Goofs

When the police detective and a uniformed officer visit Johnson at his apartment the uniformed officer casually goes to the closet and begins searching it, discovering a blood soaked shirt. Since the detective did not have/produce a search warrant when they arrived, the bloody shirt would have been illegally obtained evidence. Every lawyer, including Ben, would know that and would have had the evidence thrown out. Without the bloody shirt the case should never have gone to trial. See more »
