Preston presided over the Liam Connors trial. Connors was charged with the murder of Antonio Montoya's parents and A.D.A. Alexandra Cabot. During the trial it became clear that Cabot was alive and well. Preston was relieved to see Cabot alive, and didn't charge Detectives Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler with making a false arrest. The two Detectives were already aware that the charges regarding Connors were false, because they knew Cabot was placed in Witness Protection Program. (SVU:"Ghost")
She also made a controversial condition for a million dollar bail once: Ella Christensen was accused of attempting to murder her newborn son, and Judge Preston ordered, as a condition for bail, that she not get pregnant again until trial. When Ella, after being asked if she could that, answered that she didn't know if she could, Judge Preston raised the bail to two-million. (SVU:"Taboo")
Judge Preston appeared in fourteen Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episodes.
