Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999–…): Season 9, Episode 3 - Impulsive - full transcript

When the parents of a teen age boy learns he has a sexually transmitted disease, they ask him how he got it. He says that he had sex with his teacher. So they call the police who talk to her and she in turn claims that the boy raped her. It becomes his word against her word, till they learn that she's the victim. So they arrest him and his lawyer mounts a defense claiming he was not responsible for his actions.

(male announcer)
IN THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM,

SEXUALLY BASED OFFENSES ARE
CONSIDERED ESPECIALLY HEINOUS.

IN NEW YORK CITY
THE DEDICATED DETECTIVES

WHO INVESTIGATE
THESE VICIOUS FELONIES

ARE MEMBERS OF AN ELITE SQUAD

KNOWN AS
THE SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT.

THESE ARE THEIR STORIES.

YOU HAVE TO TELL ME, SHANE.

LOOK, I CAN'T.

THIS IS NOT A COLD.
IT'S GONORRHEA.

WHOEVER GAVE THIS TO YOU COULD
SPREAD IT TO SOMEBODY ELSE.



ALL RIGHT,
BUT YOU WON'T TELL MY PARENTS?

I'M NOT GONNA TELL ANYONE
UNLESS YOU SAY IT'S OKAY.

BUT I DO HAVE TO TELL THE GIRL
THAT YOU SLEPT WITH.

LOOK, IT'S NOT A GIRL.

OKAY?
IT'S A WOMAN.

HOLDEN TELLS PHOEBE

HE WISHES HE COULD STAND
IN THAT FIELD OF RYE

AND CATCH THE CHILDREN
ABOUT TO FALL OFF A CLIFF.

ANYONE WANT TO TAKE A STAB
AT WHAT THAT MEANS?

MR. BLUTH?

UH, THAT HE WISHES SOMEONE
WAS THERE TO CATCH HIM?

NICE SAVE.

MRS. TRENT?
YES.

CAN WE SPEAK
TO YOU A MINUTE?



RYAN, WRITE THREE IMAGES

FROM HOLDEN'S DREAM
ON THE BOARD WHILE I'M OUTSIDE.

IF YOU CAN STAY AWAKE
LONG ENOUGH.

HOW CAN I HELP YOU?

DETECTIVES BENSON
AND STABLER.

PLEASE TURN AROUND,
FACE THE WALL,

AND PUT YOUR HANDS
BEHIND YOUR BACK.

I'M BEING ARRESTED?
FOR WHAT?

(Stabler)
STATUTORY RAPE.

I DIDN'T RAPE ANYONE!

YOU HAD SEX
WITH A 15-YEAR-OLD BOY.

THAT'S AGAINST THE LAW.

DID SHANE TELL YOU THAT?

NO, HIS PEDIATRICIAN CALLED
THE CHILD ABUSE HOTLINE

AFTER SHANE TOLD HIM
THAT YOU HAD SEDUCED HIM.

THAT'S NOT WHAT HAPPENED.

SHANE RAPED ME.

MS. TRENT'S MY ENGLISH TEACHER,
AND SHE CAME ON TO ME.

WE HAD SEX.
SHE MADE ME--

HE MADE ME DO IT.

I BEGGED HIM NOT TO,
BUT HE FORCED HIMSELF ON ME.

(Stabler)
WHEN?

ABOUT TWO MONTHS AGO.

(Stabler)
WHERE?

IN SHANE'S APARTMENT.

(Benson)
IN SHANE'S APARTMENT?
WHAT WERE YOU DOING THERE?

TUTORING HIM FOR HIS PSATs.

FOR MY PSATs.

I WANT TO GO TO ONE
OF THE IVIES.

I CALLED MRS. TRENT.

SHE SAID SHE COULD COME TUESDAYS
AFTER SCHOOL.

MY WIFE AND I BOTH WORK.
WE HAD NO IDEA WHAT HAPPENED.

HOW MANY TIMES DID YOU HAVE SEX
WITH YOUR TEACHER?

JUST ONCE.

WHERE'D SHE COME ON TO YOU?

UH, MY BEDROOM.

(Mrs. Trent)
HE SHUT THE DOOR.

HE STARTED STROKING MY FACE.

I TOLD HIM TO STOP,
BUT HE WOULDN'T.

(Shane)
SHE STARTED SAYING
ALL THIS WEIRD STUFF.

LIKE, YOU KNOW, HOW SHE CAN'T
STOP THINKING ABOUT ME.

AND HOW SHE'S IN LOVE WITH ME.

HE PINNED ME AGAINST THE WALL,
SO I COULDN'T GET AWAY.

THEN HE...HE
PULLED MY SKIRT DOWN.

THEN SHE WAS TOUCHING ME,
AND SHE WAS KISSING ME,

AND I JUST--
I COULDN'T HELP IT.

