Next Episode of Law & Order: Trial by Jury is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
In the criminal justice system, all defendants are innocent until proven guilty, either by confession, plea bargain, or trial by jury. This is one of those trials.
New York Assistant D.A. Tracey Kibre tackles the murder of an aspiring Broadway actress but has little evidence to prosecute the suspect -- an acclaimed but arrogant theater producer who smugly knows that the police have found no blood or even a body. Kibre is joined by her unflappable deputy A.D.A., Kelly Gaffney, as they work with Detectives Briscoe and Salazar to pursue physical evidence while the producer's attorney maneuvers to publicly portray the missing woman as promiscuous.
When a police officer is executed by a career criminal, A.D.A.s Kibre and Gaffney must overcome the fact that the accused was shot 41 times by police -- not to mention the charges of police corruption leveled by the charismatic and cunning defense attorney. Kibre's plea for justice veers suddenly when evidence indicates that the killer might be a federal agent's snitch while she also fears that the jury will sympathize when they see the bandaged man wheeled into court for his trial.
Assistant District Attorneys Kibre and Gaffney face the unpopular job of prosecuting a father accused of murdering a paroled child molester who had approached his daughter. The case takes on an added twist when they investigate why his self-appointed lawyer is so passionate about representing him. Later, new evidence about the pedophile's intentions is uncovered and District Attorney Branch knows the unwelcome publicity fallout for his department could hurt his chance at reelection.
After a young woman is raped and murdered, A.D.A.s Kibre and Gaffney are stymied by a triangle of suspects -- three friends who include a rich boy, a bad boy and the victim's ex-boyfriend Danny. As the prosecutors try to turn one against the other, they wonder who's playing whom. But when Danny seems the least likely to lie, Kibre wants to make a deal with him but she worries he might be manipulating the facts to gain the jury's sympathy.
Assistant District Attorneys Kibre and Gaffney prosecute a young nanny who is accused of murder for shaking an infant and bashing in her head -- but they run into a stone wall when the presiding judge intentionally blocks every move they make. After Kibre rejects Gaffney's desperate offer to resign to blunt the judge's irrational ire, they discover the tough defense attorney has coached his client well and intends to point the finger of murder elsewhere.
A.D.A. Kibre faces an obstacle course when she prosecutes a famous pro basketball player Jackson for killing his girlfriend but first she must get past the starstruck grand jury, a legion of fans, a savvy defense lawyer and the player's beautiful trophy wife Tiffany who's determined to hang on to what she's got. Although other women have been assaulted by the defendant, Kibre and Gaffney have a difficult time getting them to testify and new evidence that the victim had previously attempted suicide adds to the complexities of this case.
When a bank worker casually shoots a customer to death and wounds others, the seemingly mentally unstable man runs rings around an exasperated A.D.A. Kibre in court when he asks to defend himself and exploits his claim of extreme emotional distress due to the tragic death of his son. But Kibre and Gaffney must regain their footing before the jury through old-fashioned detective work which reveals critical holes in the murderer's persistent claim that he has been victimized by everyone.
A.D.A. Kibre prosecutes an elusive career criminal Lucas for the murder of a sleazy ex-cop and the shooting of a detective. As A.D.A. Kibre's office works with Detective Fontana, they discover their prime suspect might also be a producer of "snuff" pornography. When a sting goes bad and a shocking courtroom development cuts the legs from under her case, Kibre's career teeters on finding why the shootings were committed in the first place.
Against good advice, Kibre goes full out to re-try a convicted multiple murderer who is released due to falsified evidence -- but she is hardly helped by frightened and hinky witnesses while the manipulative suspect seems to counter her every move with his pricey lawyers. As her fragile case continues to dissolve, Kibre hopes for a break from a witness or forensic evidence -- and alienates partner Gaffney when she ponders contorting ethical rules if necessary.
Kibre is handed a political bombshell when she is asked to prosecute two police officers, Petro and Tolbert for their murky roles in the murder of a gay prisoner who was fatally sodomized with a police nightstick -- but she clashes with Detective Ravell who confronts the "the blue wall" in his search for truth. Under federal pressure for a conviction, a conscience-stricken Ravell causes more problems when he tries to protect one of the cops and his young family by withholding vital evidence.
A.D.A. Kibre works with Detectives Stabler and Benson to prosecute a serial rapist Gabriel whose trail of victims through the years has been whitewashed by his wealthy and protective mother Eleanor. Kibre must also overcome witness intimidation -- and even sees her crucial DNA evidence tossed out -- but the slippery suspect's lawyer has yet another surprise under his sleeve.
Prosecutors Kibre and Gaffney are stymied when a young man confesses to killing a transvestite upon discovering that the "she" was a "he" -- just before the suspect's controlling father also admits that he pummeled the victim to death in self-defense. Besides being whipsawed between two divergent confessions, the suspicious assistant D.A.s can't seem to turn one against the other, prompting a determined Kibre to reach into her legal bag of tricks to force the issue in court.
In the interests of justice, A.D.A.s Kibre and Gaffney may be forced to prosecute a doorman who's been publicly lionized as a hero after warding off -- and killing -- a homeless man after he attacked a frightened woman who lived in the building. However, even though the grateful victim thinks the dead man was her tenacious stalker, Kibre's case rests on convincing her that the would-be hero staged the event and actually is her true stalker.
