Air Date: 05 October 2009
Hayley McFarland: Emily Lightman
Zoe enlists Lightman to help with her client — a 22 year-old black star college football player who has been accused of statutory rape with a white 16 year-old girl. The case hits home for Lightman, who learns that his daughter Emily was friends with the group of girls who attend these college fraternity parties.
Through the course of their investigation, Lightman and Torres determine that Zoe’s client was set-up by the girl, whose friends leaked the video of the hookup. Lightman figures that the man did not know the girl was underage, noting that his face showed that he knew he shouldn’t find underage girls attractive.
Meanwhile, Foster and Loker travel to a religious compound to determine whether its claim of IRS exemption is valid. They believe the head of the compound is holding the women against their will. Foster facilitates the escape of one woman and her children, and faces the wrath of both Loker and the government.
At the end, the girl’s father believes the system is protecting the football player, and decides that someone has to pay. He shoots the prosecutor that dropped the charges against the football player, with whose death the episode ends.
