This excerpt from "An Ordinary Crime" examines Keith Riddick's plea bargain with District Attorney Tom Lock in which he agreed to testify against Terence Garner in Garner's trial (even though he knew Garner was not involved in the crime and had told his lawyer so).

According to Riddick, the prosecutors structured a deal in which they knew Riddick was lying when he denied he had a cousin--a cousin who likely was the real shooter in the armed robbery and whose name was also "Terrance."

This video excerpt questions those involved in the plea agreement: Riddick, District Attorney Tom Lock, and Riddick's attorney, Robert Denning.
