They pay for it. | They pay for everything.

This is your dream, Emily.

You'll be leaving us.

It's okay.

I'll be okay.

I'm gonna show this to your father.

- Counselor. Thanks for meeting me. | - Sure.

Can I buy you a drink, Mr. Thomas? | He makes an excellent martini.

Just water for me, please.


...the judge thinks we should offer | a new plea agreement.

She feels the community might be | better served without this trial.

How do you feel about it?


My job is to represent | the interests of the people...

...and make an effort to be objective.

I ask because I know | you're a churchgoer.

Now you're set to prosecute | a man of God.

Your priest broke the law...

...and a young girl is dead.

If he's a man of God, then, personally, | I think he's even more subject... the laws of moral behavior. | If it were up to me, he'd get no deal.

And forgiveness and compassion? | Isn't that part of your creed?

Or does that just get in the way | of your work?

If you have compassion | for your client...'ll persuade him to accept this:

Charges reduced | to reckless endangerment.

Twelve months in a county jail.

Reducible to six, plus probation, | if he stays out of trouble.

Somehow I expect | he can manage that.

But please understand me. | If he refuses, I will seek the maximum.

Father Moore has made it clear | there will be no plea agreement.

He will not lie or admit to something | he is not guilty of.

- And he was never neglectful of Emily. | - "Never neglectful"?

Have you seen | the postmortem photographs?

We'll go to trial. My client wants | the public to know the truth.


So do I.

Have a good night, counselor.

Let the record show that the defendant | and his counsel are present...

...and that the jury is seated.
