  • Vincent T. Bugliosi, Jr. is an American attorney and New York Times bestselling author. During his eight years in the Los Angeles County district attorney's office, he successfully prosecuted 105 out of 106 felony jury trials, which included 21 murder convictions without a single loss. He is best known for prosecuting Charles Manson and other defendants accused of the seven Tate-LaBianca murders of August 9–10, 1969. Although Manson did not physically participate in the murders, Bugliosi used circumstantial evidence to show that he had orchestrated the killings. Since leaving the LA district attorney's office in 1972, Bugliosi turned to private practice and represented three criminal defendants, achieving successful acquittals on behalf of all three. The most famous of which was Jennifer Jenkins, whom he defended for the murder of Eleanor "Muff" Graham which occurred on the South Pacific island of Palmyra. The case was the subject of his 1991 #1 New York Times bestselling book And the Sea Will Tell. He has turned down opportunities to represent famous defendants Jeffrey MacDonald and Dan White because he does not represent anyone whom he believes to be guilty of murder.
