  • A woman is strangled in front of a bakery and during investigation the police find an innocent man may have been sentenced.

    9.5
    I just can't understand why this episode has such a low ranking. Yes, it may be a bit unrealistic, but I still believe there are people out there, in the justice system or wherever who do care whether the justice is served or not. I can see the point of the Bronx D.A., but I sympathize with Nora Lewin and her view of things. It must have been a deception for her when she went with a guilty plea to Bronx and was told it doesn't change anything. But she continued the struggle for the innocent man sitting in a prison should it eventually destroy good relations between both D.A. offices. Even though justice for one man was redeemed with a ridiculous punishment of the actual murderer. It was right to remind it at the very end of the episode. A very good episode where an introductory murder investigation turned into a clash over jurisdiction and infallibility of the system.moreless
