Background information and notes
- This episode is based on the Spur Posse case. The posse was a group of high school boys from Lakewood, California, who used a point system to keep track of and compare their sexual conquests. The founder of the group chose the name "Spur Posse" when a favourite basketball player of theirs, David Robinson, was signed to the San Antonio Spurs. The group came to national attention on March 18, 1993, when the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department arrested a number of the members for various sexual crimes. Prosecutors later dropped all but one of the charges after determining most of the encounters were consensual, although with underage girls. They had the opportunity to prosecute the considerably older boys for statutory rape but declined to do so. (Spur Posse at Wikipedia)
- Goof: Barbara Spiegel is incorrectly credited as "Judge Harriet Doremus" when the nameplate shown by Barbara clearly says "Ellen Dreiser"
