The Center for Law in Public Service is pleased to present a special documentary viewing of Crime After Crime with Professor Mary Pat Treuthart this Thursday, Nov. 8 at 5:30 p.m. in the courtroom. Crime After Crime is an exclusive documentary film detailing the dramatic legal battle to free Debbie Peagler, a woman imprisoned for more than 26 years for her connection to the death of the man who abused her. Filmed in and out of prison for five years, Crime After Crime features exclusive access to Ms. Peagler and the two rookie attorneys who take on her case and bring to light long-lost witnesses, new testimonies from the actual murderers, and proof of perjured evidence. The investigation takes on profound urgency when the case becomes a matter of life and death.
