uncorroborated evidence of one police officer and

Examine the 11-year legal odyssey that followed,
including two convictions based on faulty
eye-witness testimony by Jennifer Thompson.

Cotton reported that another inmate boasted how
Cotton was serving his time for the crime. It was

that Cotton was innocent. Legal experts,
scientists and lawyers discuss how improved
forensic testing has helped ensure that only the
guilty pay for their crimes.

A gentle grandmother with a sweet smile, Margaret

the discovery of her husband's charred body in
the desert outside Las Vegas opened an

Having amassed a small fortune in real estate
after moving to Vegas in the 1960s, Rudin lived
the life of a high roller, dating and marrying
frequently. Margaret, his fifth wife, at first
appeared to be a good match, but their marriage

in Ohio. But his execution may be only months

the crime. Narrated by Paul Winfield.

8-9pm -- AMERICAN JUSTICE® - The Green Beret
Murder Mystery 
Among the fundamental tenets of constitutional
law are the right not to be tried twice for the
same crime and the principle that all people are
innocent until proven guilty. The case of Dr.
Jeffrey MacDonald suggested otherwise. 
In 1970, MacDonald's wife and two children were
murdered at their home in Fort Bragg, North
Carolina. Though MacDonald suffered serious
injuries, including a punctured lung and
testified that he saw people standing above him
as he lay on his couch, the Army brough criminal
charges against him. After a lengthy hearing, the
case against MacDonald was dismissed, and he
earned an honorable discharge. The Army never
stopped pursuing the case, however, and in 1974
MacDonald was convicted for the same crime by the
Grand Jury. Extensive interviews with MacDonald
and with military and civilian prosecutors and
defense lawyers examine whether MacDonald was
subjected to a modern-day witch-hunt.

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,

evidence of the victim's mother, who claimed that
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
