Lazer, once a respected lawyer, had his license revoked after getting into a car accident years before while driving drunk, in which his wife was killed and left him a parapalegic. Lazer now spends his days teaching law at a small college in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Kimble travels to meet with Lazer and his assistant, Nancy Gilman, to enlist their help. To prove his theory, Lazer decides to conduct a mock trial with his students playing the prosecutor, defense lawyer, and jury in front of a live TV audience. While the mock trial is going on, Kimble becomes aware that Lazer is really putting himself on trial for his past misdeeds.

Kimble is devastated, but checks the story himself and believes it to be true. However, the private detective does some more checking and finds the one-armed man who died was incarcerated the night of Helen Kimble's murder, meaning Kimble can still find his wife's killer. Ellie, however, wants Kimble for herself and withholds this information and tells him that they should leave the county.
