Season 3

When a father, Luis Salazar (Benito Martinez), travels illegally from Mexico into the United States to search for his missing son, he discovers that modern servitude is thriving in the farmlands and agricultural communities.

Promised a job and a place to live, these laborers find themselves forced to live in abject poverty. Required to pay for their own food and other essentials, what little money they make is paid back to their employers, and because they will forever be in debt, they can never leave.

Undocumented workers aren't the only people targeted by this system. Coy Henson (Connor Jessup) is a young, white American male, estranged from his family and hopelessly addicted to drugs. When he happens upon farm crew chief Isaac Castillo (Richard Cabral), he takes the opportunity to get his life back on track.

But as he desperately tries to free himself of his addiction, he begins to become suspicious of Isaac's promises and aware of the injustices taking place on the farm.

Hesby Farms is a struggling tomato farm, forced to cut back on labour costs in order to be competitive in a market that continuously demands lower prices. Jeanette Hesby (Felicity Huffman), who married into the family that owns the farm, begins to learn the shocking truth behind their wealth. Her turmoil will eventually force her to make a moral decision which could put her at odds with the family.

Kimara Walters (Regina King) is a dedicated social worker who truly wants to help those in need. Unattached, single and in her forties, she desperately wants to have a baby and is finding it hard to get pregnant, even with the help of modern medicine.

When Kimara meets Shae (Ana Mulvoy-Ten), a 17-year-old prostitute, she wants to help her get out of the business, turn her life around and take a stand against her pimp.

Nicholas Coates (Timothy Hutton) owns a furniture supply business and is feeling the sting of buyers wanting quality items at discounted prices. At home, he finds himself in a marriage where memories of the past seem much more pleasant than the present.

His wife, Clair (Lili Taylor), decides that she wants to hire and provide a working visa for a Haitian woman, Gabrielle (Mickaëlle X. Bizet), to be their son's nanny. But darkness seems to embroil this family, and Gabrielle soon discovers that her employment comes with a steep price.

American Crime stars Felicity Huffman (Desperate Housewives, Transamerica) as Jeanette Hesby, Regina King (The Leftovers, Jerry Maguire) as Kimara Walters, Timothy Hutton (Ordinary People, Leverage) as Nicholas Coates, Lili Taylor (Mystic Pizza, Six Feet Under) as Claire Coates, Connor Jessup (Falling Skies) as Coy Henson, Richard Cabral as Isaac Castillo and Benito Martinez (The Shield) as Luis Salazar.

Recurring guest stars this season include Cherry Jones (24) as Laurie Ann Hesby, Janel Moloney (The West Wing) as Raelyn Boone, Dallas Roberts (Walk the Line) as Carson Hesby, Ana Mulvoy-Ten (House of Anubis) as Shae Reese, Clayton Cardenas as Diego Castillo, Sandra Oh (Grey's Anatomy) as Abby Tanaka, Mickaëlle X. Bizet as Gabriella Durand and Tim DeKay (White Collar) as JD Hesby.
