7-8pm -- AMERICAN JUSTICE® - A Teenage Murder
Mystery
This was one of the thorniest cases in
Pennsylvania jurisprudence, not solely due to the
heinous nature of the crime, but for the
precedent it set. Lisa Michelle Lambert was twice
tried and twice incarcerated for the same crime,

jeopardy. 


Conviction was largely based on the hearsay

as her daughter lay dying with a slit throat and
a rope around her neck, she uttered: "Michelle
did it." Examine the conflicting evidence and
complicated caselaw that led to this decision.
Featuring interviews with prosecutors, the

proof of the legal maxim that hard cases make for
bad law.

Tarlton. The 42-year-old manager of a local

and an affair with Celeste. After testing the

confessed and was sentenced to serve three

Bill up on a platter." Analyze the evidence and
watch a remarkable jailhouse interview, as
