Premiered January 1983 Since January 1983, FRONTLINE has served as American public television's - PBS - flagship public affairs series.

- Program Description
In 1989, seven people from the tiny community of Edenton, North Carolina, were charged with hundreds of counts of sexual abuse against local children. Seven years, two trials, and millions of dollars later, all of the defendants in the Little Rascals day care case are free--at least temporarily. In a case so vigorously pursued by the criminal justice system and so deeply divisive for the people of Edenton, how is this possible? What does this case tell us about the American system of justice?
