Jack McCoy: It was a good catch, Connie.
A.D.A. Connie Rubirosa: And what if Tory was a well-adjusted kid from a good family?
Jack McCoy: Not our facts. Hope you never have to try that case.
A.D.A. Connie Rubirosa: I take it you'll be recommending the minimum?

Not the easiest case
19 July 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The abduction of a young boy starts this Law And Order episode off as a meter maid spots a frightened kid in a car she's about to ticket. But that's only the beginning. When Jesse Martin and Milena Govich track the perpetrator to a quiet Queens neighborhood, they find no little kid and no adult perpetrator, but an older teen. Later on they find the little kid they were looking for dumped in a park. David Warshofsky is arrested for kidnapping and murder.

But of murder he's not guilty. The guilty party is Liam Aitken the teen who has lived with him approximately five years and is a missing persons case as well. Whereas a jury might have said life in prison without a possibility of parole for Warshofsky, for Aiken it's a different matter. Just the circumstances of the captivity and the sexual abuse would make him sympathetic even with Stockholm syndrome so clearly present.

Aiken gives a tightly controlled performance of a young teen with some deep issues. Warshofsky as the abductor also did a nice job.

Not the easiest case for Sam Waterston to try.
