McMartin. Say the name and even today people think of one of the most unforgivable crimes, child molestation. Ten years after this groundbreaking legal case began, the names McMartin and Buckey still echo the hysteria created when a combination of events and personalities led to one of the most extraordinary criminal trials in American judicial history. The McMartin Preschools trial lasted six years and cost U.S. taxpayers in excess of 16 million. By the time it ended in deadlock and dismissal of all charges in 1990, the most widely court case of its time barely made the evening news. Emmy® Winner, Golden Globe® Winner
