    • Nitpick: During the course of the investigation of Jamie's claim of rape, the detectives find more and more evidence both forensic (wax on the back of the boys' shirts) and technical (the video of her willingly going into the bathroom) that support the boys' claim of consensual sex and discredits Jamie's claim of rape. Yet Casey states that she will have to continue with the case, regardless of all this exculpatory evidence because Jamie is sticking to her story. Not only is this legally untrue and likely to end in an acquittal, it actually opens up the possibility of lawsuits against the DA's office for malicious prosecution and possible legal sanctions (such as what happened with the Duke Lacrosse Rape Case DA Mike Nifong.)
