CRIME AFTER CRIME: THE BATTLE TO FREE DEBBIE PEAGLER
Wednesday, August 17 at 7:30pm
Live via Skype: Filmmaker Yoav Potash
Members $9 / Public $13 Includes Film, Discussion and Reception
In 1983, Deborah Peagler, a woman brutally abused by her boyfriend, was sentenced to 25
years-to-life for her connection to his murder. Twenty years later, as she languished in
prison, a California law allowing incarcerated domestic-violence survivors to reopen their
cases was passed. Enter a pair of rookie land-use attorneys convinced that with the incontrovertible
evidence that existed, they could free Deborah in a matter of months. What they
didn't know was the depth of corruption and politically driven resistance they'd encounter,
sending them down a nightmarish, bureaucratic rabbit hole of injustice. The outrageous twists
and turns in this consummately crafted saga are enough to keep us on the edge of our seats.
Meanwhile, the spirit, fortitude, and love all three characters marshal in the face of this wrenching
marathon is nothing short of miraculous. We fall in love with the remarkable triumvirate as they
battle a warped criminal-justice system and test whether it's beyond repair. USA, 2007, 95 min.