YOU KNOW, I--

I GOT EXCITED.

SARAH, DID YOU SAVE THE CLOTHES
THAT YOU WERE WEARING THAT DAY?

I THREW OUT THE TORN BLOUSE,
AND I WASHED EVERYTHING ELSE.

WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT
IF YOU'RE INNOCENT?

BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT
MY HUSBAND TO KNOW.

DO WE HAVE ANYTHING
BESIDES HIS WORD AGAINST HERS?

ONLY THAT SHE WAS FIRED
FROM HER LAST TEACHING JOB.

THE SCHOOL WOULDN'T BE
MORE SPECIFIC.

WE'RE GONNA NEED A SUBPOENA
FOR HER RECORDS.

WHAT ABOUT SHANE?

(Cragen)
HONOR STUDENT.

NO HISTORY OF ACTING OUT,
CLEAN RECORD,

NOT THE KIND OF KID
WHO SUDDENLY BECOMES A RAPIST.

(Novak)
DOESN'T LEAVE US
WITH A WHOLE LOT OF OPTIONS.

MR. AND MRS. MILLS, THIS IS
CAPTAIN CRAGEN, A.D.A. NOVAK.

(Jared)
DID SHE CONFESS?

WELL, SHE CLAIMS
SHANE RAPED HER.

NO. I SWEAR I DIDN'T.

SHE IS GOING
TO JAIL, RIGHT?

NOT TONIGHT.

WE DON'T HAVE ENOUGH EVIDENCE
TO ARRAIGN HER.

THAT WOMAN
TOOK ADVANTAGE OF HIM.

AND OUR BEST CHANCE
TO CONVICT HER IS

TO BUILD A STRONG CASE
BEFORE WE GO TO COURT.

THREE DAYS.

YOU ARREST HER,
OR WE'LL GO TO THE MEDIA

AND SAY THAT YOU LET
OUR BOY'S RAPIST GO FREE.

SHE'S GOOD.
WE CAN'T SHAKE HER.

(Cragen)
SHANE'S STICKING
TO HIS STORY TOO.

I DON'T SUPPOSE SARAH COPPED
TO HAVING GONORRHEA.

FROM WHAT SHE SAID.
NO WAY.

(Cragen)
CAN WE GET A COURT ORDER
TO TEST HER?

WELL, IF SHE'S BEEN TREATED,
THERE'S NO WAY

TO PROVE SHE EVER HAD IT.

UNLESS SHE HAS SOME LEFTOVER
ANTIBIOTICS IN HER APARTMENT.

WHICH WOULD AT LEAST TELL US
WHETHER OR NOT SHE'S LYING.

I'LL GET A COURT ORDER
IN THE MORNING.

ASK DOC WARNER
WHICH MEDS TO LOOK FOR.

BEDROOM'S CLEAN.
YOU GOT ANYTHING?

YEAH, SAMPLES OF AUGMENTIN.
THAT'S ON WARNER'S LIST.

AND SIX OF THESE.
NO LABELS.

WE'LL HAVE
THE LAB TEST IT.

HEY, YOU FINALLY
FINISHED FIXING THAT OUTLET?

WHO THE HELL ARE YOU?

POLICE, MR. TRENT.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?

EXECUTING A SEARCH WARRANT.

FOR WHAT?

YOU HAVEN'T SPOKEN
WITH YOUR WIFE?

NO.

IS SHE ALL RIGHT?
WHAT HAPPENED?

ONE OF HER STUDENTS
ACCUSED HER OF RAPE.

OKAY, WELL,
THE KID IS LYING.

ALL RIGHT, THERE IS NO WAY
THAT MY WIFE

WOULD HAVE SEX
WITH A STUDENT!

WAS SHE TAKING THESE
FOR GONORRHEA?

ARE YOU CRAZY?

NO, SHE HAS
A URINARY TRACT INFECTION.

LOOK, WHAT DID YOU DO?
DID YOU PUT HER IN JAIL?

WE RELEASED HER LAST NIGHT.
YOU HAVEN'T SEEN HER?

NO. I'M A FIREFIGHTER.

I'M JUST OFF A 48-HOUR TOUR.

SARAH SHOULD BE AT WORK.

THE SCHOOL SUSPENDED HER.

OH, MY GOD.

SHE DIDN'T PICK UP
WHEN I CALLED LAST NIGHT.

I JUST FIGURED
SHE WAS SLEEPING.

IF SHE TRIES
TO HURT HERSELF--

HAS SHE EVER ATTEMPTED SUICIDE?

ONCE.

SHE USED TO CUT HERSELF.
YOU KNOW, ON HER ARMS.

BEFORE WE GOT MARRIED,
SHE--

IT JUST WENT
STRAIGHT TO VOICEMAIL.

DID IT RING FIRST?

FOUR TIMES.

WELL, THEN HER PHONE'S STILL ON.
WE MAY BE ABLE TO TRACK HER.

