Write the following scene:

The setting is a room in a courthouse. A Princeton-educated criminal attorney is interviewing his clients who have been accused of murder (unjustly): a black female prostitute, a white redneck convicted killer and a Southern Baptist preacher who represents both of them spiritually and insists on being in the room. They are having a heated discussion of the evidence against them. Now how do they all sound? How do they speak? What are they saying? They can't sound the same way. Each must have a unique voice.
