Episode Summary

Butchered Innocence, Pt. 1
Brother and sister teenage meth-heads Beau and Monique Maestas set out to take revenge on a duplicitous drug dealer. Armed with knives, they attacked the woman's two young daughters, killing one and leaving the other paralyzed for life. Beau pled guilty, shouldering blame for the stabbings in hopes of saving his sister from the most serious charges. Three years later, Beau's penalty hearing is about to begin, and Chief Deputy District Attorney David Schwartz and District Attorney David Roger are seeking the death penalty. With their client's life at stake, Beau's defense attorneys Tom Ericcson and Jim Oronos must persuade the jury to consider the case's mitigating circumstances, particularly the horrific childhood the Maestas children suffered with their abusive, drug-dealing mother and father, a convicted murderer. Monique's attorneys, Special Public Defenders David M. Schieck and Alzora Jackson, pay close attention to Beau's trial while preparing for their client's trial, which will immediately follow Beau's. Working with SPD Investigator Maribel Rosales and Monique's older sister, Jackson delves into the dark details of the Maestas' family's life.moreless