WHAT'D YOU GET?

RUBEN MORALES,
MEET MR. MANNERS.

CHESTER LAKE,
MY NEW PARTNER.

(Morales)
YOU GAL IS SOMEWHERE IN THAT
BUILDING ACROSS THE STREET.

THAT'S THE BEST
YOU CAN DO?

WE JUST DROVE AROUND
FOR TWO HOURS

TRACKING DOWN
THAT CELL SIGNAL.

YEAH, AND THERE'S
A COUPLE HUNDRED OFFICES

IN THAT BUILDING.

HOW ARE WE GONNA KNOW
WHICH ONE?

WITH THIS GIZMO.

IT'S ACCURATE
TO WITHIN FIVE FEET.

SIGNALS COMING FROM DOWN THERE.

FAMILY PLANNING SERVICES?

YOU KNOW, THEY GIVE OUT
BIRTH CONTROL.

AND DO ABORTIONS.

CAN I HELP YOU?

WHERE'S SARAH TRENT?

I CAN'T GIVE OUT
PATIENT INFORMATION.

LOOK, LADY, UNLESS YOU WANT US
TO BUST IN THERE--

TRY IT AND I'LL HAVE OUR LAWYER
HERE IN TWO SECONDS.

HE'S RIGHT
DOWN THE HALL.
GREAT.

I'LL GO TELL HIM
YOU'RE OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE.

SHE CAN'T TALK
TO YOU NOW ANYWAY.

SHE'S IN SURGERY.

YOU'RE NOT COMING IN
WITHOUT A WARRANT.

IT'S EMPTY!

I'LL CHECK ACROSS THE HALL.

I GOT THIS ONE.

HEY, HAVE YOU SEEN
ANY JUDGES AROUND?

IT'S AN EMERGENCY.

I NEED SOMEONE
TO SIGN A WARRANT.

JUDGE BRADLEY.
HE JUST HEADED FOR THE ELEVATOR.

THANKS!
OLIVIA!

YOU GOT ONE?

THIS WAY.
IF WE CAN CATCH HIM.

JUDGE BRADLEY!

LATE FOR LUNCH,
MISS NOVAK?

WE NEED YOU TO SIGN THIS.
OATH.

I SWEAR TO TELL THE TRUTH,
THE WHOLE TRUTH,

AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH,
SO HELP ME GOD.

SARAH TRENT
COMMITTED STAT RAPE

WITH ONE OF HER STUDENTS.

SHE'S HAVING AN ABORTION
AS WE SPEAK.

WHY DO YOU NEED
THE PRODUCTS OF CONCEPTION?

FOR DNA
TO PROVE WHO THE FATHER IS.

THE WARRANT STATES BOTH PARTIES
ADMIT SEX TOOK PLACE.

THAT FETUS IS THE ONLY
PHYSICAL EVIDENCE OF A RAPE.

THE INFORMATION
ON THIS WARRANT IS TRUTHFUL?

IT IS.

BASED ON YOUR PERSONAL
KNOWLEDGE, DETECTIVE?

IT IS, YOUR HONOR.

IT BETTER BE.
[writing]

THANK YOU.

GO!

FINN?
WARRANT'S ON THE WAY.

(Stabler)
WHERE'S SARAH?

SHE GOT OUT OF SURGERY
ABOUT AN HOUR AGO.

SHE MUST STILL BE IN RECOVERY.

GET THAT
OVER TO THE ME's OFFICE.

HAVE WARNER RUSH
THE DNA.

SARAH TRENT.

YOU'RE UNDER ARREST
FOR TRYING TO HIDE EVIDENCE.

PLEASE...
DON'T TELL MY HUSBAND.

(Benson)
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT
TO REMAIN SILENT.

ANYTHING YOU SAY CAN
AND WILL BE USED

AGAINST YOU
IN A COURT OF LAW.

YOU HAVE THE RIGHT
TO AN ATTORNEY.

THAT'S NOT--
IF YOU CANNOT AFFORD ONE,
ONE WILL BE APPOINTED TO YOU.

YOU OKAY?

WE NEED A DOCTOR OVER HERE!

WHERE'S SARAH?

HOSPITAL CALLED
AND SAID SHE WAS UNCONSCIOUS.

DID SHE TRY
TO HURT HERSELF?

NO, SHE FAINTED.

FROM WHAT?

DOCTOR SAID SHE HAD
LOW BLOOD PRESSURE.

HOW DID YOU KNOW
THAT SARAH WAS HERE?

ABORTION?

SHE HAD AN ABORTION?

JIMMY.

THEY'RE LYING.
RIGHT?

SARAH, YOU WOULD NEVER HAVE
AN ABORTION.

I HAD TO.

YOU HAD TO?

YOU'RE GONNA TRY
TO JUSTIFY THIS!

