It tells a story of how, after Wooten beatened an incumbent judge for his seat in an election, the local DA convened six grand juries to indict Wooten for bogus bribery charges, get Wooten sentenced to 10 years in prison, then later lots of other shenanigans got exposed and an appeals court that overturned another separate but related case came around and handed down an innocent writ for Wooten. Wooten subsequently sued the rogue DA and successfully forced the DA into settlement.

This is a long-ish story, many characters and full of intrigues like a novella, but is all based on real events backed up with court records. Enjoy!

Sue the DA? That DA should be behind bars.
