It’s become a cliché that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but for the Clark County District Attorney’s office, there’s nothing cliché about the crimes that affect their city. With more than 60,000 cases a year, including high-profile homicides, robberies, gang-related crimes and assaults on the Strip, these aren’t stories pulled from a Hollywood script. They happen to real people just trying to live and let loose under the big lights of Sin City. Investigation Discovery’s (ID) new series LAS VEGAS LAW offers exclusive access to District Attorney Steve Wolfson and his powerhouse team of prosecutors who work tirelessly alongside law enforcement officials to pursue justice in their community. Follow in real time as they assess the crime scene, interview victims and witnesses, strategize their case and ultimately chase a conviction in the courtroom. Shot in cinéma vérité and featuring surveillance footage and photography, the series immerses viewers in the high stakes, immensely dramatic environment that makes Vegas distinctive – and its crimes even more so.
