Absalom’s lawyer, Mr. Carmichael, wants him to plead guilty. He also wanted it to be known that Absalom only fired the gun because he panicked. Unfortunately Absalom's cousin is able to hire a good lawyer who successfully argues that his client was not even at the killing. There is no distinction between degrees of murder in South Africa, at the time, so Absalom is sentenced murder which carries the death penalty.
