Twenty-eight years later Tom had grown to become a menace and notorious criminal in the society with a record of all manner of conviction ranging from theft, rape and murder. His defence attorney was a strong team. The case is a defining moment in Keith’s prosecuting career, Keith is not someone who is easily coerced into plea bargaining by the defence, but when he received the shock of his life that the accused person was his own biological son whom he had abandoned almost three decades ago, plea bargaining was inevitable.

Tom was not happy that his mother never mentioned his name in a letter Steve showed to him by Steve, he got jealous of Steve and poisoned him. The story reached it’s climax with the sentencing remarks by Tremaine Hernandez. A must read.
