Film Screening: "Crime After Crime", Tuesday 10/16, 7:00pm

Women's Law Student Association (WLSA) presents a film screening and discussion of the award-winning 2011 documentary Crime After Crime.

Crime After Crime tells the dramatic story of the legal battle to free Debbie Peagler, an incarcerated survivor of domestic violence. She was wrongly convicted of the murder of her abusive boyfriend, and given 26 years in prison.

Her story takes an unexpected turn two decades later when two rookie land-use attorneys step forward to take her case. Through their perseverance, they bring to light long-lost witnesses, new testimonies from the men who committed the murder, and proof of perjured evidence. Their investigation ultimately attracts global attention to victims of wrongful incarceration and abuse, and becomes a matter of life and death once more.

Tuesday, October 16
University of MN Law School
7PM in Mondale Hall, Room 25
The film director, Yoam Potash, and an attorney featured in the film will both come for a Q&A session afterwards.
