Trial By Jury synopsis
Valerie Alston (Joanne Whalley-Kilmer) is placed on the jury for the criminal case of mob boss Rusty Pirone (Armand Assante), and it's not long before she is threatened by Pirone's right-hand man, Tom Vesey (William Hurt). Though it is clear to the 11 other members of the jury that Pirone is guilty, Valerie must convince them to find him innocent. If she doesn't, her son will be killed. Valerie is only following Vesey's orders out of fear, but her conscience begins to haunt her.
