(BPT) - The new short film Forgiving Johnny, directed by Oscar-winning director Ben Proudfoot and produced by the digital consultancy Publicis Sapient, follows Los Angeles County public defender Noah Cox and his client, Johnny, an individual with developmental disabilities who faced a 20-year prison sentence after an altercation with his brother-in law. A new digital platform created by Publicis Sapient, in partnership with the Los Angeles County Public Defender’s Office, allowed Cox to digitally and quickly access Johnny’s records, which had a significant impact on the outcome of Johnny’s case.
