Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Based on a true story, the made-for-TV For My Daughter's Honor concerns a torrid sexual relationship between 14-year-old Oklahoma high schooler Amy Dustin (Nicholle Tom) and the school's popular football coach Pete Nash (Gary Cole), who so far as the rest of the community is concerned is an above-reproach family man. Even allowing for the possibility that the affair was at first consensual, Nash becomes frighteningly possessive of Amy, so much so that she breaks her vow of secrecy and tells the authorities about Nash's infidelities. Unfortunately, there are few in town who are willing to take Amy's word against Nash--and those that do believe the story are convinced that Amy "came on" to the coach. With her daughter's reputation in ruins Amy's mother Betty Ann Dustin (Mary Kay Place) valiantly carries on a crusade to see that Nash is punished for his behavior and that justice is belatedly done. Based on Skip Hollandsworth's newspaper article "The Seduction of Jane Doe", For My Daughter's Honor (home video title: Indecent Seduction) made its CBS debut on November 20, 1995.
