A corrections officer's murder forces Goren and Eames to investigate the facility where he worked for a possible motive.
The murder of a Federal Corrections Officer recently hired by the New York City Fire Department causes Goren and Eames to investigate the prison where he worked to search for possible suspects. The investigation takes a shocking turn upon the discovery of the detention and torture of prisoners for whom there are no charges. After a nurse there is questioned, she complains to her boyfriend who then insists on speaking with Captain Deakins. Her boyfriend happens to be Detective Mike Logan, who was stationed on Staten Island after punching a homophobic city councilman many years ago. Together they find out that the guards on the prison block where the Corrections Officer worked were the torturers and murderers. Logan, Goren and the nurse are cornered, but Goren talks the guards down and they leave. The guards are arrested and the prisoners are released thanks to Carver using habeas corpus.
