Season 3: Episode 1 - A New Day

A New Day: ­A new, more confident Alicia takes center stage in defending a Muslim college student accused of assaulting a Jewish student during a campus brawl. At first, the case seems relatively easy â€" there’s no physical evidence linking their client to the crime, and the trumped up hate crime charge they’re fighting smacks of Peter trying to make a statement during his first week back in the job. When Kalinda finds a photo that seems to prove their client was elsewhere at the time the crime was committed, it appears that Lockhart/Gardner has secured the win. The trial takes a turn, however, when Cary and the prosecution reveal their plan: this new evidence may have exonerated Alicia’s client from the assault, but it makes him the primary suspect in a murder investigation.
