In the Lifetime movie Mommy, I Didn’t Do It, high school teacher Mr. Gene Dutton has been found stabbed to death. When his wife accuses her husband’s 17-year-old student Julie Plainview (Paige Searcy) of having an affair with her husband, she becomes the prime suspect. It’s up to Julie’s mother Ellen Plainview (Danica McKellar) who has also been falsely accused of a crime (The Wrong Woman) to prove Julie’s innocence.
