Ron Michaels didn't know Jeffery Hammill. He will soon learn that their lives have become terribly and inextricably linked. In The Bison King, a young woman searching for her biological parents triggers the beginning of a nightmare for three men who will be maliciously prosecuted for the murder of an acquaintance some 26 years earlier. These men are indicted on manufactured evidence, based mostly upon a coerced false confession and the manipulation of the grand jury by an aggressive deputy sheriff and an inexperienced prosecuting attorney. Their arrests, arraignment, and exorbitant bail force them to sit in jail for more than a year before trial.
Throughout his ordeal, Ron Michaels remains steadfast in his faith. He believes that God will give him the strength to see things through. Ron and his attorney, Jim Fleming, rely on their faith to guide them as they plan Ron's defense against charges of murder. The Bison King is a gripping real-life tale of injustice, malice, perseverance, and faith. The Bison King; the meaning of God's 'ninth' commandment, will never be so clear.
