Sgt. Greevey and Det. Logan look for additional evidence in a rape case. Well-known reporter Monica Devries was raped but ADAs Stone and Robinette run into a road block when the physical evidence and DNA tests don't match any of the accused. Under normal circumstances, Stone would have simply put Devries on the stand but a previous conviction makes her a weak witness and less sympathetic to a jury. The detectives decides to restart the investigation from scratch and learn that there may have been another as yet unidentified attacker. Getting that person's identity will be key in getting a successful prosecution. Written by garykmcd
