Did you see anything or hear anybody? I like you, and I know you want to cooperate, right? If anything, I was rooting for him when he got out. We need to search the premises. I'm proud to say today we did not fail. And she was really nice. Right, we're tracking down her fiancÃ©e, and we're going through her texts, we're going through her social media. It's a hell of a way to thank her.
Is the jury gonna buy this frame story? She leads with empathy and professionalism, all the while dealing with her difficult past - as a product of rape and a witness to her mother's grief, she can personally relate to each victim she tries to help. And she needed to solve her case. Listening to Barba berate Melanie, to force her walls down and for the truth to come out. She feels deeply and crushingly guilty for everything that has happened. She definitely liked to tease me. How difficult, but complex cases Cragen help lead the national team through the challenges they face every day. Listen, Buchanan is gonna turn this into you manipulating the kid to defend Fin.
So it would be helpful if you could identify anything that that may have belonged to Ashley. Good, now was it before or after you and Shyvon had sex? He was innocent last time. Catching him, they question why it is he has the knife used during the attack of Ashley, what he saw that night and his relationship to Ashley. Can I ask you something? Sean is seen and heard thanking everyone, accompanied by his victim, Melanie, at the time Kelli Williams who still holds some guilt over sending an innocent man to jail. So let's let's think about something else, maybe. We found a stash on his roof women's jewelry, underwear.
The guy we just got out of prison? Have him talk to the fiancÃ©e. I was there from midnight until closing. Thanks to you, he learned how to become a killer and a rapist. Fin was trying to help. And like the entire hearing has gone, positive then completely spun the other way by the defense attorney. As they continue their search, Charlie arrives home and immediately bolts.
I was at a bar Dakota Bar. You think he did it? Do you remember what time you heard them talking? My girl, the one I use the condoms with. No, actually, I need to keep you on you know, optics. I-I hope you're getting a discount, because your attorney isn't even trying. They enter to find Melanie inconsolable and her daughter, Ashley barely alive.
And when the victim isn't believed, when she goes through the invasive process of having a rape kit put together, and then it's stuck on a shelf somewhere, and then the rape kit is never, ever tested, we fail. Permission to treat the witness as hostile, Your Honor? I mean, why else would she be posing in front of a window like that? What I did to Sean was unforgivable. Uh, no, we're looking for it now, though. Don't say yes if you're not sure. Were you at Ashley's house last night? I-I I wasn't sure if I saw Sean leave before or after Shyvon and I had sex. All right, you just you let me know who you saw.
Is there where you hurt your hand? When was the last time you saw Ashley? Ashley Harper was raped and murdered last night. She didn't look at me like I was dirt, like everyone else. So given what's transpired, you'd obviously feel better about yourself, your reputation, the department's reputation, if Sean was found guilty of this crime, right? I do now he killed Ash. Sean told you to say that? What are you talking about? Now, if you're not gonna arrest me, then you need to leave, because I need to call Melanie. Okay, then we'll be taking Sean to be processed and arraigned. Then I went back to the bar. How well did you and your daughter know him? He was found innocent of that crime and released from prison a month ago.
Four solid hours at the bar? I've been searching through Ashley's social media. We have a strong case. I entered the defendant's apartment with several officers and we began a search. What if I'm wrong again? There he is having sex, goofing off. He was, like, threatening to break off the engagement. That's two blocks from Ashley's house. Traces of blood on one of his shoes that could be Ashley's, and then, of course, there's the ring.
Charlie admits to having done pot the night he witnessed Sean leaving the apartment, but worse, he pretty much admits to Rollins making him identify Sean. So Detective Rollins encouraged you to see Sean Roberts, then you made her happy by saying you had seen him at 1:15 exactly? I can't believe Ashley's really What, uh what happened? It takes a woman a long time to heal. All night, he was a shoulder for her to cry on. You have to let him go, now. Buchanan is putting words in this witness's mouth. He's never even committed a crime.