I WAS RAPED.

IT DOESN'T MATTER, SARAH.

YOU KILLED A CHILD!

HEY, TAKE IT EASY.

JIMMY, DON'T!

PLEASE DON'T HURT HIM!
DON'T HURT HIM!

YOU, OKAY?

I GOT HIM.

I GOT HIM.

YOU HAD NO RIGHT.

I'M SORRY!
I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO.

SHE TOOK A LIFE,
AND YOU ARE ARRESTING ME.

I DON'T SEE HOW
THIS MAKES SENSE.

WELL, I'LL CLEAR
IT UP FOR YOU.

ASSAULTING A COP IS
AGAINST THE LAW.

ABORTION ISN'T.
WELL, IT SHOULD BE.

LISTEN TO ME NOW.
I'M CATHOLIC--

THEN YOU BELIEVE ABORTION
IS A SIN.

I BELIEVE I JUST SAW
YOUR WIFE UP THERE

BEGGING YOU FOR FORGIVENESS.

WE'VE BEEN TRYING
TO GET PREGNANT...

FOR SO LONG.

HOW CAN I FORGIVE HER?

MAYBE BY REALIZING
HOW DESPERATE

SHE HAD TO HAVE BEEN
TO DO WHAT SHE DID.

YOU KNOW
THAT KID RAPED HER.

NOW, LISTEN TO ME.

SARAH'S STILL IN TROUBLE.

SHE NEEDS YOU.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

SHOWING YOU FORGIVENESS.

GO TO YOUR WIFE.

LOOK, I'M SORRY.

I JUST LOST IT IN THERE.

I KNOW.

CHANGE OF HEART?

LOOK, HE'S GOT ENOUGH PROBLEMS
WITHOUT AN ASSAULT COLLAR.

SURE DOES.

WARNER JUST CALLED
WITH THE DNA RESULTS.

SHANE WAS
THE BABY'S FATHER.

IT DOESN'T PROVE ANYTHING.

NOW YOU DON'T THINK
SHE'S GUILTY?

LOOK, YOU SAW THE DESPERATION
ON HER FACE.

BECAUSE SHE KNEW
THAT IT WASN'T HER HUSBAND'S.

I JUST GOT A FISTFUL OF WHY
SHE WOULDN'T WANT TO TELL HIM.

THEN WHY DIDN'T
SHE GET AN ABORTION

BEFORE WE COLLARED HER?

AND WHAT WERE THOSE ANTIBIOTICS
DOING IN HER APARTMENT?

HE TOLD US.

THAT SHE HAD
A URINARY TRACT INFECTION.

DO YOU THINK SHE'D TELL HIM
IF SHE HAD GONORRHEA?

PROBABLY DIDN'T TELL HIM
WHY SHE WAS FIRED

FROM HER LAST JOB EITHER.

SEEMS SHE TOOK
MALE STUDENTS TO LUNCH

DESPITE WARNINGS TO STOP.

YOU CAME ALL THE WAY UP HERE
JUST TO TELL US THAT?

NO. TO SHOW YOU THESE.

SENT TO US ANONYMOUSLY.

STILL THINK
SHE'S INNOCENT?

DOCKET ENDING 709--
PEOPLE V. SARAH TRENT.

ONE COUNT EACH:
RAPE IN THE SECOND DEGREE

AND OBSTRUCTING
GOVERNMENTAL ADMINISTRATION.

RUSSELL HUNTER
FOR THE DEFENSE.

MY CLIENT PLEADS
NOT GUILTY.

AND FOR THE RECORD,
ISN'T RAPE TWO

A LITTLE OVER THE TOP HERE?

EXCUSE ME?

I MEAN, THIS BOY IS A VICTIM

ONLY IN THE STATUTORY SENSE,
ISN'T HE?

IF I HEARD RIGHT,
YOU JUST ADMITTED

YOUR CLIENT RAPED
A 15-YEAR-OLD STUDENT.

GET YOUR EARS CHECKED.

I'M SAYING NO ONE REPORTED
THIS SO-CALLED RAPE

UNTIL TWO MONTHS
AFTER THE FACT.

HIS DOCTOR'S THE ONE
WHO CALLED THE POLICE.

PROMPTING MRS. TRENT
TO DESTROY THE EVIDENCE

BY SECRETLY ABORTING HER FETUS.

ARE YOU SAYING MY CLIENT
SHOULD HAVE ASKED

THE GOVERNMENT'S PERMISSION

TO TERMINATE HER PREGNANCY?

LAST TIME I CHECKED ROE V. WADE
HASN'T BEEN OVERTURNED YET.

YOUR HONOR,
THE PEOPLE ARE HARDLY TRYING

TO DISPUTE MRS. TRENT'S RIGHT
TO OBTAIN AN ABORTION.

