First Appearance "Spiraling Down"

Jake Stanton was a retired football player who suffered from dementia after suffering many concussions on the football field. He committed statutory rape with a 14-year-old girl named Vicki Harris, but he did not know her age.

He later committed suicide with a police officer's gun right outside the courtroom after being found not guilty due to dementia. He initially pointed the gun at his head, but then shot himself in the heart so that his brain would be preserved for autopsy, which had been identified in his trial as the only way to confirm that his concussions had caused chronic traumatic encephalopathy.
