About this item
In fifty years in the courtroom, Cincinnati criminal defense attorney Foss Hopkins represented more than 550 clients. Never far from controversy, Foss specialized in murder and represented a wide array of colorful defendants. William Kuhlman and his gang left a trail of blood from Indiana to Kentucky after hacking up the body of Cincinnati fireman "Cap" Miller. Attractive and naïve Louise Sharpe pumped three bullets into her older lover and left him dying on the floor of his Walnut Hills apartment. After Marie Abbott's farmhand lover killed her husband on their Butler County farm, Marie colluded with him to stage the murder as an accident. Foss lost only two clients to Ohio's electric chair and pulled off some astounding victories. Author Janice Schulz explores the fascinating life and career of Cincinnati's celebrity criminal defense attorney.
