Judy's Son vs. the Sheriff
A true crime tale
In a mostly rural county in New York, the Sheriff and District Attorney were locked in an increasingly bitter power struggle. One fought for justice and the rule of law while the other struggled to hold onto tremendous political power earned through years of patronage, back slaps and corruption. The hapless victim of their war was an innocent personal trainer who spent over a year in jail for a crime the jury said never even happened. His only crime was being friends with a poltical rival- a rival with wildly famous mom. Read the true story of what happened and the media circus that followed.
