New A & E Show “The Accused” Features Local Attorneys Garth Best And Andrea Hayduk

Monday, May 11, 2020

Two Chattanooga attorneys, Garth Best and Andrea Hayduk will be featured in a new A & E show, “The Accused: Guilty or Innocent?”

The production team was in Chattanooga last fall filming Mr. Best and Ms. Hayduk, whose murder trial is receiving national attention. Both are known for their criminal defense work in Chattanooga.

The new show, “The Accused ", will offer an intimate account of what happens when someone is formally charged with a crime and sent to trial- all from the perspective of the accused, their legal team, and family of the accused. Each episode follows the accused person’s journey through the planning of their legal defense, trial, and ultimately the verdict.

The show will air on Tuesday at 10 p.m. on A & E.
