Oxygen's New Crime Series IN DEFENSE OF Premieres Monday, June 25

On Monday, June 25, Oxygen will debut "In Defense Of", a headline-grabbing, psychologically thrilling crime series that explores the complex relationships between notorious criminals and the defense attorneys who represented them during their infamous trials.

The show examines the following legendary trials from a totally different perspective:

TIMOTHY MCVEIGH: IN DEFENSE OF (Series Premiere - Monday, June 25th at 9PM ET/PT): Defense attorneys, Chris Tritico and Stephen Jones, detail their time representing Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh in his capital murder trial and their efforts to spare him the death penalty.

WACO: CLIVE DOYLE: IN DEFENSE OF (Monday, July 2nd at 9PM ET/PT): Defense attorney, Dan Cogdell, recounts the WACO Siege, and the trial the federal government launched against his client, Clive Doyle, and the other surviving members of the controversial Branch Davidians.

JODI ARIAS: IN DEFENSE OF (Monday, July 9th at 9PM ET/PT): Court-ordered to represent Jodi Arias in her sensationalized capital murder trial, Kirk Nurmi recounts his six-year ordeal to defend her, and how it irrevocably altered the course of his life.

TED BUNDY: IN DEFENSE OF (Sunday, July 15th at 8PM ET/PT): Sought out by serial killer, Ted Bundy, in the 1970s, Criminal Defense Attorney, John Henry Browne delves into his personal and professional journey to defend one of the most notorious killers in history.

These top defense attorneys will share their very personal, sometimes controversial, version of events as they worked alongside the biggest "monsters" of our time. For many, it seems unthinkable that any ethical person would defend somebody accused of such a crime but each had the right to a fair trial and a defense attorney who would stand up and represent them, as is the right for every American citizen. In spite of the inconceivable consequences, these attorneys staunchly believe in the protection of rights for all Americans and the adversity they face has rarely been discussed...until now.
