7-8pm -- AMERICAN JUSTICE® - The Girl in the Box.
In 1977, Cameron Hooker kidnapped 20-year-old
hitchhiker Colleen Stan and forced her to be his sex
slave for seven years of physical and psychological
abuse. At times she was even kept in a coffin-like box
under his and his wife Janice's bed. Yet through it
all, she stayed, even when it seemed she could escape.
In the end, it would be left to a jury to answer the
question: Was Colleen Stan brainwashed and forced to
endure years of sexual degradation and mental torture
as she and Janice Hooker contended, or a willing
partner in her own enslavement, and as Cameron Hooker
maintained, in a consensual "love" relationship?

West was charged with 10 murders and Fred with 12. The
couple sexually tortured, murdered, and mutilated
their victims in an orgy of depravity that lasted more
than 20 years. In the end, Fred cheated justice--just
a month before his first court appearance, he hanged
himself in his maximum-security prison cell. It would
be left to Rosemary to face the charges alone.

No one knows how many people have been wrongfully
convicted. But for every one, there’s someone who has

of the innocent. But rarely is that dream realized.
AMERICAN JUSTICE: ANOTHER MAN’S CRIME presents one
that was. When an innocent police officer in Warwick,

Shot.
The folks of Lexington, Kentucky love two things:
Horses and University of Kentucky sports. But in 1994,

sentence, testified that Terence Garner was the
shooter. Henderson, for the defense, said the shooter

Celeste Beard Johnson at a psychiatric hospital in
Austin and the two women had become friends. Police

On the southeastern coast of Louisiana, in Plaquemine

Situated at the mouth of the Mississippi river on
Breton Sound, Venice seems like the edge of the world.
Longtime resident Alvin Latham, 46, was a bagger at

life. He had his job, his six-pack of beer, his weekly

AMERICAN JUSTICE: MYSTERY AT SEA reports that Alvin
Latham's simple life was turned upside down when he
survived the shipwreck that first turned him into a
local celebrity – and then into a suspect in a
mysterious death. Alvin faced questions for which he
had few good answers. What really happened on the open
water during that storm on Breton Sound? The search

swept away by forces beyond his control. Only a few
details were known for certain. On a hot summer night,
15 miles off the coast of Louisiana, a violent storm

In the end, the boat went down, leaving the captain

tragically altered forever. Texas Ranger Bob Doherty
died of a gunshot wound, the first Ranger to be killed
in the line of duty in 47 years. Greg Ott, a
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
and that the Ranger’s death was a terrible accident.
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
even the man who prosecuted Greg feel he should be
released. His case poses the questions: Has Greg been
punished enough for his crime? Or is there never
enough punishment for killing a police officer
regardless of the circumstances?

The son of medicine show performers, Buster Keaton was
one of the kings of comedy in vaudeville and the
silent era in Hollywood. After a string of brilliant
films, his life spun out of control in the late 1920s

marriage fell apart, and he became afflicted with
alcoholism and mental illness. He made a comeback in
the 1950s, when many of his silent masterpieces were
re-released, and although his career may have lacked
the luster of Charlie Chaplin's, some consider Keaton
the most gifted comedian of his time.

7-8pm -- AMERICAN JUSTICE® - Justifiable Homicide
Thurman Martin was a well-known, well-connected figure
in the tiny Georgia town of Ludowici. But the
64-year-old “good ol’ boy” was hated by his family.
And in May of 1997, his grandson, Billy Crowder,
decided to do something about it. When Martin
disappeared, it was Crowder who reported him missing.
But when Joe Stanton, a friend of Crowder, was
overheard bragging that he had helped him kill Martin,
the case broke open, and Stanton and Crowder were
charged with murder, manslaughter and armed robbery.
Trial exposed the decades of abuse that Martin had
inflicted upon his wife, children and grandchildren,
and how Crowder had finally done what so many others
had wished they could have done themselves. The
prosecution argued that it was a straightforward,
premeditated murder. The jury sided with the defense
and delivered a verdict intended to carry a nominal
5-year sentence. To their shock and dismay, the judge
sentenced Crowder to life in prison. Speak with

In May of 1999, 18-year-old Hannah Hill left her Ohio
home and never returned. Six days later, police found
her body in the trunk of her car, beaten, strangled

stemmed, at least in part, to the failure of police to
process a missing person’s report for more than 48
hours after Hill’s mother filed it. During that time,
calls about an illegally parked car came in, but were
not linked to Hill’s disappearance. Once her body was

7-8pm -- 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.
