The Worst Crime is a feature documentary about mental illness and capital punishment

In July, 2002, Johnny Johnson was arrested and charged with the abduction and murder of 6-year-old Cassandra Williamson in Valley Park, Missouri. The effects of the crime continue to reverberate in the community. During the capital murder trial, a proceeding clouded by questions of mental illness and competency, a juror described the killing as “the worst possible crime.” This film seeks to answer the question: Does the worst possible crime deserve the worst possible punishment?

The Worst Crime is streaming on Amazon Prime, iTunes, and Vudu. It is available for exhibition through Swank Motion Pictures.