NEVERTHELESS, MISS NOVAK,

I AM DISMISSING THE COUNT

OF OBSTRUCTING GOVERNMENTAL
ADMINISTRATION.

I WILL HEAR YOUR APPLICATION
ON THE RAPE CHARGE.

MRS. TRENT IS NOT A FLIGHT RISK.

THE PEOPLE REQUEST
$50,000 BAIL.

WE OBJECT, YOUR HONOR.

AND ASK THAT THE WARRANT
FOR THE PRODUCTS

OF MY CLIENT'S CONCEPTION
BE SUPPRESSED.

I SIGNED THAT WARRANT MYSELF,
MR. HUNTER.

ON WHAT GROUNDS?

THAT THE SEIZURE
OF THE FETUS

VIOLATES HER
FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT

TO FREEDOM OF RELIGION.

AND, YOU, SIR, ARE VIOLATING
THE LIMITS OF MY PATIENCE.

COUNSEL, APPROACH.

THIS IS NOT
A CHINESE RESTAURANT, YOUNG MAN.

YOU DON'T PICK FROM COLUMN B,

IF YOUR COLUMN A DEFENSE
DOESN'T HOLD UP.

YOUR HONOR, SARAH TRENT
IS A DEVOUT CATHOLIC.

SHE BELIEVES LIFE
BEGINS AT CONCEPTION,

AND THAT EVEN A FETUS
HAS A SOUL.

IF SHE BELIEVES
THAT EVEN A FETUS HAS A SOUL,

THEN SHE MUST BELIEVE
THAT ABORTION IS MURDER.

THAT'S BETWEEN MY CLIENT
AND HER GOD.

BUT THE FACT REMAINS,
THE POLICE SEIZED THE FETUS

WITHOUT ASKING MY CLIENT
WHETHER SHE WANTED TO BURY IT,

ABROGATING
HER CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT

TO PRACTICE HER RELIGION.

YOUR HONOR, THIS IS RIDICULOUS.

THIS IS DANGEROUS GROUND,
MISS NOVAK.

I'M NOT RULING
WITHOUT SOME RESEARCH.

BUT IT WOULD HELP
IF I KNEW

WHETHER THE POLICE MADE
ANY EFFORT

TO FIND OUT IF MRS. TRENT WANTED
TO BURY HER FETUS.

OF COURSE WE DIDN'T ASK.
SHOULD WE HAVE?

ACCORDING
TO SARAH'S ATTORNEY, YES.

IF YOU'RE GONNA ABORT, THEN WHY
GET ALL RELIGIOUS AFTERWARDS?

IT'S ALL ABOUT BALANCE.

WHAT?
WHAT ARE YOU TALKIN' ABOUT?

YOUR SPIRIT LIVES IN EVERY PART
OF YOUR BODY.

NOW, IF YOU REMOVE
A SMALL PART OF THAT,

IT KNOCKS YOU OFF BALANCE.

MOHAWKS BELIEVE THE ONLY WAY

TO GET IT BACK IS TO GIVE
THE BODY PART A PROPER BURIAL.

I'VE HEARD OF CATHOLICS BURYING
A FETUS AFTER MISCARRIAGE.

THIS IS A LEGAL PLOY.

SARAH'S LAWYER IS TRYING
TO BURY HER CASE.

YEAH, WELL, HE'S GOT HIS WORK
CUT OUT FOR HIM.

DID YOU FIND SOMETHING OUT?
THE LAB DID.

THE STUFF IN THOSE AMPOULES

FROM SARAH'S APARTMENT
IS CALLED LUPRON.

IT'S USED
FOR IN-VITRO FERTILIZATION.

WE SUBPOENAED
THE TRENTS' MEDICAL RECORDS

FROM THEIR FERTILITY CLINIC.

HE'S THE REASON
THEY COULDN'T CONCEIVE.

SLOW SWIMMERS.

SO SARAH KNEW SHANE HAD
TO BE THE FATHER.

STILL DOESN'T PROVE WHICH ONE
OF THEM IS TELLING

THE TRUTH ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED.

YOU SAID SARAH
WAS A RECOVERING CUTTER?

ACCORDING TO HER HUSBAND,
YEAH.

IT'S A SYMPTOM OF BORDERLINE
PERSONALITY DISORDER.

MANY OF THE FEMALE TEACHERS
WHO'VE BEEN IN THE NEWS

FOR SEDUCING THEIR STUDENTS
EXHIBIT VARYING DEGREES OF BPD,

AND BORDERLINE PERSONALITIES
CAN'T TAKE REJECTION.

WHICH MEANS WHAT?

IT MEANS THAT IF SHE REALLY IS
IN LOVE WITH SHANE,

I DON'T THINK SHE'D BE ABLE
TO STAY AWAY FROM HIM.

SO LET'S SIT ON HER.
SEE WHERE SHE GOES.

LET'S COVER OUR ASSES.
WE'LL SIT ON BOTH OF 'EM.

