Check it Out: Dummy

Based on the true story of a deaf-mute, illiterate African American man (played by LaVar Burton) who is accused of murdering a prostitute. Paul Sorvino plays the deaf attorney who defends him but is unable to communicate with him. Watch as the case that challenged our legal system and challenges our concept of justice unfolds to see if the state can try a man incapable of defending himself. Check out Dummy from the law library.
