The Lazy Lawyer

Case Number 12


Most of the time, Defense Attorney Jerry Baker asked MacFarland to find the evidence he needs to get one of his usually guilty clients a lesser sentence or even off the hook. Most of the time, MacFarland does so because he trusts Baker’s judgment about people. But this time, it’s different. This time it’s Jerry Baker who is accused of murder.

Jerry Baker is the prime suspect in the murder of his co-counsel. The evidence looks bad: a gun that had been in Baker’s desk was the murder weapon, Baker’s prints are on the gun, and there is evidence that Baker and his co-counsel didn’t see eye-to-eye on how to advance their case.

MacFarland can’t believe his friend is guilty. But to prove Baker’s innocence, MacFarland will have to find out who really killed the Lazy Lawyer.