SHANE WENT IN TWO HOURS AGO
AND HASN'T COME OUT SINCE.

AND NO SIGN OF ANYONE ELSE.

ANY ACTION THERE?

(Fin)
JUST A BUNCH OF MEDIA VULTURES
CIRCLING FOR SARAH.

WHILE SHE SNEAKS OUT
THROUGH THE BASEMENT OVER THERE.

(Fin)
IT'S THE WRONG HAIR COLOR.

(Lake)
IT'S A WIG.
THAT'S SARAH.

BELAY THAT LAST TRANSMISSION.

ELVIS JUST LEFT THE BUILDING.

(Benson)
CHECK IT OUT.

SHANE'S ON THE MOVE TOO.

ANY IDEA WHERE SARAH'S HEADED?

LOOKS LIKE SARAH'S TAKING
THE "A" TRAIN.

(Fin)
TWO TO ONE,
SHE'S HEADED TO THE SUBWAY.

I'M GONNA FOLLOW ON FOOT.

KID'S MAKING IT EASY.

HE JUST GO ON THE BUS.
WE'RE ON HIM.

IS SARAH GOING
UPTOWN OR DOWNTOWN?

FIN?
DO YOU HEAR ME?

RADIO MUST
NOT BE WORKING UNDERGROUND.

TEN FOUR,
SIT TIGHT TILL HE CALLS IN.

ROGER THAT.

AS LONG AS WE DON'T LOSE SHANE,
WE'RE ALL RIGHT.

(Lake)
YOU STILL ON SHANE?

JUST GETTING OFF THE BUS

AND HEADING INTO
THE LYDIA HOTEL.

(Lake)
THAT'S A COUPLE OF BLOCKS
FROM THE "A" TRAIN.

SHE MAY ALREADY BE THERE.

FIVE MINUTES?

LET'S SEE IF WE CAN CATCH THEM
IN THE ACT.

HEY, THE KID
WHO JUST CAME IN HERE.

WHAT ROOM?

WHAT KID?

(Benson)
THE 15-YEAR-OLD

WE'RE GONNA TEAR THIS PLACE
APART LOOKING FOR.

ROOM NUMBER.

211.

WAS A WOMAN WITH HIM?

SHE SHOWED UP FIRST.

WHAT?

PUT YOUR CLOTHES ON, SHANE.

SARAH, GET UP.

MY NAME'S FELICE.

SHANE'S WITH A PROSS.
SARAH'S NOT HERE.

YOU SHOULDN'T PLAY
WITH HOOKERS, SHANE.

THAT'S HOW YOU GET
THE BURN.

I WAS PUNK'D.

YOU'RE A RAPIST.

NO, I'M NOT.

DID YOU ENJOY PUTTING
YOUR TEACHER THROUGH HELL?

I ALREADY TOLD YOU.
I DIDN'T DO IT.

IT WAS MY FIRST TIME
WITH HIM.

HOW'D YOU TWO MEET?

HE EMAILED MY BOSS.

(Fin)
TWO TO ONE I GOT SARAH.

WHERE?

SHE'S GOING TO CHURCH.

I GUESS SHE WANTED TO AVOID

BEING RECOGNIZED
AT HER NEIGHBORHOOD PARISH.

WHERE'D SHANE FIND THE HOOKER?

(Benson)
ON THE INTERNET.

HE SAID HE WANTED A MASSAGE
BEFORE WE DID IT.

YOU KNOW, TO HELP HIM RELAX.
KID WAS A NERVOUS WRECK.

HE ASK YOU
FOR ANYTHING ELSE?

HE WANTED ME TO FIGHT HIM,

YOU KNOW,
LIKE HE WAS FORCING ME.

HE SAID HE SAW IT
ON SOME RUSSIAN WEBSITE.

HE KEPT SAYING
HE WAS SORRY.

THAT YOUR FIRST TIME
WITH SHANE?

WHAT'S GOING ON HERE?

(Fin)
WE'VE BEEN PULLING 'EM IN
SINCE LAST NIGHT.

SO SHANE SLEPT
WITH ALL THESE WOMEN?

A BUNCH OF TIMES
WITH SOME.

EXCUSE ME, MONIQUE,
WHERE YOU THINK YOU'RE GOING?

(Stabler)
HEY, CASEY.

CHECK THIS OUT.

GO AHEAD.

I GAVE THE KID THE CLAP,
BUT I TOLD HIM

TO GET HIMSELF CHECKED.

WELL, AREN'T YOU THE POSTER GIRL
FOR PUBLIC HEALTH?

THERE'S MORE.
JUST WAIT.

LIV, LISTEN TO THIS.
GO ON.

LAST TIME I SCREWED SHANE,
HE WAS BRAGGING

THAT HE DID HIS TEACHER.

