Episode Description

Melisa Schonfield was a successful psychotherapist and a respected pillar of her community, who had never been in trouble. But when her daughter’s boyfriend began abusing her daughter and young grandson, Melisa decided to take matters into her own hands, by hiring a hit man to dispose of the boyfriend. The hit man she attempted to hire turned out to be an undercover cop. Melisa spent more than three years in prison. "When my grandson was five days old, my daughter's boyfriend threatened to punch him if he didn't stop crying," she says. "He [the boyfriend] never got into trouble because he fooled the police." Melisa can share the details of her harrowing journey, and how the justice system failed her. She is the author of "Bitter or Better: The Melisa Schonfield Story."
