Real Justice - Part 1 (#1905)
Homicides, drug arrests, car theft, assault and battery -- it's all in a day's work for the prosecutors of Boston's Suffolk County district attorney's office. In this special report, FRONTLINE goes inside the real-life workings of America's criminal justice system to reveal the offers, counteroffers, deals and compromises that keep cases moving through our crowded courts. From district court, where mundane cases are handled swiftly, to the superior court, where prosecutors tackle the most difficult murder cases, the programs follow the police, prosecutors, defense attorneys and defendants as they make their way through a court system that handles 50,000 criminal cases each year.
