Storyline

Famous model and tabloid queen Ashley Jones finds her teenage son dead in her hospital room. The cause of death confirmed a brain tumor developed by ovarian cancer present in a bone replacement for his legs. The donor of the bone who carried the cancer died in a car crash. While her remains were to go to a funeral home for cremation, her body parts instead were sold to a clinic for money. A.D.A.'s Jack McCoy and Connie Rubirosa want to prosecute the doctor who harvested the bad tissue. Yet, his defense of being a public servant to those who could not afford operations proves hard to refute. Written by Anonymous

Overreach
4 June 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

ADA Jack McCoy took on one of the most popular defendants he ever prosecuted in this episode. Dr. Ben Bass is a popular doctor who does all kinds of transplant surgery. He's just not too careful in how he obtains body parts.

This all starts when the son of an Anna Nicole Smith type celebrity dies of a very strange type of cancer. He had a bone cancer, but the cells found in tissue in the autopsy were the type associated with Ovarian cancer. That gets the investigation started.

Mariel Hemingway does a fine job possibly channeling Anna Nicole herself in her performance.

In an age where going through it legally for millions of potential transplant patients are on long waiting lists and while this episode aired millions have no insurance, this doctor certainly cut some dangerous corners.

Bass was charged with murder and that was definitely an overreach. And the jury came back and said so.
