Cape Fear did Sam Bowden break the law?

By burying the evidence that would've got his lawyer Max Cady (De Niro) time off?


Time off his sentence**

    I'm uncertain if it was actually illegal, but wilfully withholding evidence that could exonerate his client is undoubtedly against his professional ethics as a lawyer and would most likely get him disbarred.

    Didn't you watch the movie? Watch the scene with Fred Thompson. He was supposed to represent his client fairly and rationally, which was the whole point of Cady coming after him. No, he didn't do what was right. As for whether he broke the law, who knows, but he certainly didn't do his job as best he could and people died around him.
