American Justice: Witness Protection
Favored by Mafia informants and those seeking life-saving anonymity, the Federal Witness Protection Program is more than a name change. A&E documents the history of the secretive organization in American Justice: Witness Protection. Since its inception in 1970, the program has helped over 15,000 people find new identities. Most of those people are spouses and children of informants. But, in spite of novel surroundings, fresh friends, and sometimes a different appearance, the witnesses constantly live in fear. Nowadays, many who take advantage of the program have been involved with the drug trade. Their testimony averages an 85 percent conviction rate. Because of its success, the program's budget had expanded to 53 million dollars. Through interviews with witnesses themselves, A&E explores the greatest of second chances. ~ Sarah Ing, Rovi
