Fascinating case
27 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the story behind the groundbreaking murder trial that moved incest/pedophile crimes into the courts of justice.

The jurors had to rely on the "uncharged evidence" that showed the accused to be an incestuous child abuser & pedophile; and on the eyewitness testimony of a woman who witnessed the murder 20 years before as an 8-year-old child.

Because of the difficulty of accurately portraying the complex legal evidence, the movie chooses instead to focus on the devastation of all the people who had the misfortune to encounter this man.

The murder conviction was overturned on appeal in 1996 for no other reason than because of judicial error in the initial trial.
