Crime After Crime

.
Yoav Potash / 2011

Crime After Crime tells the dramatic story of the legal battle to free Debbie Peagler, a woman imprisoned for over a quarter century due to her connection to the murder of the man who abused her. Two rookie attorneys step forward to take her case and 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 ultimately attracts global attention to victims of wrongful incarceration and abuse, and the film tells an unforgettable story of a relentless quest for justice.

Press

  • "MAGNIFICENT, swelling from hushed to howling without the help of narration or posturing from the unfailingly dignified Ms. Peagler or her quietly dedicated lawyers. There may well be, as one of her lawyers claims, 'thousands and thousands of Debbies across the U.S.,' but it is this particular one who makes it difficult to leave the theater with dry eyes and an untouched heart."
    The New York Times
  • "Crime After Crime is a deeply affecting account of the very real effect of political corruption, but also of resilience and grace."
    The Los Angeles Times
  • "What makes this story so unbelievable is that despite setback after setback, Debbie remains strong with an unwavering spirit that is awe-inspiring. Who are we to complain about our lives after everything this woman has been through?"
    The Huffington Post
  • "HARROWING, MOVING AND INSPIRING, "Crime After Crime" introduces an unforgettable screen heroine in Peagler, who transcends the forces arrayed against her with uncommon strength and grace."
    The Washington Post
  • This riveting documentary follows the sustained efforts of two land-use attorneys who decide to take on the case of a woman incarcerated for years due to her role in the death of an abusive boyfriend. It relates a great miscarriage of justice—but also one of heroic legal perseverance, with a surprisingly colorful cast of characters."
