Just a heads up the legal side will be iffy at best because I'm not a lawyer.
A blind man walked into the DA building "I'm here to see the prosecutor for the Faith Lehane double homicide case." He said to the woman sitting at the front desk.
"Down the hall, third door on your right - if he is in." The receptionist said automatically.
"Thank you." The blind man said as he walked down the hall using his cane to 'guide' him as to not draw suspicion to himself. When he got to the door he paused to listen. Hearing a heartbeat inside, he knocked.
"One second." A male voice on the other side said. As the ADA opened the door he was surprised to see a blind man on the other side. "Come in," the ADA said as the blind man entered the small office the ADA had "is there anything I can get for you?" He asked.
"No. Thanks for the offer though." The blind man said.
The ADA walked back behind his desk and sat down. "I heard you were coming to discuss the Lehane case. I'm sorry to have wasted your time but that's an open and shut case if there ever was one. She was one of the original suspects and her confession makes anything else moot." The ADA said.
"I have to disagree with you there." The blind man said.
"Why would you say that?" The ADA asked quizzically. Wondering if this man knew more than he was letting on.
"Parental rights in the case were ignored by not informing either parent of the charges against her so that they could mount a defense. Also no effort was made to determine her state of mind when she confessed, so the confession should not have been allowed. Add that to the fact that she was attacked just before the alleged murder. A fact her original defense team failed to raise." The blind man said. He worked not to grin as he heard the ADA's heart beat skyrocket.
"Mistakes made by the defendant’s council are not my concern. Now I'm going to ask you to leave." The ADA said nervously. Who was this man? And even if there were mistakes they weren't critical for the conviction, he thought to himself.
As the blind man turned to leave he paused, turned to the ADA, and said plainly "By the way my name is Matt Murdoch and I'm Faith's father." Those two pieces of information caused the ADA to nearly faint.
