Plot & Details
Annie Potts stars in the true story of Colorado housewife Julie Posey, whose sense of outrage goes into overdrive when her teenaged daughter is solicited online by a sexual predator. When her efforts to track down the pervert are thwarted, she briefly gives up -- only to be spurred forward with the encouragement of her husband when another little girl is killed by another Internet pedophile. Posing as a 14-year-old girl, Julie, working in concert with dedicated police detective Mike Harris (Michael O'Keefe), brings her daughter's would-be rapist out of the shadows, then embarks upon a worldwide crusade to stop other such pedophiles in their high-tech tracks. Directed by actress Joanna Kerns, the made-for-cable Defending Our Kids: The Julie Posey Story made its Lifetime network debut on July 21, 2003.
