You have to admire the guts of Law and Order producing an episode where John F. Kennedy cheated on his wife. Sure, the late President has been accused of wrongdoing before, but rarely will you see such a powerful man of history mocked on national television.
I would like to point out the legal loophole that Jay McIntyre would not serve anytime because of Connie Ruberosa and Michael Cutter lying to him about the DNA test in order to get a confession. Any defense attorney could easily get that case thrown out.
Outside of that this was a fairly good episode from the opening detective work down to the courtroom scenes.
