Miyama is an unorthodox lawyer who loves to take on criminal cases with a 99.9% chance of verdict certainty, and search for that minuscule nugget of truth that can overturn it. The “99.9 Criminal Lawyer” returns for a second season after taking the television world by storm starting April 2016. Providing more of the high courtroom drama unique to the series, this second season delves into Miyama’s battle with a judge as he seeks to uncover that 0.1% shred of evidence that can win a case. A young woman visits his law office claiming her father has been wrongly accused of murder. She is accompanied by a friend and former judge who insists Miyama litigate for a reduced sentence since a guilty conviction seems a foregone conclusion. But a surprised Miyama and partner, Sada, take on the case instead to pursue the whole truth against the wishes of their client.
