Zodiac is a 2007 American detective thriller film written and directed by David Fincher and written by James Vanderbilt. It is based on Robert Graysmith’s 1986 non-fiction book of the same name.

Double jeopardy is a procedural defence (often employed in common law jurisdictions) that prohibits an accused person from being prosecuted again in the same jurisdiction on the same (or similar) accusations after an acquittal and, in rare situations, prosecutorial and/or judicial misconduct.  The peremptory plea, which may take the precise forms of autrefois acquit (‘already acquitted’) or autrefois convict (‘previously convicted’), is a variant in civil law nations. These concepts appear to have their origins in ancient Roman law, including the non-bis in the idem premise.
