Jack Roper takes on the case of a homeowner, Andrew Turner, who killed an intruder who broke into his house. He has been charged with a hate crime as the intruder was Asian and the prosecution maintains it was a factor in the level of violence. Turner is believed to have been a member of a local group called Clean Up the Streets who swore he would kill any intruder who broke into his home. The defense thinks Turner was set up. Laurence Scammel is appalled that the CPS is pursuing the case and the stress takes its toll. Charlie and Annie find themselves on opposite sides of a case of someone who is suing for compensation after being attacked by a vicious dog. Having overheard a conversation between Al and Jack, Laura Scammell is now aware that Jack and her mother once slept together.
