In this fifth episode of Doing Justice, Preet Bharara’s six-part adaptation of his bestselling book, Preet recounts the story of SueAnn, a sex worker who was brutally assaulted and robbed in her own home. SueAnn was almost denied her day in court -- until one SDNY prosecutor connected the dots and found the final piece of evidence to convict SueAnn's attacker.
NOTE: This episode contains graphic depictions of violence and sexual assault and may not be suitable for all listeners.
Check back next Wednesday for the final episode of the series, which will focus on the inspiring story of Rais Bhuiyan, who tried to save the man who shot him.
