  • 1989-Defended James Arthur "Jim" Williams during the first trial (of four) for the 1981 shooting death of Danny Hansford. The case was the inspiration for the book, "Midnight In The Garden Of Good and Evil" by author John Berendt, published in 1994. Williams was convicted of the murder and sentenced to life in prison, although appealed, posting a $200,000 bond. Cook later received, anonymously, a copy of the police report showing the arresting office contradicted himself, and the judgement was overturned. A new trial was ordered.
