In reality, Sam and the two girls were accomplices who used the trial as a way to get money from Kelly's wealthy family. Plot[ edit ] A popular Miami area high school guidance counselor , Sam Lombardo, is accused of rape by two female students, a wealthy and popular girl named Kelly Van Ryan and a poor outcast named Suzie Toller. To celebrate their success, the three accomplices have sex. Her blood and teeth are found at the beach while her car is found at a bus terminal. They reveal that Suzie has a genius I. Suzie panics and goes to Kelly for help. She kisses him on the cheek and as she walks off, he tells her to be good. Sam returns to his beach bungalow to find Ray taking a shower. From outside her room three shots are heard, then Ray exits the room and collapses on the ground. He suspects the trio are working a scam, telling both Kelly and Suzie that Sam has already transferred the money to an off-shore account. She had been sleeping with Sam yet could not get him to bail her out, had discovered that Sam and Kelly were now sleeping together, and used it to pull him into her plot, starting with having him befriend Ray. They were partners, setting everyone up so they could split the money just two ways. When Ray fights back, he is shot and killed by a very much alive Suzie. Kelly assures Suzie they can trust each other, but separately tells Sam over the phone that they may have to get rid of Suzie. Meanwhile, Ray goes to Kelly's house to confront her. She kills him as revenge for killing Kelly and her friend, Davie, and for arresting her on a drug charge when he realized she had witnessed the murder the arrest from which Sam had not bailed her out.
