After Dr. Elizabeth Olivet is assaulted by her gynecologist, Dr. Alexander J. Merritt, she turns to Detectives Cerreta and Logan to have him investigated. They certainly believe her story but getting evidence that would stand up in court is another thing. The one woman who made a similar claim against Merritt has serious psychological problem and would unlikely make a good witness. Olivet returns to Merritt but this time records their encounter, where he rapes her. With this evidence, ADA Stone feels he has a strong case but Olivet's close working relationship with the police dooms them. He does come up with another way to get evidence against the doctor.
