Short biography
Jimmy A. Lerner was a drug addict and felon who was tried and convicted of brutally murdering an unarmed man much smaller than himself. He wrote a fictionalized memoir of his time in prison that was quickly debunked by the New York Times and other sources. The family of his victim successfully sued him to prevent him from profitting from his violent crime.
