Proof of Intent: A Charley Sloan Courtroom Thriller
(2002) with William Coughlin

typical case. When famous author and hometown hero Miles Dane is arrested for
murdering his wife, it seems like an open-and-shut case. With no credible

prosecution's case is airtight.
The police suspect that Dane had planned this crime many

As the trial begins, it's still unclear where Miles
Dane's wild imaginings stop and reality begins. Or whether he is
committing the ultimate sacrifice in order to atone for something he did
long ago. Only in the crucible of the final, fevered moments of trial
will Charley finally put the pieces together and reveal the stunning
