    19. KU KLUX KLAN: a secret organization that began in 1865 in the southern
    20. states of the US and has a long history of violent attacs
    21. against black people and their supporters.
    22. Story:
    23. At the beginning of the story, Tonya Hailey, a ten year old black girl, is raped
    24. by Billy Ray Cobb and his friend Pete Willard on the way home. They injure
    25. her badly and they also want to hang her but the bough brakes and so they
    26. throw her over a bridge into a dried up river-bed.
    27. The girl is found by a member of her family who tells her mother what had
    28. happened. Carl Lee Hailey and his wife lay an information against the two
    29. white men and later they are arrested by sheriff Walls.
    30. In the meantime, Carl Lee Hailey makes inquiries of Jake Brigance about
    31. consequences of murdering a person. Jake tells him, that if the same had
    32. have happened to his daughter, he would kill the raper. Carl Lee also askes
    33. Jake if he would defend him in case of emergency. As he affirms, Carl Lee
    34. decides to buy himself a gun and to kill the rapers of his daughter.
    35. When Sgt Looney takes Billy Ray Cobb and Pete Willard to the court for their
    36. hearing, Carl Lee jumps out and shoots them down. A confused bullet hits
    37. Looney in his right knee. The two rapers are dead at the moment and Carl Lee
    38. is arrested by sheriff Walls.
    39. In prison Carl Lee begs Jake Brigance to take his defense and he promises.
    40. But it is a very difficult intention because the inhabitants of Clanton are mostly
    41. white and also the members of the jury will be white. Jake aspires to conduct
    42. the trial in another federal state, where more black inhabitants will be in the
    43. jury and maybe judge fairer. But this petition is turned down by judge Noose.
    44. So Jake Brigance and his assistants Ellen Roark, a brilliant law student, and
    45. Harry Rex Vonner, a friend of Jake, search for irksome material to expose the
    46. prosecutors´ witnesses. Rufus Buckley and his helpers do the same on the
    47. other side. For example both psychatrists, one of each side get blamed by
    48. Rufus an Jake. During the investigations Jake and his colleges are attacked
    49. several times by members of the KU KLUX KLAN. They burn down Jake´s
    50. house, attack the husband of his secretary and at last Ellen.
    51. In the opinion of the reverend of Clanton and other members of the church a
    52. black lawyer should defend Carl Lee. They think that there is not the least
    53. chance to get him free if he is defended by a white lawyer.
    54. At the final trail the prosecutor demands death penalty for Carl Lee and tries to
    55. convince the jury of his guilt. In his pleading Jake Brigance begs the witnesses
    56. to close their eyes and tells again the whole story of what had happened to
    57. little Tonya. He doesn´t leave out anything, he describes the whole act of
    58. violence.
    59. At the end, he demands the witnesses to imagine that all this had happened to
    60. a WHITE girl.
    61. The jury is very affected of this pleading and they find Carl Lee for not guilty.
