Crime After Crime tells the story of the legal battle to free Debbie Peagler, a woman doing 25 years-to-life due to her connection to the murder of the man who abused her. Debbie’s story takes a turn twenty years into her sentence when two attorneys with no criminal experience step forward to take her case.
Filmmaker Yoav Potash documented this saga in and out of prison for over five years not as a journalist, but as part of Deborah’s legal team – the official legal videographer. This gave him unprecedented and exclusive access to this story.
