Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the death of Charles Tyner who was shot in what they believe was a mugging. Evidence at the scene suggests the shooter made him kneel before killing him. It turns out Tyner was a corrections officer and had recently transferred from a men's to a women's prison. The police initially think that an ex-con, Ricky Crimmons, may have been out from revenge. They're correct about the revenge part but it's Alice Simonelli, an inmate, who hired Luis Pacheco to kill him. Her defense is that Charlie Tyner raped her. She also wants Abbie, who prosecuted her original case, to be replaced.

A defendant who is on trial for a crime, while being incarcerated for a separate crime, is allowed to wear standard civilian clothing. In fact their attorney would insist on it because seeing the defendant wearing prison clothing would give the defendant a negative image and instantly cause the jury to become biased against the defendant.
