missing. While DNA tests revealed that the blood on
the bridge was probably Rachel’s, there were no
witnesses or other clues linking the two events to an
actual suspect. When another girl went missing, and
signs of abduction were evident in her apartment,
parole officer David Zarragoza became suspicious about
possible involvement of one of his parolees, Rex Allen
Krebs, who had attacked and raped women in their homes
11 years earlier. After bringing him in for
questioning, police learned that Krebs had sought
counseling for his violent sexual tendencies while in
prison, but had not qualified for the program. They
also found evidence linking Krebs to the two attacks.
Allen voluntarily confessed to the DA. Despite his
concerted efforts to get counseling and evident
remorse, Allen was sentenced to death. Was the prison
system partially to blame for these heinous crimes?
You be the judge.

Levin, a young, attractive and wealthy teenager, was

inside the preppie murder, featuring first-hand
interviews with the clique of friends who knew the

7-8pm -- AMERICAN JUSTICE® - The Central Park Jogger
Case: What Went Wrong? 
On April 19, 1989, a young woman jogging in Central
Park, was bludgeoned, raped, and left to die. The
crime seized headlines and heightened racial tension
in New York City. The police charged a group of Harlem
teens with gang rape, as the city prayed for the
anonymous victim's recovery. Five teenage boys
confessed on videotape to the brutal crime. Later,
they recanted, claiming the police had coerced their
confessions. All five were convicted and sent to
prison. And now, because of a startling new
confession, AMERICAN JUSTICE: THE CENTRAL PARK JOGGER
CASE: WHAT WENT WRONG? completely reexamines the case
that American Justice had previously covered. In
January 2002, nearly thirteen years after the crime,
Matias Reyes, 31, a serial rapist, confessed to
beating and raping the Central Park jogger – alone.
His confession was backed up by DNA tests. Semen found
inside the victim and on her sock had been his. The
semen had been explained away as belonging to a sixth
“mystery” member of the gang. In December 2002, the
convictions of the five young men were vacated. They
are now suing for their lost years behind bars. But
even with the startling new evidence, many argue that
it’s not clear that the original defendants were
wrongly convicted. AMERICAN JUSTICE attempts to answer
the question: What really happened that August night
in Central Park? Interviews include the original
defendants and their attorneys, a false-confession
expert, a former NYPD detective, a trial juror, a law
professor, journalists, authors and others involved in
the case.

injuries, Lionel claimed that he only used wrestling
holds that he'd seen on TV. But prosecutors charged
Lionel with first-degree murder. Would the jury
believe that Tiffany died of innocent child's play--or
would they put Lionel behind bars? Interviewees
include defense attorney James Lewis, who used the
controversial "wrestling defense" strategy.

Twenty years before the O.J. Simpson case, a

overwhelming evidence. On August 2, 1976, Davis went
on a murderous rampage in a Fort Worth mansion,
killing two people, including a 12-year-old girl, and
wounding two others. But despite a wealth of evidence
and eyewitnesses, Davis' high-powered team of
attorneys, including Richard "Racehorse" Haynes,
managed to win his acquittal. Then when Davis was

7-8pm -- AMERICAN JUSTICE® - Shotgun Justice
One night in 1973, two gas station attendants, who
lived miles apart, were brutally murdered by gunshot
wounds to the head. A troubled seventeen-year-old
named Michael Pardue was quickly identified as the
prime suspect in both cases, and was questioned for
three days, during which time another victim was
found. Pardue ultimately confessed to all three
killings and was convicted and sent to jail. Over the
next two decades, Pardue escaped from jail three times
and was recaptured. Under the 3-strikes law, he was
sentenced to life in prison for the escapes. But in
1995, a federal judge decided that his lawyer had not

A drug ambush went bad, and a Texas Ranger was killed

a quarter of a century after the shooting, the man
convicted of the crime speaks out on national
television. AMERICAN JUSTICE: DON’T MESS WITH TEXAS
examines the 1978 drug raid that ended with two lives
tragically altered forever. Texas Ranger Bob Doherty
died of a gunshot wound, the first Ranger to be killed

university philosophy student, was arrested for the
murder. Now Greg Ott tells AMERICAN JUSTICE his side
of the story. Viewers learn that it was a botched raid

Greg thought he was being robbed and never even saw
the Ranger who was shot through a closed door. Since
being sentenced to life in prison, Greg has been a
model inmate who has twice been approved for parole.
But both times his parole was revoked after Texas
Rangers flooded the parole board with protest letters.
Today, a former warden, dozens of prison guards, and

preached, in January 1996, Chevie killed the Mueller
family in Russelville, Arkansas. Already wanted for a
list of crimes, Chevie managed to avoid state and
federal authorities for almost two years, but was

At his trial, Chevie's mother provided damning

three consecutive life terms. But many say that
Chevie’s father should also be held accountable.
Interviews with Chevie's mother and prosecuting
attorneys consider the thorny ethics and legality of
