This updated and significantly expanded edition of Victims of Justice tells the story of Cruz and his two codefendants, Alejandro Hernandez and Stephen Buckley, after the 1983 murder of ten-year-old Jeanine Nicarico. The book follows the story from the day of the crime to the ground breaking trial of seven law officers accused of conspiring to deny Cruz a fair trial.".
