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

Fairly decent movie with some stars
17 September 2004 | by (Kettering, Ohio, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie wasn't "exceptionally" good. I did, however, think it was worth watching. The movie centered around an older, sexier female, played by Cheryl Ladd of the "Charlie's Angels" days. She tries to go after the money of a friend of a detective. Overall, the storyline I thought dragged on and needed something else. There also was her sister played by Nancy Cartwright who does the voice for Bart Simpson on the show, "The Simpsons." If you are in to dramas, it's definitely worth watching. I found that I was watching it for a little bit then turning the channels back and forth during commercials. I don't think there could be anymore to the story because of the way it ended.
