Law & Order - Season 9
(1998 – 1999)
Season 9 of Law & Order introduced Angie Harmon as ADA Abbie Carmichael, replacing the departed Jamie Ross (Carey Lowell), who left the district attorney's office to spend more time with her daughter. Compared to Ross, Carmichael's politics leaned much more conservative and less lenient on criminals (reflecting some of Harmon's own political leanings.) A Texas native, she also wasn't afraid to push for the death penalty and wasn't as territorial as her boss Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston) about punting jurisdiction to get harsher sentences for criminals. Season 9 was also the last for Benjamin Bratt, who left the show to concentrate on his film career, with Rey Curtis taking early retirement from the police force to support his wife, who had been suffering from multiple sclerosis since Season 7. Bratt would return as Curtis for a guest appearance in the 20th and final season.
"Sideshow" (S9E14) was the third and final two-part crossover the show had with fellow NBC stablemate Homicide: Life on the Street, which was in its final season. The episode "Empire" (S9E20) featured Julia Roberts as a guest star, who was arguably the biggest A-list movie star ever to appear on the series. (Her decision to appear no doubt had something to do with the fact that she was dating Benjamin Bratt at the time.)
The following weapons were used in Season 9 of the television series Law & Order:
Smith & Wesson Model 36
Detective Lennie Brisco (Jerry Orbach) is armed with a Smith & Wesson Model 36 revolver. Despite the NYPD having officially switched to automatic pistols on January 1st, 1994, older officers like Briscoe were grandfathered in and allowed to continue carrying revolvers.
