A Time to Kill

Question: When Carl Lee Hailey visited Jake to tell him that he was thinking about killing those 2 men, wouldn't he have been required to report that to law enforcement? It's not considered attorney/client privilege when you tell your lawyer that you are planning to kill someone. And then he went home and told his wife about it, so wouldn't that also make her an accessory?

Question: Why does it matter if the psychiatrist was convicted of statutory rape? How does it affect his ability to determine Carl Lee's sanity?

Answer: The conviction, and his subsequent lying about it, bring his credibility seriously in doubt.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when Sandra Bullock character is in the hospital and the nurse revealed to her that Carl Lee was innocent, look carefully at the TV. You can see Jake, Harry Rex and Lucent standing outside the courthouse, but in the very next scene they haven't even left the courtroom.
