�Rusty� Sabich is reluctant to accept a case involving the murder of his colleague, Carolyn Polhemus, due to a previous affair with her. However, the investigation has Sabich as the primary suspect after surprising evidence begin to appear, especially knowledge of Sabich�s affair with Carolyn. Sabich starts losing the people around him that he could trust when his boss, Raymond Horgan turns on him and strongly enforces his guilt.

The one person Sabich can count on is the man he often fought opposite in the courtroom, Sandy Stern. They do all they can to discredit the evidence and prove Sabich�s innocence. However, along the way they discover there is a heap load of corrupt tales tied to the murder. Will the two be able to get Sabich innocent, or does Sabich have too much against him that even his own defense attorney doubts him?

Presumed Innocent is a film adaptation of the novel of the same name by Scott Turow. It was released in July 1990 in the US. It won a BMI Film Music Award and was nominated for an Edgar Alla Poe award.
