Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the murder of undergraduate Bridget Kaylin, who is found dead in her college's library. They learn from campus authorities that there have been a number of attacks on female students recently, so they check out an ex-boyfriend and several of her friends, but that leads to nothing. A credit-card receipt leads them to a posh restaurant, where one of the workers recognizes her photo and is convinced that she working as a high-class prostitute. The detectives set up a sting, and one of Bridget's classmates admits that several of them have been working as high-class call girls, organized by Shelley Taggert with the tacit approval - if not more - of her father, businessman Barry Taggert. After Taggart's daughter flees to Europe, ADA McCoy uses racketeering statutes against Taggert to force her to return. Written by garykmcd

Just working their way through college.
7 February 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The presence of a college rapist is a convenient blind and an excuse to throw off the investigation of a college coed at the fictional Hudson University of Law And Order. But not for long as Jerry Orbach and Benjamin Bratt zero in on a bunch of coeds who are involved in a prostitution ring. Just working their way through college.

But most definitely not for Cara Buono who makes the first of three appearances on Law And Order prime in different roles. Her father James Naughton is a widower who spoils his only daughter rotten. At the same time dad has show importing business and he uses the girls in his daughter's ring to model the imports and provide whatever other services the buyers want.

What Naughton does not do to shield his daughter from the consequences of her actions after she's arrested. It all ends badly for him, but for her the gravy train ride is really over.

You have to see this to know what I'm talking about.
