Storyline

Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the rape of 10 year-old Malika Richardson who was found in in a coma in the basement of her apartment. They trace Malika's movements to the library and then a pizza parlor and get a few sketches of men who were seen in the locations. They arrest Owen Stokes who was seen at several of the locations Malika visited on the day of the attack. DA Adam Sciff is up for election and makes it clear that he ants a conviction. As a result, Briscoe and Curtis coerce an admission of guilt from him. The only problem is that they have the wrong man. Briscoe meanwhile gets an offer from one of his informants to take care of the drug dealer who killed his daughter. Jamie decides the only way to keep custody of her daughter is to stop working full-time. Written by garykmcd

Justice takes a back seat
12 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

The man From U.N.C.L.E., Oscar-nominated Robert Vaughn (The Young Philadelphians) appears in this episode as a man with a big grudge against Adam Schiff (Steven Hill), who is fighting for his political life.

His Executive A.D.A (Sam Waterston) is facing ethics charges, and Jaime Ross (Carey Lowell) is testifying as she leaves the department. What will she say? Lt. Van Buren (S. Epatha Merkerson) gets the news in no uncertain terms that the brass wants her resignation for filing a lawsuit, and Lenny (Jerry Orbach) is debating on whether or not to make a deal with a con to kill the man who killed his daughter.

Among all this, there is a 10-year-old girl that is barely alive after being raped and everyone wants this case closed pronto.
