Deputy DA Steele prosecutes Evan, a 14-year-old who murdered his older brother with a baseball bat, as an adult. But the teen's father takes a stance in court that could cost his son dearly.
Meanwhile, ADA Peluso looks into a case in which a high school athlete, Rashard, was arrested for a hate crime against a gay man who was blackmailing him. Rossi tries to convince a prostitute to testify in her own rape trial.
Elsewhere, a jealous Steele checks up on Rossi's romantic life; Finn preps for a blind date; and Peluso tries to help out a loan shark to whom he's in debt.