RIPPING HER CLOTHES OFF,
JUST HOW HE PRACTICED WITH ME.

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT.

SARAH TRENT WASN'T FIRED
FROM HER LAST JOB

FOR TAKING BOYS TO LUNCH.

SHE WAS THEIR FACULTY ADVISOR.
IT WAS LEGIT.

SO WHAT HAPPENED?

THE PRINCIPAL
WAS PUTTING MOVES ON HER.

HE DID A PREEMPTIVE STRIKE
SO SHE WOULDN'T OUT HIM.

SAME THING SHANE DID
WHEN HE ACCUSED SARAH OF RAPE.

BIBI HERE JUST TOLD US

WHERE SHANE GOT
THE IDEA FOR RAPE.

IT'S ENOUGH FOR ME.

I'LL DISMISS THE CHARGES
AGAINST HER.

YOU GO COLLAR SHANE.

SHANE MILLS
IS NOT A RAPIST.

NEW CLIENT, SOPHIE?

HIS PARENTS RETAINED ME
LAST NIGHT.

THEY'RE NOT KIDDING WHEN
THEY SAY HE'S GOT A PROBLEM.

HE'S A BONA FIDE SEX ADDICT.

WHICH IN NO WAY EXCUSES
WHAT HE DID TO HIS TEACHER.

IT WILL WHEN I PROVE THAT HE WAS
POWERLESS TO STOP HIMSELF

FROM ATTACKING HER.

ALL THAT MATTERS IS WHETHER
SHANE MILLS KNEW

RAPING SARAH TRENT WAS WRONG.

YOUR HONOR, THE FILTH
THAT THE POLICE FOUND

ON THE DEFENDANT'S COMPUTER
WOULD MAKE LARRY FLYNT BLUSH.

THIS KID SPENDS MOST
OF HIS FREE TIME LOOKING AT PORN

ON THE INTERNET.

EVERY ADOLESCENT BOY
IN AMERICA

LOOKS AT INTERNET PORN.

BUT I WOULD VENTURE
THAT MOST OF THEM HAVEN'T SLEPT

WITH A COUPLE
OF DOZEN HOOKERS.

EXCESSIVE AS THAT IS,
MISS DEVERE,

IT'S HARDLY GROUNDS
FOR AN INSANITY PLEA.

WE'RE NOT PLEADING INSANITY.

MY CLIENT ACTED
UNDER DURESS.

NOBODY PUT A GUN
TO HIS HEAD.

THE GUN WAS
INSIDE HIS HEAD

IN THE FORM
OF UNCONTROLLABLE IMPULSES

THAT THE NEUROTRANSMITTERS IN
HIS BRAIN WON'T LET HIM RESIST.

YOUR HONOR, IF YOU LET HER
USE THIS DEFENSE,

YOU'RE OPENING THE DOOR
FOR EVERY PEDOPHILE

CAUGHT RAPING A CHILD

TO CLAIM HIS BRAIN
MADE HIM DO IT.

SHANE MILLS IS NOT A PEDOPHILE.
HIS RECORD IS CLEAN.

HE'S A STRAIGHT-A STUDENT.
THIS IS A GOOD KID.

WHO RAPED HIS TEACHER,
AND THEN ACCUSED HER

OF SEDUCING HIM
TO COVER IT UP.

WHICH IS WHY NEITHER OF US WANTS
A CONVICTION OVERTURNED

ON APPEAL.

YOU HAVE YOUR DEFENSE,
MISS DEVERE.

I'D BE HAPPY
FOR THE PEOPLE'S EXPERT

TO GIVE HIS OWN PSYCHIATRIC
EXAMINATION OF MY CLIENT.

I WAS ON THE COMPUTER ONE DAY
WHEN I WAS TEN.

THIS POP-UP APPEARED,
AND IT WAS A VIDEO

OF THIS GUY AND GIRL SCREWING.

CAN YOU REMEMBER
HOW THAT MADE YOU FEEL?

YEAH, I GOT EXCITED.

YOU KNOW, I WANTED
TO DO WHAT THEY WERE DOING.

DO YOU THINK THAT'S WHY
YOU SPEND SO MUCH TIME

LOOKING AT PORN
ON THE INTERNET?

YEAH.
I MEAN, IT'S AMAZING.

EVERY DAY I JUST--
I FIND SOMETHING NEW.

SHANE'S RESPONSES INDICATED

AN EARLY PREDISPOSITION
TOWARDS SEX ADDICTION.

SO I DREW BLOOD, AND I RAN
A SERIES OF GENETIC TESTS.

THE RESULTS SHOWED SHANE
HAS EXTRA COPIES

OF HIS DRD4 GENE,

WHICH HELPS CONTROL
ONE'S SEX DRIVE.

AND A DEFECT IN HIS 5-HT T GENE,

WHICH REGULATES
THE TRANSPORT OF SEROTONIN.

