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.

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.

Jerry Orbach and Benjamin Bratt catch an assault case where a fleeing Erik Jensen to escape a beating by a pair of brothers runs into the waiting arm of a beat cop and hits him. That earns him an arrest. These brothers think that Jensen who was a male nurse at a psychiatric center has taken advantage of their sister who is an inmate. Turns out he didn't do it.

But what Jensen did do was maybe worse, he rapes and impregnates a coma patient, a woman whose husband and child were killed in a car accident that left her that way.

But this gets even more bizarre. The woman's mother Cecilia Hart pays Jensen to impregnate her daughter to give them a grandson. Just who do we prosecute for what. Especially after the patient dies delivering a five week old premature daughter.

Parsing out the responsibility here would vex Solomon. A most interesting but bizarre Law And Order story.
