Detectives Lupo and Bernard investigate the murder of paralegal Frank Dresner, who was run over by a car while picketing during the strike of public defenders. CCTV footage leads them to Ted Sanderson who was wrongfully convicted of murdering his wife and recently exonerated after 9 years in prison thanks to DNA evidence. There is little doubt that Sanderson was at the courthouse where Dresner was run over but when no one is available to represent him at his arraignment, the presiding judge orders ADA Connie Rubirosa to step across to the other side and represent him. When Sanderson insists that she continue as his attorney, she finds herself going up against ADA Michael Cutter and doing a very good job of it. When she discovers that the victim was a Sanderson's former friend who may have also had an affair with Sanderson's dead wife, she begins to wonder if she can advise her client with the impartiality that is needed.

You know, not that I'd ever admit it to her, but she eviscerated my case.
It's to be expected. Connie was trained by the best.
Well, if she ever decides to switch sides permanently, we're in big trouble.
