Storyline

Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate a schoolyard shooting where a popular teacher, Amanda Kovac, was shot. She had recently been pivotal in getting three boys suspended for having sex in the school. One of the boys, Randy, says someone shot at them and they returned fire. They trace the shooter to another student, Sally Maxwell, but the boys say they have no idea who Sally is or why she would shoot at them. Sally claims the boys raped her older sister Valerie, who is mentally disabled with an IQ of 65, and decided to take matters into her own hands after school officials did nothing about it. The challenge for the prosecutors is to demonstrate that the boys knew of Valerie's disability before they had sex with her. Meanwhile, Ray Curtis has asked Lt. Van Buren for a transfer and Briscoe is still having deal with his own daughter Cathy's arrest. Written by garykmcd
