Killing Time : Court In The Middle
Andrew Fraser's bestselling and controversial true-crime memoirs are now being adapted into an exciting new television series called Killing Time. From 1975 to 2001, Andrew Fraser was a leading criminal solicitor with a successful national practice. And then it all went horribly wrong. In 1999 he was charged with being knowingly concerned with the importation of a commercial quantity of cocaine. Fraser pleaded guilty to a charge of possessing, trafficking a small quantity and to using cocaine over a period of time. He was sentenced to seven years in maximum security prison. Court in the Middle describes his early years - growing up in a family of lawyers; running hard to build a criminal law practice; his successful years with a national practice and defending high-profile, sometimes notorious, clients including Allan Bond, Laurie Connell, the Pettingill Family and the Morans; his relationship with cocaine addiction and deals; crime and punishment and the shocking details of his time spent in a maximum security prison.
Andrew Fraser was a high-profile lawyer sentenced to seven years' imprisonment for his complicity in importing a commercial quantity of cocaine. He was released early for agreeing to give evidence against serial killer Peter Dupas, with whom he had shared a cell.
