Where are they now?!?
3 February 1999 | by See all my reviews

Well, in my point of view, I figured that the real-life judge that was the basis of the movie, is dead. The young lady who was harmed, is now a lawyer in a big city, somewhere in the western part of the USA! She did get married and have a family!
