    D.A. Ambitious D.A. Victor Scott zealously prosecutes Ed Clary for a woman's murder. But as Clary walks "the last mile" to the electric chair* Scott receives evidence that exonerates the condemned man. Realizing that he's made a terrible mistake he tries to stop the execution but is too late. Humbled by his grievous misjudgement* Scott resigns as a prosecutor. Entering private practice* he employs the same cunning that made his reputation and draws the attention of mob kingpin* Frank Garland. The mobster succeeds in bribing Scott into representing one of his stooges on a murder rap and Scott* in a grand display of courtroom theatrics* wins the case. But soon Scott finds himself embroiled in dirty mob politics. The situation becomes intolerable when his former protege in the D.A.'s office is charged with a murder that seems to implicate her as an informant to the Garland mob. Can Victor defend the woman he secretly loves and also keep his life?
