"Reasonable Doubts" -- When Annabeth prosecutes a man for killing his mother-in-law, his defense attorney creates a case against the man's wife by claiming she committed the murder in order to establish reasonable doubt, on a rebroadcast of CLOSE TO HOME, Friday, June 16 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Lukas Reiter wrote the episode which was directed by Andy Wolk. (Originally broadcast 3/3/06)
Bruce Davison ("Runaway Jury") reprises his role as defense attorney Doug Hellman. Alan Rachins ("LA Law") guest stars as Judge Meyers.
After a man is arrested for killing his mother-in-law, he confesses that he committed the crime. However, the judge throws out the defendant's testimony after his lawyer claims that he was not given legal counsel during his interrogation. When Annabeth uncovers a secret in the defendant's past which could explain why he killed his mother-in-law, the defense tries to deliberately mislead the jury into believing the defendant's wife committed the murder in order to create doubt.
