Reasonable Doubt is coming back for its third season, and it will look at questionable courtroom convictions. The new season will arrive next month.
Investigation Discovery revealed more about the return of the series in a press release. Check that out below.
“As claims of innocence ring in prison cells across America, families of prisoners can be tormented by the questionable guilt of their loved ones. Driven by a desire to get to the truth, retired homicide detective Chris Anderson and criminal defense attorney Fatima Silva team up once again for a third season of REASONABLE DOUBT to help families who are convinced that their loved ones were wrongfully convicted of murder. With their parallel expertise of the law, Chris Anderson and Fatima Silva know that the system doesn’t always get it right. Each episode of REASONABLE DOUBT begins with the loved ones of the convicted presenting evidence of their innocence. Anderson and Silva then set out on the intense process of re-examining a murder case, poring over evidence, interviewing witnesses and consulting experts previously overlooked by police or barred by the court. Each episode culminates with the gut-wrenching reveal to the family that either brings hope for an appeal, or clarity to accept the guilty verdict. With 10 powerful episodes examining whether justice was served, season three of REASONABLE DOUBT returns to Investigation Discovery on Tuesday, March 3 at 10/9c.
“I believe in the integrity of the judicial system, and I believe it should work for everyone,” said co-host Chris Anderson. “I have zero sympathy for those who seek to victimize the innocent, nor those who rip away at the fibers of true justice, which is why the work that we do on REASONABLE DOUBT is so important.”
“Our mission is clear: either justice for the prisoner or justice for the family,” said co-host, Fatima Silva. “These families have endured years of unanswered questions. This case has never been closed for them. We are here to bring them answers, sometimes they may not like them, but truth can be powerful closure.
When Kathy Middleton died from a gunshot in her own home, police had three options: it was an accident, suicide, or her husband, Ken, killed her. After a bizarre alibi where Ken claims he was polishing a gun and passed out only to awaken to find his wife dead with a gunshot wound, the police decide on option three. Ken is now serving life in prison, but his son and grandson are convinced that he was wrongfully convicted. In the season three premiere of REASONABLE DOUBT, airing on March 3 at 10/9c, Chris and Fatima set out to investigate their leads to see if they can offer hope to Ken’s family that he will ever walk through their door as a free man.
Other cases investigated this season include: the case of Celeste Beard, who didn’t pull the trigger on her husband, but who is locked up for life for being the mastermind behind it all; Michael Crump, a small-time drug dealer whose family insists isn’t capable of the murder for which he was put away; hero or cold-blooded murderer Claude Garrett, who claims he was trying to rescue his girlfriend from a fire, but a jury convicted him of setting it with a motive for murder; Tracy Lee Fortson, whose family claims she was framed for the murder of her boyfriend who was shot, stabbed, and encased in 800 pounds of cement; Mike Johnson who was convicted of killing his ex and her unborn baby with a pipe bomb when she opened a package at her door; and more.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of this series? Will you watch season three?
I absolutely love this show. Im interested in finding out about what happened to these convicts? The cases you decided to take?
LOVE LOVE THIS SHOW!!
I love your show i will watch every episode that’s ever produced I pretty much understand and agree with most of the investigators decisions I understand that good leads, good intentions etc alone probably won’t get someone a retrial I totally disagree with the show about the missing mother of three Ray Charles could easily see reasonable doubt in this case for a few reasons One of which is if she had been in a frame of mind to go out with someone she really didn’t trust or like and especially if she was doing drugs she wasn’t thinking clearly… Read more »
I watched the show that was aired on April 14, 2020 @ 10pm EST. Your episode left me with a lot of in a lot of unasked and unanswered questions. In short: if the murder victim was an informant for the police why want that information given to GBI by the local Sheriff/Police Department. The Special Agent stayed if he knew this information he would have look into it. So if not, why wasn’t this looked into further? Because of the lawsuit I would look further into this.
Love, love, love this show!
I live in southern Ontario and we are not getting the new season of Reasonable Doubt ? Does anyone know why ? Or when it will be on ?
Of all the ID/Discovery shows, this is the worst! So they rehash the crime & “point out some inconsistencies”. Pretty plenary. The episode in which the lady reconvened a “faux trial” was so ridiculous I had to turn it off. After raising “reasonable doubt” how do you think a jury would rule?
Don’t ever think that these 2 people will EVER help your loved ones. They are there to PRETEND to investigate the case. I will not watch anymore after watching tonight’s episode.
I love this show!! i agree with all of their findings especially the K.C G. story. I was worried this past week on March 3rd episode that they would say he has reasons for an appeal by the way the show was going but they didn”t! So I was happy! You cannot find the end of the story online on this show. You actually are on pins and needles anticipating the ending.
How do I get someone to review case
I was a private investigator and defended a client convicted of murder and sentenced to life I’m positive he’s NOT guilty. His codefendant testified on his behave along with a New Orleans police officer who said he (defendant) was with her when the admitted murderer ask him to come to Baton Rouge to help him move back to NOLA. He went back to BR and was arrested. Defendant is Brian Berry. How can I convince you to look into his case? I’ve lived with this for 18 years
