Trivia

Detective Briscoe makes a quip about how the only thing the FBI are going to be able to get Eugene Miller for is having employees who don't have green cards. It is true that this takes place before the United State's much stricter sex trafficking laws were enacted (under current law Miller would automatically face a sentence of life without the possibility of parole), however the feds will likely be able to get Eugene Miller for multiple counts of murder for the women who died in the shipping containers. Earlier it was stated that four of the women who were smuggled over to the US in the shipping container died from either dehydration or asphyxiation, and there were likely other women on previous trips who died as well. When Eugene Miller kept these women in a shipping container with no way to get access to fresh air, and with very little water, for months at a time he demonstrated what is known as a depraved indifference to human life. When he locked those women in that shipping container he knew the risks associated with doing so, that it created a grave risk of death for the women, but he recklessly disregarded that risk. Under both New York state and United States federal law that is known as depraved indifference murder, and it is charged as murder in the second-degree. So when New York is done prosecuting him for the kidnapping Miller would be prosecuted by the United States Attorney's office for at least four counts of second-degree murder, which equals four life sentences and him not being eligible for parole for 100 years.

A really sleazy victim
2 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

An Amerasian prostitute is found beaten and strangled to death and it turns out this woman was the last word in sleaze. I'm sure any number of people would like to have killed her as it turns out. Her father is grief stricken, but not all that much.

Among other things the deceased was into slavery for prostitution and had some recent Chinese imports living in a storage trailer with buckets for bodily waste disposal. Even the normally unflappable Jerry Orbach loses his cool with that discovery.

The woman also had tapes of her sessions presumably for sale at the right price and had several cops on the pad from the local precinct with those tapes as incriminating evidence.

She wouldn't miss computer sex either and in the end she's got a kid played by Ryan Patrick Bachand putting his family into deep ocean debt because he gets obsessed with her cyber images. We're never sure whether his decent working class father takes the rap for his son, but the jury is all in sympathy with V. Craig Heidenrech as the father.

One of those really tragic cases from the Law And Order series. The franchise has done stories with family members taking the rap for errant kids before, this is a good one of that kind.
