“Dwayne Carter murdered that man. It’s plain and simple.” Rafael said angrily.
“That man stopped his daughter’s rapist and murderer!” Liv countered. “Something we couldn’t do!”
Rafael was silent for a moment. “I don’t have a choice. The DA wants me to prosecute this case.”
“What about extreme emotional distress? Doesn’t that count for anything? Plead him out.” Liv asked.
“Why are you coming down so hard on this guy?” Sonny asked. He had been incredibly upset about this case.
“The law is the law, why should he get a pass on taking another man’s life?” Rafael answered.
Samantha Carter, a fourteen year old girl, had been sexually assaulted and killed by her tennis coach. Her father, Dwayne Carter, had been devastated. Sonny had spent most of his time with her father during the investigation.
You had performed the autopsy and collected as much evidence as possible. Luckily there had been some partial prints on Samantha’s belt buckle, which had led us to her tennis coach. His prints were on the files for the Education Department, since it is a requirement for certification or employment in schools. This had been enough evidence for a warrant to obtain a sample of David Granger’s DNA.
