Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the severe beating of George Harding who is found under a bridge in Riverside Park. This is the second beating for Harding in less than a week but he refuses to cooperate with the investigation. Harding works as an attendant at a psychiatric hospital and one of the patients, Leslie Russo, told her brothers Joe and Frank Russo that he had raped her. They administered the beatings but the hospital says they conducted a thorough investigation and found no evidence that Leslie had been raped, let alone by Harding. When they learn there was a rape investigation at another hospital where Harding worked, they find that Wendy Singer, a comatose patient, is several months pregnant. They are now certain they can get a conviction against Harding but when ADA Jamie Ross catches Wendy's mother in several lies, she realizes there is more going on than meets the eye. Written by
Did You Know?
Detective Curtis clearly reads from an arrest report, "George Harding was collared in the Two-Three for assaulting a cop," Two-Three inferring the 23rd Precinct. When the detectives question the cops responsible for the arrest, they both wear collar links and insignia suggesting they were assigned to the 2-7, or the 27th Precinct, the precinct the detectives are assigned to.
