Cape Fear

He was sitting on a wall
that bounds our property.

That's not even trespassing, Sam.
Come on. What can I say?
Get a restraining order.

I filed one this morning.
The hearing's in ten days.

Good. Anything I can do.
Tom, fourteen years ago...
:17:19 this case I had a report on the victim.
-It was a rape case.
-That's right.

Rape and aggravated sexual battery.
Anyway, I had a report on this victim...
...and it came back
that she was promiscuous.

...I buried it.
-Anybody else know about this?
-No, I buried it.

I didn't show it to the client
or the prosecution.

But if you had seen
what this guy had done to this girl...

"In every criminal prosecution,
the accused shall have...

"...the Assistance of Counsel
for his defense."

I know the Sixth Amendment.
I believe in it.

That's why I left
the Public Defender's Office.

There was no way to serve the law
in that capacity.

Some folks don't have the right
to the best defense?

Of course they deserve the best defense!
But if you had seen what he did
to this girl...

-Buried the report.
-lf it was your own daughter.

-Yeah, I mean...
-Buried the report.

Jesus, Sam.
Oh, God.
But I don't see how he could know that.
He was illiterate.

I had to read everything to him:
the probable cause affidavit...

...the arrest reports, everything.
There's no way he could know that.
Hey, Dani...
:18:46's so quiet out here,
and the light's so perfect...

...why don't you get your book
and come out here and read?

I told you why.
Is it because he's like a flasher
or just a peeper?

What do you know about that? A flasher?
