Pam gains notoriety once the "Dateline" episode airs. As she squares off against Betsy's daughters in a civil suit for the insurance money, public opinion turns against her. Leah Askey finds her seat as District Attorney challenged by Mike Wood, whose campaign centers around Pam's connection to Betsy's hug.
The series is based on the 2011 hug of Betsy Faria that resulted in her husband Russ's conviction. He insisted he had not killed her, and his conviction was later overturned. This brutal crime set off a chain of events that would expose a diabolical scheme deeply involving Pam Hupp.
