A young Italian Mafioso helps get rid of a body in Queens. In Manhattan, a hedge fund portfolio manager misrepresents his company's assets to investors. At JFK International Airport, a college student returns from Jamaica with cocaine stuffed in the handle of her suitcase. These are just a few of the stories that come to life in this colorful look at the two federal courts tasked with maintaining order in New York City. Entering not just into the courtrooms but into the lives of those who pass through its doors, Johnny Dwyer introduces the judges, attorneys, and defendants, providing the nuances of the criminal justice system that are missing from the headlines.
