The Dock Job
The Clarence Gomery Murder- For-Hire Case Is A Hard-Boiled Detective Novel Come to Life
A former prosecutor is desperate. One of his enemies has him against the ropes. He faces bankruptcy, he’s been humiliated and he might lose his law license.
What does he do? Prosecutors say he tried to turn his ex-con dock installer into a hit man. His attorneys want to argue that their client was set up, but it looks like that defense won’t be allowed at trial, which is scheduled to begin Feb. 24.
However you view it, what happened in the Clarence Gomery alleged murder-for-hire case sounds like it jumped from the pages of a pulp fiction novel.
