Murder trials capture America’s attention like nothing else. They are the original reality TV. From gruesome murder scenes to the search for who is responsible, society is consumed with the process, as evident from the plethora of crime shows and podcasts that dominate streaming services. For lawyers, the murder trial is a crowning achievement of the profession. It provides an orderly process to hold those who commit these heinous acts responsible. But does the process always work? Do the innocent get convicted? Do the guilty go free?
Join Joel Oster for a riveting program as he examines three true crimes:
- Lincoln’s Last Murder Trial: State of Illinois v. Peachy Quinn Harrison
- Ethical Violations that Led to Murder: The Trial of Alex Murdaugh
- Cold Case Files: Prosecuting the Murder of David Harmon after 20 years
Joel will guide you through the grisly details of the murder scene, the twists and turns of the investigation, the decision to indict, the trial, and finally, the verdict. The defendants aren’t the only ones on trial here, but the legal system itself!
