Greevy and Logan investigate the murder of a man who was shot and killed - including several bullets to the groin area. The dead man is Jose Urbano, a known drug dealer but Greevy is certain the crime is personal and not just a drug deal or some other altercation gone bad. Everyone in the close knit community has clammed up and they face downright hostility from the local parish priest, Father Torres. Ballistics points them to Anna Rivers who owned the gun used to kill Urbano but she claims it was stolen some weeks before. When they learn her granddaughter Lucy was recently raped, they arrest the girl's boyfriend Nicky Guzman. Executive ADA Stone thinks it's pretty straightforward but a high profile Texas lawyer, Chet Burton, is hired to defend Guzman and he's not open to compromise. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


J.D. Cannon, plays a Texas lawyer that uses western theatrics. He tells Stone that in 27 years of practicing law he has never lost a criminal case. 27 years earlier Cannon played Assistant District Attorney Ashley on The Defenders (1961). In another reversal of roles, Cannon was well known for playing New York Chief of Detectives Peter Clifford, who had to put up with the western antics of New Mexico Marshal Sam McCloud on McCloud (1970).

Paul Robinette: Aren't you always giving me the "you can't win every case" speech?
Ben Stone: I don't mind losing, Paul.
Paul Robinette: Could've fooled me.
Ben Stone: What bothers me is 12 law abiding citizens knowing a defendant is guilty and acquitting him anyway.
Paul Robinette: They were flim-flammed by the angle of self defense.
Ben Stone: They KNEW they were being flim-flammed and still acquitted. That is frightening.
