Detectives Ceretta and Logan investigate when university student Andrea Fermi claims she was raped by two men at a frat party. The case is complicated however. Andrea had been drinking and was quite drunk when the incident occurred. She identifies the two boys who attacked her as fraternity brothers in the house where the party was held and where her boyfriend Gary is a pledge. Everyone in the fraternity clams up tight denying anything happened. Some even question whether Andrea was even at the party. They slowly build the case and ADA Stone thinks he has enough to get a conviction. He knows however that public sympathy is with the two boys and not with the victim. Written by garykmcd

A He said she said case
26 July 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode begins with a very intoxicated Noelle Parker coming out of a frat party into the street crying rape to the cops in a passing patrol car. In the future such a case would have gone to SVU squad, but this was in the early years of Law And Order and occasionally they did cases that did not involve homicide.

The accent here is on the prosecution and Michael Moriarty and Richard Brooks do not have an ideal client as Parker's got one free and easy history. In fact her own boyfriend after a quarrel may have been partially responsible for allowing defendants Danny Zorn and Mark Kiely to gang bang Parker. Forensic evidence indicates she had sex, but is not conclusive enough for rape.

It's a he said she said case the jury just did not like Parker, so they acquit the two Ivy League preppies charged. Michael Moriarty ends in apologizing to Parker for the system's failure. But I'm not sure if he really believed it and was just comforting her. It was a bad case to begin with and probably shouldn't have been prosecuted in the first place.
