CRIME AFTER CRIME tells the story of the legal battle to free Debbie Peagler, a jailed survivor of domestic violence. Over 26 years in prison could not crush the spirit of this determined African-American woman, despite what she has experienced. Her story takes an unexpected turn two decades later when two lawyers take on 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 attracts global attention to victims of wrongful incarceration and abuse, and becomes a matter of life and death once more.
