Detectives Lenny Briscoe and Ed Green investigate the death of a Chinese restaurant owner who was delivering a take out order. The delivery was to a basement apartment where a homeless man frequently slept at the bottom of the stairs. They track him down and while he's a suspect he tells the police that several teenagers had hassled him the night the delivery man was killed. As well, one of the teens had a key to the apartment. They trace it to Mitch Regan and several of his friends who had been using the vacant apartment as a place to hang out. They ordered the Chinese food with no intention of ever paying and McCoy wants to seek the death penalty against Regan, the only one who has reached the age of majority. DA Nora Lewin isn't comfortable given that the defendant is barely 18 years old and now has a major decision to make. Written by garykmcd

Law & Order: Teenage Wasteland
9 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I liked the part when atty. Edmund defending the boy from prison time. And when the judge denied the boy sentence, thats when the atty. asked the lawyer's for help to reduce his time in prison. They made a deal out of court. thats one of my favorite shows on Law & Order. I hope I can watch it again very soon, the atty. made the show very interesting to watch, by standing up for that teenage boy that he believe in, who he had confidence in as a defender. I miss watching it, I would like to watch more of it again, if possible instead of watching the same thing. I want to watch some more because, it makes the show more exciting. I like the way the atty handle the case in court and how he talk the lawyer to reduce his sentence term, and the boy agree to drop his sentence to the maximum.
