Jenna's second client was referred for a psychological evaluation by the university disciplinary committee after "recklessly endangering" the welfare of others when one of his experiments in the chemistry lab exploded, producing a major fire. Very charming and personable, he denied any wrongdoing, stating that he wanted to cooperate fully.
