Judge George Morton
Marta Torres
Carol Bonner


While Stark and Raina were pleading the death sentence for multiple murderer Paul Masters, they, the judge and audience are all taken hostage when a bailiff's gun is put at his own head by Stanley Davis, who claims to be unjustly convicted. Stark convinces Davis to exchange the youngest hostages for Davis' case files and food, the team will try to give him a revision of his latest store robbery with a gun death conviction, but the detective he blames for his conviction fights for his gun, causing the judge to get wounded badly. Casey and the others soon find the robbery investigation was a shambles, it may well have been two Latinos as Davis always maintained, a street gang. Masters tries everything possible to talk Davis out of following Stark's advice. When Stark must admit the ideal witness has just been killed, Davis looses confidence in him and lets Masters take a gun... Written by KGF Vissers
