When asked about her partner’s guilty plea, Alicia explains: “It’s important to remember that even innocent people sometimes plead guilty.”
But the law firm of Florrick, Agos & Lockhart hasn’t given up yet on Cary. They throw one last Hail Mary. Led by partner Diane Lockhart, the firm tries their best to find a violation in the work of the State’s Attorney. They have five hours and 30 minutes to find it before Cary is taken into custody.
