He's not a saint, and he's not a sinner. But is he a cold-blooded murderer? Yes, it's true: Nathan Chapman killed someone. But it wasn't murder. It was an accident. No malice, no forethoughtjust a horrible misfortune. Why then did he plead guilty to first degree murder? He didn't. The attorney, who Chapman met fifteen minutes before his trial began, plead guilty on his behalf. Why? Simple. "No one's going to believe it was an accident," his lawyer said, regarding his black client's explanation. So he pleaded Chapman guilty to first degree murder. Chapman's fate was sealed. In Pennsylvania, life is life and there's no time-off for good behavior. So he turned to God and God answered. Maybe it wasn't the answer he was hoping for, but it is answer he learned to live with.show more
