In 1977, a mild-mannered aeronautical engineer sideswiped a parked car in Compton, CA. When he stopped his car to survey the damage, a man named Leon Moore opened the driver-side door, shoved him over, and started driving. He said, “I’m about to save your life.”

We talk to lawyer Stephanie Nally about a con that spanned decades.
