One of Lt. Tao's old cases comes up when Will Reichman's conviction for murdering his wife is overturned on appeal, the result of newly discovered blood evidence. Reichman had been convicted largely on the testimony of his 10-year-old daughter, Lydia, who said she saw him stab her mother. The new blood evidence shows there was another person in the house, as Reichman had claimed. Sharon and the team begin looking for the man identified by the defense as the killer, Benito Zapata. When they find a connection between that Zapata and Lydia, the likelihood of guilt reverts back to the husband, Will. He can't be tried again for his wife's murder, but if he killed Zapata...... Meanwhile, Rusty and Sharon have dinner with his biological father. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


According to legal experts, when a judge dismisses a case "with prejudice", that means this specific case is dismissed permanently once and for can't be brought back to court. So even if, later on, they discover physical evidence that links that person to the crime without question, it can never be taken back to court. The only exception to that is if the decision is appealed to a higher court. Just the opposite is if a case is dismissed "without prejudice". If the case is dismissed "without prejudice" it is not dismissed forever and can be can tried again. See more »
