World Television Premiere of Documentary Sin by Silence Oct. 17

In support of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Investigation Discovery presents the world television premiere of the award-winning documentary SIN BY SILENCE on Monday, October 17 at 8 PM ET/PT.

Over the last 25 years, women have represented the fastest growing prison population in America, with nearly 80 percent of those incarcerated being survivors of domestic violence as victims of rape, incest, forced prostitution, and other exploitation. In many cases, the abuse sparked their path toward prison.

With unprecedented access inside California’s oldest women’s prison, the California Institution for Women, SIN BY SILENCE is a gateway into the lives of women who are domestic violence’s worst-case scenarios: women who have killed their abusers and, due in part to state laws prohibiting legal defense from including evidence of battering, are now behind bars.
