With a new and exclusive documentary airing every Tuesday night from 7 August, Crime + Investigation’s American Crime Stories season is a must for fans of entertainment with an edge.

Letourneau was arrested, sentenced to six months in a county jail and forbidden from making contact with Fualaau as part of a plea deal. But after the couple were caught together again, she was sent to prison for nearly eight years and made to register as a sex offender on her release.

 

Mary Kay speaks more candidly than ever in this compelling season premiere, describing her turbulent past, extensive legal problems and the media maelstrom surrounding their relationship. Whether you think you know the story or not, prepare to be blown away by the startling revelations in this explosive new take.
