Law and Order episode: child asks for life; court argues over genetic cause of crime; xyy chromosome blamed?

Does anybody know which episode this is called? The defense lawyer argues that the child was insane by his xyy syndrome, which supposedly significantly increases aggression and crime in males; they alluded that it was basically a genetic form of sociopathy. In a twist of tragic irony, the child eventually pleads guilty, and desires either life or the death penalty, because he believes he has no future but criminality as a result of the trial.

As a secondary question, does anybody know of any legitimate ways to watch old Law and Order episodes?
