“The state has not produced one iota of medical evidence that the crime Tom Robinson is charged with ever took place. It has relied instead upon the testimony of two witnesses whose evidence has not only been called into serious question on cross-examination, but has been flatly contradicted by the defendant. The defendant is not guilty, but somebody in this courtroom is.”

– Harper Lee

To Kill a Mockingbird, Chapter 20. Atticus in his masterful closing argument demonstrates what a first-class lawyer he is. He believes Tom Robinson is innocent, but somebody in the courtroom is guilty – pointing fingers at Mayella and Bob Ewing who allow an innocent black man to stand trial for a crime they know he did not commit.
