Crime victim rights movie premiere in TucsonPosted: Updated:
TUCSON, Ariz. -- A movie premiered in Tucson Thursday night in honor of National Crime Victims Rights Week.
Heaven's rain tells the story of the murders of a former Oklahoma Senator's parents.
Brooks Douglass was just a boy when two burglaries broke in their home, raped his sister and killed his parents in front of them. As an adult Brooks became the youngest state senator in Oklahoma history and helped pass victims rights laws.
"I've been writing about the worst days of my life, it's hard, and it's not something I planned to do. I thought someday someone would make a movie based on the story,"
Throughout the years Brooks and his sister had to testify and re-testify to prevent the killers from getting out of prison.
His movie shows how hard the legal process is on crime victims.
