Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the death of a toddler who is found dead in his crib. The autopsy reveals that the child was poisoned with nicotine, a common ingredient in pesticide. The investigation quickly focuses on the child's 19 year-old British nanny. She clearly was not happy in her current job but the terms of her employment required her to stay for a full year or she would have to pay for her return home, something she could not do. ADA McCoy is convinced of her guilt but when they catch one of their own witnesses in a lie, he gives an opening to the defense lawyer to get a confession on the stand. Written by
