Storyline

When a prominent lawyer is murdered, his wife is promptly arrested and charged for the crime. She then points the finger at her stepson whom she claimed to be having an affair with. This gave enough reasonable doubt to get her a mistrial but twee years later, prosecutors arrested and charged her again. Second time round proved unlucky for her. Written by mahajanssen

An okayish TV Drama, but nothing new
11 August 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I thought this was a typically TV style film with no real effort to make itself as anything more. Ex- Charlie's Angel, Cheryl Ladd, is fairly watchable as the seductive and subtlely wicked step mom of a young man and husband to a rich, but lonely old guy. His brother is Nick Mancuso, the detective that brought her into the small town on Parole. Well basically the women wants the husband's cash and also his twentysomething son, the husband thinks she is for real, the son can't keep up fighting her sexy and seductive behaviour forever and the detective knows that she'll ruin his life. With a little more sexyness, this would've been a cheesy, soft-porn flik, but with the constant need to start touching bodies and removing clothes only to cut to next scenes and relatively bad acting, forced into the worn story, this is something left uncomfortably in the middle
