Plot Synopsis

Some people evade justice for years, sometimes decades, by using their families, fake identification and even violence to avoid being captured. Their whole goal in life is to stay out of prison and live on the lam -- even as law enforcement uses all means necessary to capture them. And these perpetrators avoided prison. Well, for a while anyways. During prison interviews you'll find out how they ALMOST got away with their crimes -- where they found shelter, how they changed their identities, and how they stayed one step ahead of the law for many years. I (ALMOST) GOT AWAY WITH IT returned for its sixth season on Monday, June 24, 2013 at 9pm ET/PT on Investigation Discovery, with an episode chronicling the life of a man who escaped from jail twice following his arrest for killing his stepfather.
