A woman is killed by a homeless man. Later the man is caught and sent to prison. The woman's ex-husband thinks they should look into how the man who is clearly deranged, was allowed out. McCoy looks into it and learns the man was incarcerated and his condition was known but why was he released. McCoy learns that an HMO who runs the prison health care system chooses not to treat inmates who need expensive treatments. So McCoy decides to go after them.

Detective Green tells the two teenage girls that had the victim's credit card that they can be charged with a felony for using a stolen credit card. But that's only if they stole the card off the victim's body, in which case they'd be charged with criminal possession of stolen property in the fourth degree, a class E felony that usually carries probation but can also include a prison sentence of 1-4 years. However if they just found the credit card laying on the street or in a trash can all they could be charged with is unauthorized used of a credit/debit card, a class A misdemeanor which carries probation and possibly up to one year in jail.
