Storyline

The story of the battle to free Debbie Peagler, an incarcerated survivor of brutal domestic violence. Over 26 years in prison cannot crush the spirit of this determined African-American woman, despite the injustices she has experienced, first at the hands of a duplicitous boyfriend who beat her and forced her into prostitution, and later by prosecutors who cornered her into a life behind bars for her connection to the murder of her abuser. Her story takes an unexpected turn two decades later when a pair of rookie land-use attorneys cut their teeth on her case -- and attract global attention to the troubled intersection of domestic violence and criminal justice.

A Must See
9 October 2013 | by coachtonya-youngSee all my reviews

I couldn't stop the tears that was in my eyes....

Just watched the True story of Deborah Peagler "Crime After Crime", bought tears to my eyes... This woman was so strong to endure what the Justice System put her through even after they had all the evidence that she was abused by her abusive boyfriend. All I can say is Steve Cooley shame on you and the Justice System. I'd recommend all womens that are going through any type of abuse to watch this movie. Ms. Deborah was a very strong woman. And we must also give credit to her Lawyers; they never gave up on her case. She's living in Peace. I'm just happy she was able to spend her remaining days with her family.
