Sexual Consent forms
13 July 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode has Kim Shaw committing murder on the set of one of the entourage of Tim Peper who is one of the slimiest characters that was ever prosecuted on Law And Order. Since Shaw did the deed how is it that Peper is on trial?

This guy Peper is some piece of work. He's a male version of Paris Hilton who travels to various locations to get young woman to show their assets with a little recreational help. Of course he beds them and while in a vulnerable state has them sign sexual consent forms. Probably he figures that protects him as he cites Kobe Bryant's situation as his rationale.

But through a little bit of legal legerdemain Sam Waterston come up with a theory of law that Peper set up the situation that made Shaw shoot his friend and he's legally responsible. On that basis Peper is arrested.

The hubris on this guy is incredible and he's got a lawyer who is cut from the same cloth. Peper is convinced that his consent forms absolve him of all responsibility.

You have to see the way Waterston brings this piece of work down.
