Detectives Briscoe and Logan investigate a claim by 19 year-old Julia Wood that she was raped by rock star C Square, whose real name is Clarence Carmichael. She says she and several of her dorm friends met the singer at a restaurant that day and he had offered her tickets to a concert. He then showed up at her dorm around midnight and she went with him to pick up the tickets at his hotel. The rape occurred in his room and she went down to the bar to have a couple of drinks before calling the police. Lt. Van Buren interviews the young woman and as far she is concerned, the girl is telling the truth. Carmichael doesn't deny having had sex with her but claims it was consensual. When ADA Kincaid fails to tell ADA Stone an important piece of information in her testimony, he's certain they will now lose the case and suggests that she seek employment elsewhere.

When Van Buren is talking to Julie she tells her when C-square forced her to have sex with him he committed a class A felony. In New York state rape is divided into three different degrees, none of them are a class A felony. Rape in the first degree is a class B felony, rape in the second degree is a class D felony and rape in the third degree is a class E felony. The only sex crimes in New York that are a class A felony are Predatory sexual assault and Predatory sexual assault of a child, both of which are a class A-2 felony. Predatory sexual assault does not apply here since it requires committing rape in the first degree against multiple people, or on the same person multiple times. See more »

This episode involves a woman who claims maybe a bit late that the sex she had with rock star Sebastian Roche was not consensual. Lucy Deakins who is not sure whether she wants to be a groupie or not and maybe if the sex was too rough she can still come out ahead.

This episode which in the next decade would have been on the sister program SVU shows how truly difficult rape of a celebrity is to prove. Not to say that Roche doesn't feel his status as rock star gives makes him entitled.

Deakins is not the greatest of victims either and she even perjures herself at one point. The case also causes discord between Michael Moriarty and Jill Hennessy at one point.

You won't know how this one will go right up to the end.
