Sexually abused by her father and raised by a sadistic mother, who attempted to kill her, Shari learned to survive by pretending that she came from the "perfect family." That is until attorney Karney stumbled onto her first legal case, defending a 3-year-old child who was being sexually abused by the father. Shari attempted to strangle him on the witness stand when she was cross-examining him and went to jail for contempt of court.
