This tv film was very superficial and really didn't tell the story the way it deserves to be told. I first became aware of Marla Hanson's terrible ordeal in the summer of 1986. I was a young private in the United States Army having basic training and advanced individual training at Fort Jackson, South Carolina. It is one of the worst places you could imagine to take basic at! While standing guard in the day room one day, I happened to pick up a Newsweek magazine that talked about Marla Hanson's horrible story and how she was so viciously attacked. I hated what those men did to her, they slashed her face so badly that she could have bled to death and it ruined her career as a fashion model. When I was in college, I learned even more about Marla's ordeal. She was attacked again in the courtroom by a lawyer named Alton Maddox. He was under investigation at the time for throwing his briefcase at a judge during another trial. He is an African-American who uses it as an excuse for his clients. Without introducing a scrap of evidence, he charged Marla Hanson with being a hooker and of using men to further her career. Marla said later on she felt like she was being attacked a second time in the courtroom. She spoke out about her ordeal and criticized the judge for allowing it. Judge Jeffrey Atlas blasted her in court and drove her to tears! He was so angry at the way she criticized him! It made me sick to my stomach that this cruel thin skinned man hurt poor Marla the way he did. She was an innocent victim who was put on trial and he did nothing to stop it!!!!I hated what he did to her and I think they should have thrown the son of a bitch off the bench for good and yet he is still a judge today! Even though Marla was not raped, the ordeal she went thru is typical of many rape victims at the hands of callous defense lawyers, they put the victim on trial.
