Storyline

Mac is serving on a jury. The trial is a murder case involving a black man who's accused of shooting at a wealthy white couple killing the wife and injuring the husband. Some of the jury members feel as if the D.A. was pressured to bring charges because of all the media coverage especially from a TV journalist who's more interested in ratings. The jury's sequestered. But Mac feels that the crime scene was not covered so he sneaks out finds a woman who saw what happened and it wasn't the defendant she saw and shows him where he can find some evidence. He asks Pete to give it to the defense but when it's presented in court the prosecution and judge demand to know where it came from and Mac stands up. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com
