Sin City Justice — There were more than a few people — mostly long-time watchers of Investigation Discovery — that thought they’d missed the season premiere of the show when it aired on June 8th, because they didn’t see it on during its normal time slot. It turns out it wasn’t missed it all — the show renamed itself “Sin City Justice” without much fanfare.
Nevertheless, if you’re looking for a show that focuses on the nitty-gritty of the Las Vegas criminal justice system, Sin City Justice (formerly Las Vegas Law) on the Investigation Discovery channel is perfect for you.
Sin City Justice
In Las Vegas, a city where nearly everything is a gamble, the Clark County District Attorney’s Office is as close to a sure thing as it gets. Led by District Attorney Steve Wolfson, this diverse and dedicated group of prosecutors rarely ever hears the words “Not Guilty” as they work tirelessly alongside law enforcement to pursue justice in their community. Investigation Discovery’s (ID) SIN CITY JUSTICE – formerly known as LAS VEGAS LAW – grants viewers exclusive access to D.A. Wolfson’s powerhouse team as they prepare and prosecute major criminal cases. Shot in cinéma vérité and featuring surveillance footage, police interrogation video, and photography never released before, the series immerses viewers in the high stakes, immensely dramatic environment that makes Vegas distinctive – and its crimes even more so.
With more than 60,000 cases a year, including high-profile homicides, robberies, gang-related crimes and assaults on the Strip, these aren’t stories pulled from a Hollywood script. They happen to real people just trying to live and let loose under the big lights of Sin City.
The next episode will air on June 22nd, and it’s called “An Uncontrollable Rage.” It was overkill when Robin Jenkins was violently stabbed to death by her fiancé, David Frostick. Robin’s family was devastated when they received the news, that turned to frustration as they waited seven years for justice. (For more details, check out the Las Vegas Review Journal’s coverage of the case.)
Meanwhile in another case, Nicholas Crystal and his girlfriend Nina Spiro use the ruse of her fake pregnancy to steal a man’s car, with Crystal nearly beating the man to death. Days later, Crystal violently attacks a second victim before he and Spiro are apprehended. With twists and turns, the DA’s office goes to trial on both cases.
