A crowd sourced project to find out how each case on Law & Order ended has finished and OverThinkingIt.com has the graph. That’s 450 episodes of the series, meaning 450 different cases. What’s odd is only about 33% of cases ended in plea bargains. If Law & Order actually ripped stories from the headlines, it’d be closer to 100%.
