice and personal agendas, can Judge Kolkolski prove his innocence?
