Detectives Briscoe and Logan investigate the death of Navy Lt. Tracy Hagen, who was found dead in her hotel room where a ship's crew was having a wild party following 6 weeks at sea. Using video one of the sailors took at the party, they question two officers one of whom, Ensign Evan Walters, admits being the last person with her before she died but has no memory of what might have happened. The Navy insists on taking jurisdiction in the case and Walters is quickly found guilty. ADAs Stone and Robinette find a number of holes in the Navy prosecution's case and continue their own investigation. When the medical examiner confirms that Hagen died of a slow brain hemorrhage and could have been injured 30 minutes before she died, the evidence points to another officer who had a previous incident with her.

An article 32 hearing is a proceeding under the United States Military Uniform Code of Justice, it's similar to a civilian court of law preliminary hearing. During an article 32 hearing a prosecutor from the JAG (Judge Advocate General) office goes before a military judge and requests permission to bring formal charges against an officer and convene a general court-martial. In order for the request to be granted the prosecutor has to show the judge he has sufficient evidence against the officer in question to warrant a court-martial. This proceeding is the military equivalent to a probable cause hearing in a civilian court where a District Attorney, or US Attorney depending on the venue, has to present evidence before a judge to show that there is probable cause to bind a defendant over for trial.

Vice Admiral Coty's hair appears to be regulation, the hair on the top of his head might be right at the length limit, but it certainly isn't a glaring violation, and the hair on the back and sides of his head are for sure regulation. Navy male grooming regulations state: "Keep hair neat, clean and well-groomed. Hair above the ears and around the neck shall be tapered from the lower natural hairline upwards at least 3/4 inch and outward not greater than 3/4 inch to blend with the hairstyle. ... The bulk of the hair shall not exceed approximately two inches." See more

Bunker spent 30 years defending the Constitution. I wonder if he ever read it.
