2003 - Media launched a frenzy and an innocent man is on death row.  

 

The documentary shows the power of media to incite mob action. 

 

A&E Network premiered a new six-episode, limited documentary series, “The Murder of Laci Peterson” showcasing new interviews with Scott Peterson himself from prison. The series explores the infamous Scott Peterson trial, the case that destroyed a family, gripped a nation and defined an era, as a vehicle for understanding America’s criminal justice system and the ways in which outside influences can affect that system. “The Murder of Laci Peterson” airs on tuesdays on A&E.

 

The media’s obsession with the Scott Peterson trial was unlike anything seen before. This new series will cut through the mass hysteria that has plagued and distorted the reporting of this story to deliver, for the first time, a definitive factual account by those who lived and breathed it every day.

History is rife with such “great prosecutors” convicting the innocent to satisfy the public. Consider the career of Nancy Grace.

 

Before becoming a CNN and Court TV anchor, she was a notorious prosecutor in Alabama. In a blistering 2005 federal appeals opinion, Judge William H. Pryor Jr. found that Grace had “played fast and loose” with core ethical rules in a 1990 triple-murder case. Grace was accused of not disclosing critical evidence (the existence of other suspects) as well as knowingly permitting a detective to testify falsely under oath.

 

The Georgia Supreme Court also reprimanded her for withholding evidence and for making improper statements in a 1997 arson and murder case. The court overturned the conviction in that case and found that Grace’s behavior “demonstrated her disregard of the notions of due process and fairness and was inexcusable.” She faced similar claims in other cases.
 

What happens next?. She gets her own show on CNN, and the network celebrates her as “one of television’s most respected legal analysts.” On TV, she displays the same style she had in the courtroom.

 

The Grace effect is not lost on aspiring young prosecutors who struggle to outdo one another as camera-ready, take-no-prisoners avengers of justice. Grace’s controversial career also shows how prosecutors can routinely push the envelope without fear of any professional consequences.
