Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders episode 3 synopsis – “With Lyle (Miles Gaston Villanueva) and Erik (Gus Halper) in custody for suspicion of murder, defense attorney Leslie Abramson (Edie Falco) works tirelessly alongside Jill Lansing (Julianne Nicholson) to understand the motive that could drive two young men to commit such a heinous crime. Meanwhile, the prosecution puts Judalon Smyth (Heather Graham) on the stand to make a case for releasing Dr. Oziel’s (Josh Charles) audio notes and tapes from his sessions with Lyle and Erik, despite standard doctor-patient privilege. The ensuing media circus – fueled by leaks from the District Attorney’s office – creates further complications for the defense and places the extended Menendez family at odds with one another.”
Basically, fame is a dangerous thing. It can change people, and that could happen for the family. Not only that, but fame could also be incredibly traumatic. It could lead to a wide array of unforeseen consequences. You also have to remember that the same goes for the counsel, as well. It’s not as though every single case that they tackle is anything like this in the slightest.
