Detectives Lennie Briscoe and Ed Green investigate the murder of a man by the name of Lonnie Jackson. As they look into the man's history, several facts simply don't add up. It begins to make sense when they figure out that the dead man had in fact stolen the real Lonnie Jackson's identity by using information he found on him on the Internet. He then proceeded to sell Lonnie's house. The real Lonnie is an 80 year-old African-American who worked hard all of his life and who suddenly finds himself homeless and is ashamed of the situation he now finds himself in. He's alienated from his son, Dr. Paul Jackson, who hires his father a lawyer who seeks to have Lonnie declared incompetent and therefore unable to be prosecuted. Written by
