Are you kidding me? Whats next? Why I killed my baby? These shows are getting out of hand, he went to prison because he was CONVICTED. Im sure his family appreciates the attention that HIS family is getting.

You know I remember this story, and I don't know about if this man is truely quilty or not, but he was found quilty of conspiracy to the fact and luring this man to the dealer, its the same as if he was the get away driver of a robbery, he is still an accessary of the crime. Having a reality/talk show may be good for her to help her get through the hurt. Im not sure if I would watch maybe the show on the 24th, then we will see.

I have watched Investigation DIscovery & have seen ads for this documentary series. Judging from what I have seen on ID & seen of the ads, that is what "Prison Wives" is: a DOCUMENTARY - NOT a reality show.
Channel 13 and its employees are showing both their ignorance and their bias to call this a reality show. Neither has a place in a respectable news broadcast. Just because something is non-fiction does not make it a reality show. Or does Channel 13 News classify itself as a reality show?

I like that justice is finally being seved and more stories like this should be exposed to show the inadequecies of the legal system and the govenment & many innocent people are being sent to jail........it is a disgrace.

I second BTDT's comment. This program is a documentary. This article is ignorant and so are most of the comments.

Get it right! It's not a reality show, it is just the "reality" of how it "really" is. Stop seeking viewers and readers by amping up what the documentary is about.

For the record:

"Prison Wives" is a documentary, an investigative, fact based, behind the scenes look at wives with an incarcerated spouse. I am but 1 of the 13 wives profiled. It is not my show, nor am I the star. I was NOT paid. If I was, then everyone would have been paid, including Dave Dean.

Lance was NOT charged with, or convicted of, hiring anyone.

Lance was NOT the key figure in the equation, Michael Hoffler was. Lance did not know Chris Drabik or Gregory Heckstall and therefore, had no motive or means to implement such a plan. If you removed Lance from the picture, as Dean suggests, NOTHING would have changed.

In addition:

Lance was convicted of conspiring with, and being hired by Hoffler, but Hoffler was not charged with, or convicted of conspiracy/murder for hire. By law, one CANNOT conspire with, or hire, oneself. His conviction of murder was overturned by the same court that denied Lance's
appeal of the same grounds.

Ms. Bleck's failure to accurately report what is on the record, in print, in black and white, simply validates our reasons for going public. My family has, once again, been victimized by the press.

Keep in mind there have been people in prison who were convicted, and thought to have been guilty, and served years... for crimes they were later found not to have done at all. I'm not saying that this guy is innocent - I don't know - but it may be the case. That being said, as a woman if I were married and believed my husband to be wrongly convicted, I would stand by him - even through his prison sentence. That's real love. However, for the women who are 'prison groupies' and meet and marry men in prison - well, I have my serious doubts about that. That just seems plain crazy.

Romans 3:23 read it! Do not post until you have lived it! There is NOT ONE RIGHTEOUS PERSON on this earth that has not sinned! There are many many innocent people incarcerated and many people WORKING for the judicial system THAT SHOULD BE incarcerated!

I just saw your episode and my heart absolutely breaks for you and your husband Pam. I saw the original air date and thought surely he is out by now. The only thing your husband was wrong for was drugs. A man with a clear addiction who says things solely to get high.....He did not pull the trigger so how do we let rapists, child molesters, animal beaters, etc. get away with less time? The man who plotted the murder is behind bars, the man who actually murdered the man is also behind bars so why is a man who was caught up on drugs doing life sentences for taking no ones life? He deserves his freedom.....this story makes me so angry and sad.:(
