Did You Know?


The Matthew Shepard Act that ADA Mike Cutter mentions to the defendant, where he states he will see that the defendant is prosecuted in federal court as well, is referring to a bill passed by Congress on October 22, 2009 and signed into law by President Obama on October 28, 2009. The entire name of the bill is The Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr.Hate Crimes Prevention Act, and came about in response to the murders of Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. and expands the 1969 U.S. federal hare-crime law to include crimes motivated by a victim's actual or perceived gender, sexual orientation, or gender identity. This means that under this law that anyone involved in "gay bashing" can now face federal charges because it is a hate-crime, just like going after someone of the opposite race, religion, or disability.

Usually when the trial's over and the verdict's in that's a rap for the NY County DA's office. But it only starts here.

Robin Taylor is arrested, tried, and convicted of a bias homicide of a gay man and the only witness is his husband Cheyenne Jackson. No forensics, but right after the case is open the Innocence Project which is headed by Linus Roache's old law professor Amy Madigan.

With some over zealous work by some of her students Madigan gets the verdict set aside which burns Roache. Roache counters and the stakes keep getting raised. Motives are misinterpreted by all sides and justice is truly about to get lost in the process. Roache's own job gets in jeopardy.

Robin Taylor reveals in a stunning portrayal what a loathsome little creep he is and Madigan does become convinced that maybe she backed the wrong horse in this one. It's a close call for justice in this episode.
