Storyline

The police pull out all the stops when an off-duty police officers is killed trying to stop an armed robbery at a liquor store. The perpetrators were unable to use their escape car - a delivery truck had boxed it in - they hijacked a cab and its driver, Mitchell Titus. They manage to arrest one of the armed robbers, Henry Harp and he offers to tell them where Titus is being held in return for a plea deal. ADA McCoy decides to go ahead with the deal after the police are unable to locate the kidnapped man. When they find Titus dead, they realize he was likely dead when Harp offered to make the deal. DA Schiff tells McCoy to throw out the deal and pursue murder charges but it's not going to be easy to convince a judge. Written by garykmcd

However after new legislation was passed in 2013 if law enforcement finds a unregistered firearm inside a person's residence they would be charged with criminal possession of a firearm, a class E felony.

Goofs

Detective Briscoe tells the mother of a suspect that if her son took an unlicensed, loaded handgun outside into a public area he could get charged with a class A felony and go to prison for seven years. This is not true, carrying a concealed, loaded handgun without a permit is criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree, a class C felony. It carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 3 1/2 years in prison and a maximum of 15 years. See more »
