Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Lauren Sivan, each one-hour episode of ABUSE OF POWER examines the twisted and true stories where people in positions of power and prominence took advantage of their authority to commit heinous acts of crime -- all stemming from their control and unyielding power. Through emotional testimonials, never-before-seen interviews and dramatic reenactments, this series reveals the sordid details of some of the most notorious cases of exploitation and highlight gripping firsthand accounts from the victims and their families who stop at nothing to get the justice they deserve. From following the salacious case of Warren Jeffs, the infamous school principal turned polygamist cult leader who found himself on the FBI's 10 Most Wanted List, to a formidable Atlanta Sheriff who used his authority to orchestrate murder after losing an election to the incoming Sheriff-elect, ABUSE OF POWER exposes just how far those in power are willing to go in order to cover up their transgressions, as well as what happens when the law finally catches up to them, as they face the harsh realization that money, position and privilege won't buy justice.
