Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the murder of Gilbert "Gilly" Keen, a retired cop who is found dead in his car, shot to death. The police suspect he may have been seeking the services of a prostitute, many of whom frequented the area. The investigation leads them to Hilary Colson and Sondra Benton, two suburban housewives who are working as call girls. They clearly have a case against Colson - her fingerprints were found in the car and her expensive lipstick on the body - but she claims Keen tried to force her to have sex and shot him with his own gun. ADA McCoy doesn't believe her and decides to prosecute.

A Glock is cocked simply by loading a round into the chamber and closing the slide, the only way to uncock it is by pulling the trigger. See more

You can sing "I Am Woman" loud as you want, but it won't do your client any good.
