Rough Justice - November 2001
James Highwood, a well-known journalist, presenter of a TV programme on "British Justice", and atheist who has written in favour of euthanasia, is charged with murder after confessing to the suffocation of his brain-damaged baby son. He comes into conflict with the Judge and the Prosecutor (a Catholic and a firm believer in the sanctity of life), as he battles to have his intentions understood.
