Rumor and Innuendo
15 March 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode of Law And Order marked the first of many disagreements that Elizabeth Rohm had with policy at the DA's office. Specifically the intentions of Fred Dalton Thompson to seek the death penalty for three defendants caught on tape leaving the victim's apartment with her plasma TV. The female victim is lying upstairs with a 357 magnum round blowing a Holland Tunnel like hole in her chest.

The woman was living pretty comfortably with no visible means of support, a fact the defense exploits with innuendo about drug dealing. But when you've got video taken by passing tourists showing the defendants not only with her plasma TV, but one of them sporting a piece and their fingerprints all over the apartment you've got a slam dunk case for murder, maybe murder in the first.

There is a bit more to it with due diligence by Rohm she points that out to Thompson and Sam Waterston. But for that you see the episode.
