Billy Leland, a man who faced the federal judicial body, has completed his new book “The Fall of an Angel”: an intuitive look at the duress employed by the US federal courts.

“This book is a true story that illustrates how the government can breach plea agreements and get away with it,” Mr. Leland said about his inspiration for writing. “In my case, I agreed to plead guilty to some crimes that I didn’t commit because the prosecutor told me if I didn’t plead guilty to everything in the indictment, then he was going to arrest my twenty-two-year-old son. I wanted to illustrate just how the federal justice system coerces defendants into guilty pleas.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Billy Leland’s compelling tale follows Mr. Leland from when he plead guilty—entering a plea agreement with the federal prosecutor—which stated that the government would give him a ten-year prison sentence, and leave his son alone. But when Mr. Leland got to the sentencing phase, the judge sentenced him to a term of twenty-one years and five years of probation.

Readers who wish to read this real life courtroom drama can purchase “The Fall of an Angel” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
