“LOREDANA, ESQ.” Recap: Episode 4 (Dirty Talk and Stolen Identities)

Loredana may be an ace criminal defense attorney, but when it comes to her personal life, our gal rarely catches a break. While packing to leave town for some much-needed rest and relaxation with Robert and Rocco (gotta love the alliteration), LD gets a call from her friend Kerry Oandasan, who is in jail. To no one’s surprise, LD drops what she’s doing, cancels the trip, and rushes to jail to try to make sense of what‘s happened to her friend. After some discussion, LD, Booker and I realize this is going to occupy quite a block of time as Kerry is facing six felonies – two for identity theft, two for burglary and one each for forgery and credit card fraud. Plus, a $250K bail. All of this on a single mom of four with no priors who decided to go out shopping with her old friend AJ.
