    About TheodoreEdit

    When Sam leaps into convicted Cuban felon Jesus Ortega (played by Stephen Domingas) who, along with fellow immigran Raul Casta, is on death row awaiting their execution dates for their sentence for being convicted for the murder of a Tallahasse, FL area Catholic parish priest and the theft of $6 from the parish strong box in 1971, he is led to believe he is there to clear both he and Raul for the crime.

    The Assistant DA, Margerita Lorrea Tearsa (Jenny Gago) who works for, Moody, is running for governor on the basis of being hard on crime and so often pushes sentences up as high as he can and arranged for all five death row inmates to be there. In the original history, Tearsa is caught helping Jesus and Raul, and not only fails to save him but is disbarred and ends up a social worker in an unemployment agency for the rest of her life. When the bullet that actually slayed the priest is found, with Al and Ziggy's help behind a paining on the parish walls conclusively proves that Jesus’ gun shot and killed the priest, Moody shows up and threatens to destroy Tearsa's law career.

    Moody's attempt to end the lives of Raul, and ruin the career of Assistant DA Tearsa is foiled, and he disgraced as Sam, in the moments before he, as Jesus, is to be electrocuted, is advised by Al to confess on Jesus's behalf to the death of the priest, and to get Tearsa, who was handling their case, to contact a phone number and new name of the witness who was with Raul when the priest was killed, who is, at the time of JesusEion, is practing medicine in New York City.
