A crucial chapter in the life of famed defense attorney Earl Rogers is re-created in the made-for-TV Final Verdict.

Defending a client whom he knows to be guilty, Rogers foments a crisis in his own family--and within himself. Glenn Ford co-stars as Rogers' minister father. Final Verdict debuted September 9, 1991, over the TNT cable service.
