A Japanese man accuses a US Naval officer (from a visiting aircraft carrier) of raping his teenage daughter. Harm, Mac, and Bud investigate; a rear admiral applies political pressure. The Japanese authorities indict the defendant, an ensign, take him into custody, and conduct a trial, which goes poorly; it goes even worse after the prosecutor catches the ensign in a lie. The Japanese court refuses to allow a US lawyer to defend him, and it provides a Japanese one who's not well qualified for a criminal defense. A major event sends the JAG himself to Japan. Eventually Harm takes part in a conversation which persuades a witness to step forward and explain what happened. Written by DocRushing
