Patrick Henry affair
The Patrick Henry affair was a French judicial affair concerning Patrick Henry, convicted for the murder of the 8-year-old Philippe Bertrand. A contentious issue in the trial was the validity of capital punishment in France; Robert Badinter, a fervent supporter of its abolition, would ultimately convince the jury to not execute his client.
