On Monday, September 10, 2012, Jacqueline shot three bullets into her husband's back. Her tormentor was dead. Jacqueline's story turns into the most highly mediatized court case in recent years. As she waits in prison, on trial for murder, she is forced to relive the drama and trauma she and her children endured. Jacqueline is so terrorized and helpless, she can't even begin to explain the life of shame she has been repressing for 47 years. Punished for her silence, she gets convicted and sentenced to 10 years in prison. But with the unfaltering support of her daughters, and the work of dedicated lawyers who fight tooth and nail on her behalf, Jacqueline manages to come out of silence and little by little, tell the story of her personal hell. The news media buzzes with controversy over her personality as the facts in her case lead us through endless twists and turns, charged with conflicting emotions. Will she be able to rise above her court conviction and win over public opinion? Written by Happy_Evil_Dude
