In the Criminal Justice System the people are represented by two separate, yet equally important groups. The police who investigate crime and the District Attorneys who prosecute the offenders. These are their stories.
Crime faces a new foe as Fred Dalton Thompson joins the Law Order cast as brave DA Arthur Branch in the hard-hitting 13th season of Dick Wolf s legendary crime series. In 24 gut-wrenching cases, Branch brings a new tough-as-nails methodology to the team that proves formidable against the wrongdoers who maim, mutilate and murder their victims. But no one is invincible, and before the season is over, more than one of New York s finest will be personally impacted by crimes that rock the headlines. Jerry Orbach, Jesse L. Martin, S. Epatha Merkerson, Sam Waterston and Elisabeth Röhm return to TV s longest-running investigative drama in this compelling season that proves the light between good and evil has no final verdict.
