In 1981 a sexual encounter goes wrong, and a transvestite "sex worker" dies; a seaman becomes convicted on circumstantial evidence; 22 years later Harm meets him; an old file leads to prosecutorial misbehavior (because the prosecutor withheld exculpatory evidence from the defense). The prosecutor is now a member of the Congress. The PotUS grants a retrial; Sturgis prosecutes, and Harm defends; Harm presents evidence disproving that the defendant was guilty; the court releases the seaman and gives him a profound apology. Meanwhile Mac and Bud investigate a chief warrant officer with four wives and families; in a pretrial hearing Mac prosecutes, and Bud defends; the hearing officer refers the matter to a general court-martial. One of the four wives keeps her husband, and the other three divorce him; the government withdraws charges, but Mac promises the man an administrative discharge. Written by DocRushing
