Nicole was arrested after she confessed, falling into Cosgrove’s lies. Nicole had supporters outside the court. The judge set her bail at $1 million. Nolan Price approached the DA Jack McCoy and told him about Cosgrove’s lies. Moreover, Nolan urged the DA to try the case without a confession. Price called Cosgrove and grilled him over the confession. The judge halted the proceedings and asked the lawyers for a meeting in his chambers.
