Twisted Justice: A night that changed three lives forever

On October 3, 1996, Richard DiGuglielmo stopped by his family’s deli in Dobb’s Ferry to help his father, who was recovering from a heart attack, with the pre-dinner rush. Due to tenants’ complaints about the lack of parking, Richard Sr., was protective of the small lot in front. So when Charles Campbell pulled into a spot reserved for “patrons only,” DiGuglielmo Sr. asked him to move to a nearby lot. Campbell refused. A fight ensued. DiGuglielmo says he tried to save his father’s life, but what happened next changed his life forever.

Deborah Feyerick examines the case against a former NYC transit officer who is sitting in prison - maybe for life - even after the trial that put him there was found by a judge to be full of holes. It is a story of anger, and a death that started over a parking space.

Was it murder or a miscarriage of justice?

Twisted Justice is one of two revealing investigations you won’t want to miss on CNN Presents this Saturday at 8:00 pm ET, reairing at 11:00 pm and 2:00 am.

Vermont battle could determine U.S. nuclear future

The Vermont Yankee Nuclear Plant near Brattleboro, VT is 39 years old, part of a generation of aging nuclear plants.

The plant is the same design as the notorious Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan and has a history of problems - water towers collapsing, pipes leaking radioactive material, to name a few.

Now the plant is at the center of a battle that could well shape America's nuclear future. The Vermont legislature has voted to shut down the plant, but the plant owners insist Vermont doesn't have the right to shut them down and has won approval from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to keep the plant going for another 20 years.

Will the people of Vermont have a say in their own nuclear future? CNN's Amber Lyon investigates.

Don't miss Nuclear Standoff, one of three in-depth stories in one riveting hour hosted by CNN's Randi Kaye and Dr. Sanjay Gupta.

CNN Presents premieres an all-new show this Saturday at 8pm ET, re-airing at 11:00 pm ET, 2:00 am ET and the same times on Sunday.

Palin will not seek presidential nomination

Sarah Palin, ending months of speculation, said Wednesday she will not run for president, either as a Republican or third-party candidate.

"This has been prayerfully considered," the former Alaska governor said on the Mark Levin radio program. "I can be on the right path without being a candidate."

Palin previously said she was still considering a run, but she faced an October 28 filing deadline for the first-in-the-nation primary in New Hampshire.

"It's a life-altering proposition and she really spent a lot of time talking with her family and being with her family," said a source close to the Palin family. "I think it's pretty straightforward."

Palin vaulted to political stardom when she was chosen as Republican Sen. John McCain's running mate in the 2008 presidential election. McCain was defeated by then-Sen. Barack Obama.

She has become a lightning rod for criticism in some circles, while others champion her conservative values. She has often been praised by GOP presidential hopefuls.

CNN’s Drew Griffin interviewed Gov. Sarah Palin during the 2008 presidential campaign for CNN Presents: “Sarah Palin Revealed.”

Born Addicted

A new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on prescription drug use in Florida has documented an alarming trend – a 265% jump in the rate of overdose deaths from the pain medication oxycodone since 2003. Prescription medicine overdoses now kill more Americans than all other illicit drugs combined.

In Florida, the addiction epidemic has entered a dangerous new phase – babies are being born addicted.

CNN's Amber Lyon went to Broward County to investigate the alarming jump in babies born to pill-using mothers. Catch this segment when it re-airs on CNN Presents this Saturday at 8:00 pm ET and 11:00 pm ET.
