Trivia

Peluso's offer to plead Shaun Brennan down to arson in the third degree with a sentence of 3-9 years is actually quite generous. By intentionally setting a fire for the purpose of making a profit (from the building's insurance) Brennan became guilty of arson in the first degree, which is a class A-I felony and carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison with the possibility of parole after 15 years. In addition he is also guilty of grand larceny in the second degree, a class C felony with a sentence of 3-1/2 to 15 years in prison, for fraudulently obtaining $50,000 from his life insurance company, in addition to however much money his business insurance paid for the building.

I don't want my father to think I'm a whore.
15 September 2008 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

An edgier version of the Law & Order franchise with outstanding talent like Eric Balfour, Jordan Bridges, Milena Govich ("Law & Order"), Stephanie March ("Law & Order: Special Victims Unit"), and Julianne Nicholson ("Law & Order: Criminal Intent").

I only watched this to see Debbie Rochon, but I must have blinked. I'm glad I did stay with it as it was an interesting twist on the franchise.

The show focused on the personal lives of the lawyers as much as it did on courtroom drama. All the cases had a similar theme in this episode: forgiveness. It was overtly apparent in some cases as it was in the primary rape case with a victim (Emma Myles) that was "dogging" when things got out of hand. I can not see Sam Waterson handling that.

Seeing how the personal lives of lawyers might affect their handling of the cases was refreshing and it is a shame this series didn't go longer.
