Bill Kurtis examines the strange case of a Florida man murdered by seven of his "friends."
He was popular, athletic and a good student. At age 20, Bobby Kent seemed to be on the right path: he had graduated from high school, had a job and was trying to start his own business. He lived with his parents, and his best friend, Marty Puccio, lived just down the street.
But the All-American veneer hid the truth from outsiders' eyes. On one hot July night, Bobby headed out with Marty and six others for a night of partying. Bobby never came back. And it's no mystery what transpired: under questioning, all seven people who were with him confessed to banding together and killing him. AMERICAN JUSTICE® reveals what happened afterwards. All seven--including Marty and Bobby's ex-girlfriend, claimed that Bobby was a ruthless bully who they could not stop any other way. But is that enough to drive these "friends" to such an extreme solution? The jury didn't think so--all were convicted of either first or second degree murder.
PAYBACK FOR A BULLY features interviews with the prosecutor, defense attorneys and Bobby's ex-girlfriend.
