The Rape Case chronicles one lawyer’s seven-year struggle to ensure that long-delayed justice was not permanently denied. This true story details the sensational events of a fall night in 1947 that shocked the sleepy city of Wilmington, Delaware, and left three young men fighting for their lives in a lurid, highly publicized trial. Found guilty, the men languished in jail. Their hope for freedom faded slowly over years, until a young attorney named Irving Morris took up their case. The sole champion of an infamous and unpopular cause, Morris endured derision and numerous courtroom defeats berfore finally winning his clients their freedom. This engaging, detailed account of the events surrounding Delaware’s “trial of the century,” written by the man who ultimately saw that justice was done, is a lesson in the courage and character required of those who would ensure fairness and the rule of law.
