Quotes

Jack McCoy: He pleads to murder two. No special circumstances, no death penalty. Twenty to life, and he serves it in an Israeli prison.
Nathan Becker: He must be under the impression they're winning.
A.D.A. Abbie Carmichael: That's a pretty high-stakes gamble if we are.
Brad Feldman: Twenty to life isn't exactly a generous offer.
A.D.A. Abbie Carmichael: Considering this is a murder for hire, I think it's exceedingly generous.

Possible spoilers for TWO episodes (11.5 and 13.11)
13 July 2010 | by (Red Bluff CA) – See all my reviews

I think Midnight Raider is confusing this episode of Law & Order with one that aired in season 13 (episode 11, "Chosen"). While each episode deals with a Jewish suspect and makes specific focus on Isreal, the subplots and issues surrounding each case are very different.

"Return" revolves around a murder-for-hire suspect claiming the right of return to Isreal in order to avoid being arrested and prosecuted in Manhattan and McCoy's efforts extradite, while "Chosen" deals with the robbery and murder of a bookie whose money is sent to the Isreali cause, a motive the defense lawyer is certain will play well to a jury he packed with Jewish citizens (which neither McCoy nor Southerlyn realized until it was too late).

Both are typical McCoy going to the extreme to make his case.
