Watch Law & Order: Trial by Jury

Law & Order: Trial by Jury is a television show that focuses on the jury trials of the accused. While the show has a focus on the courtroom, there is also some attention paid to the information gathering of both the prosecution and the defense. Law & Order: Trial by Jury varies from many other crime shows because of its focus on the process of a jury trial. The show focuses closely on the processes of a trial such as selecting a jury, jury focus groups and other research, pretrial meetings with lawyers and judges as well as other scenes rarely seen in other procedural crime dramas.

Additionally, Trial by Jury shows the judges in as more complex characters. The same judges are shown several times and are given more character development behind the scenes of their trials.

Other main characters in the show include Arther Branch, the District Attorney, Tracey Kibre and Kelly Gaffney, both Assistant District Attorneys and Hector Salazar an investigator for the DA's office.

Law & Order: Trial by Jury Full Episode Guide

  • Andres Voychek (Lothaire Bluteau) is the doorman for an elegant upper Eastside building, and he's just saved a tenant from a homeless man who attacked her. The homeless man, Billy Ashford, was beaten and dies shortly thereafter, and Voychek is cuffed and mirandized. The victim, Abigail Phillips (Tristine Skyler), is appalled that her "hero" has been arrested. It looks like the kind of case where the bad guy is actually the good guy, so Voychek is released on his own recognizance, and defends his actions in front of the Grand Jury. Abigail also testifies, and claims Ashford had been stalking her for the last four months. But Ravell (Scott Cohen) discovers that the stalker calls to Abigail were from a pre-paid cell phone that matches the phone Voychek used to call 911, and they realize he is the stalker instead.

  • Prosecutors must find the one real murderer when father and son confess to killing a transvestite -- Prosecutors Kibre (Bebe Neuwirth) and Gaffney (Amy Carlson) are stymied when a young man (guest star Victor Rasuk) confesses to killing a transvestite upon discovering that the "she" was a "he" -- just before the suspect's controlling father (guest star Giancarlo Esposito) 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.

  • Will Kibre take desperate measures to re-convict a released killer? -- Against good advice, Kibre (Bebe Neuwirth) goes full out to re-try a convicted multiple murderer (guest star Gabriel Casseus) who is released due to falsified evidence -- but she is hardly helped by frightened and kinky witnesses while the manipulative suspect seems to counter her every move with his pricey lawyers.

Fred Dalton Thompson, Kirk Acevedo and Scott Cohen ("NYPD Blue") also star.
