12/03/2008 (10:00PM - 10:59PM) (Wednesday) : A SIMPLE MURDER CASE TURNS INTO A POLITICAL GAME FOR NEW YORK CITY'S D.A. OFFICE WHEN A REVERED SHERIFF BECOMES A POSSIBLE CONSPIRATOR IN A MURDER CASE.
A tourist from upstate New York has come to the city to settle his past, but his trip ends quickly when he is suspiciously murdered. When Detectives Bernard (Anthony Anderson) and Lupo (Jeremy Sisto) travel upstate to New York they find more to the story. A.D.A Michael Cutter (Linus Roache) and Detective Lupo (Sisto) believe the town's crowned king of drug busting is Sheriff John Burkhart (Guest Star Clancy Clown) and his deputies are involved in the murder but have no way to prove it when the case becomes a game of dirty politics. D.A. Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston) faces new competition when a new District Attorney is nominated for the election. Also stars Alana de la Garza and S. Epatha Merkerson.
