Storyline

Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the murder of Manny Erlich, a bail bondsman who was shot through the head while sitting at his desk. They learn he didn't usually work on Saturday nights but had received a call from someone and so went in to the office. They first suspect one of Erlich's clients, Oscar Liriano, who failed to show up in court. They apprehend Liriano and his girlfriend Josette tells them that his lawyer, Arvin Baker, was going to fix the case for him. A review of Baker's recent cases show an unusually large number of dismissals. A disgruntled former client confirms that he fixed cases but the question for the DAs office who in the legal justice system is taking the bribes. Written by garykmcd

Who prosecutes the prosecutors?
13 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Shadow" opens with the murder of a bail bondsman and the detectives quickly suspect one of his bail-jumpers, so they set a trap for him that's interesting enough. He's not the shooter but leads detectives and the DAs to realize that his defense attorney claims to be able to put in a "fix" and guarantee charges will be dismissed.

So this becomes one of a handful of L&Os to look at corruption within the DA's office, through the bizarre but apparently necessity of conducting a fake prosecution to see where the corruption is.

This episode wins with the legal half of the show. It's definitely not your normal episode and it's a bit of a stretch that we're asked to sort of like the D.A. in question since he's pals with Jamie, but it's still a good enough story.
