Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Lauren Sivan, each one-hour episode of this series 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, this series 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. After the first three episodes with the title ABUSE OF POWER, this series took nearly a three-month break, returning Monday, July 16, 2018 at 8pm ET/PT on Oxygen with a new title: DEADLY POWER. In the summer premiere, "Diagnosis and Deception," hundreds of cancer patients discover that the place they should feel safe might be the most dangerous after all.
On Monday, August 20, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT, Oxygen premiered "Evil Rising in Utah," the season finale of DEADLY POWER. When a mother of eight is found unresponsive in her bathtub, her daughter fights to unmask the dark truth behind her death.
