AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Sin City Justice is taking the court system to a whole new level bringing the prosecution system into living rooms on a weekly basis as the star and D.A. Steven Wolfson and his powerhouse team prepare major criminal cases.

Tune in for Thursday, June 29, 2017, for a pivotal twist in the current episode “Making a Statement,” as a victim is mauled by the system and prosecutors are worried.

Following Sin City Justice: A case is heating up when DNA reveals the identity of a rapist, but inconsistencies in the victim’s story cause the case to take several twists and turns in this week's episode of SIN CITY JUSTICE.  

When a woman is raped in a Vegas parking lot, she can’t identify her attacker. The case goes cold until a DNA hit reveals the attacker as Calvin Smock. The brave victim gains the courage to testify, but prosecutors worry about a few inconsistencies in her story in "Making a Statement" on Thursday, June 29 at 10/9c.  

SIN CITY JUSTICE, produced by MY Entertainment, grants viewers exclusive access to D.A. Steven Wolfson’s powerhouse team at the Clark County District Attorney's Office as they prepare and prosecute major criminal cases, covering different cases for each of the six episodes.

Shot in cinéma vérité and featuring surveillance footage, police interrogation video, and photography never released before, this uniquely formatted series allows viewers to see what the justice system is really like, in an unscripted behind-the-scenes manner.

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.

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 premiere episode “Rage Against the Machine,” on Thursday, June 8 at 10/9c, captures the courtroom drama that centered around one of Sin City’s hottest couples, adult film superstar Christy Mack and mixed martial artist Jon Koppenhaver, a.k.a. War Machine.

Their relationship blew up social media. Their passion was more intense than the neon on Las Vegas Boulevard. But after they broke up, War Machine brutally attacked and sexually assaulted Mack. As the case came to trial amidst a media circus and national headlines, SIN CITY JUSTICE’s cameras followed the prosecutors’ battle to convince a jury that Mack truly was a victim despite her past as an adult-film star.

His killers went on the run, selling the iPad for $80 along the way, but were finally apprehended. Now Chief Deputy District Attorneys Jacqueline Bluth and Agnes Lexis hope to keep co-defendants, Michael Solid and Jacob Dismont, behind bars for murder as Marcos’s large extended family witnesses the twists and turns in this dramatic trial.
