Moment of Truth?
18 November 2006 | by RepMaj04See all my reviews

Even though this movie is based on a true story, it takes a few liberties. The victim was a Phillipine immigrant named Teresita Basa. Not Terry Devereaux. The nurse who was haunted by the victims voice, and her husband, were immigrants from India. But more important, the murderer was a black man, which gave the case a bit of a racial element.

This murder happened in Chicago, and the jury was a mostly black jury. Had the murderer not confessed, the jury was ready to convict him on a lesser charge, and he would have been given a light sentence. Unfortunately, the plea bargain allowed a sentence that was much too light for the crime he committed. He is probably back on the street right now. Maybe that's why the victims name was changed. Her family flew in from the Phillipines for the trial, and they were shocked at the punishment that we allowed in America, for murder.
