Erin Sanders (Traci Scott) and Catherine Dent (Melanie Scott) were working on their TV shows, Zoey 101 and The Shield before working together on this movie. In Zoey 101, Sanders played brainy girl Quinn Pensky. While in The Shield, Dent played patrol officer Danielle "Danny" Sofer; the lover to Michael Chiklis' character Vic Mackey. Coincidentally, both shows ended in 2008 and Zoey 101 aired during The Shield's 4th season. See more »

Seventeen-year-old Erin Sanders (as Traci Scott) corroborates a classmate's story about being sexually molested by an otherwise beloved science teacher. To upset students and entertain viewers, he is arrested at work. We quickly learn there's another side to the story. The presumed victim, pretty and popular blonde Chloe Rose (as Devon Cavanor), got a bad grade from Rob Stewart (as Gilbert "Gil" Adkins) and decided to get revenge. Heart-throbbing boyfriend Zack Peladeau (as Jay Allerson) helps Ms. Rose get even...
This "Lifetime" TV Movie is supposed to be based on a true story; that's somewhat believable, but this presentation struggles with credulity. The student liar suffers the most, as Ms. Sanders seems way too smart for her part. The writers' having an undercover teacher, red-haired Alex Paxton-Beesley (as June Gailey), enter the drama and attempt to uncover the truth helps keep the story interesting. Director Anthony Lefresne does good work with Ms. Paxton-Beesley in the classroom. She should have been the protagonist.
***** Guilty at 17 (7/20/14) Anthony Lefresne ~ Erin Sanders, Alex Paxton-Beesley, Chloe Rose, Zack Peladeau