HOW MANY TIMES A DAY
DO YOU MASTURBATE?

I DON'T KNOW.
FIVE, SIX, SOMETIMES MORE.

EVEN WHEN YOU'RE
AT SCHOOL?

YEAH, IF I'M IN CLASS,
AND I GET THE URGE,

I JUST ASK TO GO
TO THE BATHROOM.

WE DID IMAGING STUDIES
ON SHANE'S BRAIN

USING FUNCTIONAL MRI.

HIS NUCLEUS ACCUMBENS,

THE ADDICTION AND PLEASURE
CENTER OF THE BRAIN,

AND HIS AMYGDALA
AND HYPOTHALAMUS,

ASSOCIATED WITH AGGRESSION
AND SEX DRIVE,

ALL SHOWED HIGHER THAN NORMAL

BASELINE LEVELS
OF METABOLIC ACTIVITY.

WHEN WE SHOWED HIM IMAGES AS
TAME AS WOMEN IN BATHING SUITS,

THOSE SAME AREAS
OF HIS BRAIN LIT UP

LIKE FIREWORKS
ON THE FOURTH OF JULY.

HOW DID YOU FEEL WHEN YOU
FOUND OUT YOU HAD GONORRHEA?

I WAS SCARED.

SCARED ENOUGH TO STOP HAVING SEX
WITH PROSTITUTES?

I TRIED. I COULDN'T.

ENGAGING IN HIGH-RISK BEHAVIOR
AND KNOWING THE DANGER

IS THE ROSETTA STONE
OF ADDICTION.

AND SHANE'S IS
WAY OUT OF CONTROL.

(Novak)
IS IT POSSIBLE IT CAUSED HIM
TO RAPE SARAH TRENT?

(Huang)
WELL, IT WOULD BE RARE.
I'VE NEVER SEEN IT.

BUT YES, IT IS POSSIBLE.

SHOULD SHANE
BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE?

YES.

OR YOU'D HAVE TO EXCUSE ANYONE
WHO COMMITS A CRIME

AND KNOWS THAT IT'S WRONG.

THANK YOU.
NOTHING FURTHER.

DOCTOR, WHAT ROLE
DOES THE BRAIN'S

PREFRONTAL CORTEX
PLAY IN BEHAVIOR?

IT'S ASSOCIATED WITH DECISION
MAKING AND IMPULSE CONTROL.

AND THAT PART OF THE BRAIN

IS FULLY DEVELOPED
AT WHAT POINT IN LIFE?

ABOUT AGE 20.

SO A 15-YEAR-OLD LIKE SHANE

WOULDN'T HAVE THE SAME ABILITY
TO CONTROL HIS IMPULSES

AS, SAY, YOU OR I?

WELL, ANYONE WHO HAS CHILDREN
KNOWS THAT TO BE TRUE.

GIVEN SHANE'S
GENETIC PREDISPOSITION,

ISN'T IT POSSIBLE THAT SHANE

KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING,

BUT IT WAS PHYSICALLY
IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIM

TO STOP HIMSELF?

WHAT YOU'RE ASKING
IS THE POINT

AT WHICH BIOLOGICAL DRIVES
OVERPOWER REASON.

AND I CAN'T ANSWER THAT.
I DON'T THINK ANYONE CAN.

WHY AS SHANE PUT ON PROZAC
AFTER HE WAS ARRESTED?

I'M NOT HIS PSYCHIATRIST.
I DON'T KNOW.

BUT YOU DO KNOW
THAT AN SSRI ANTIDEPRESSANT,

SUCH AS PROZAC, WOULD RAISE
HIS SEROTONIN LEVELS

AND CURB HIS INSATIABLE APPETITE
FOR SEX.

ISN'T THAT CORRECT?

(Huang)
IT CAN. YES.

SO IF SHANE'S CONDITION
IS TREATABLE,

DO YOU THINK
THAT HE BELONGS IN PRISON?

OBJECTION.

WITHDRAWN.
NOTHING FURTHER, YOUR HONOR.

(Devere)
SHANE, DID YOU FORCE
SARAH TRENT

TO HAVE SEX WITH YOU
AGAINST HER WILL?

YES, I DID.

CAN YOU TELL US WHY?

I DON'T KNOW.

I GUESS I COULDN'T
STOP MYSELF.

NO FURTHER QUESTIONS,
YOUR HONOR.

PEOPLE'S EIGHT, YOUR HONOR.

THESE PICTURES OF SARAH TRENT

WERE SENT TO THE POLICE,

FOUND ON YOUR COMPUTER.

DID SHE POSE FOR YOU?

NO.

THEN WHERE DID YOU GET THEM?

I TOOK HER PICTURES
FROM MY YEARBOOK,

AND I PHOTO-SHOPPED THEM
ONTO SOMEBODY ELSE'S BODY.

(Novak)
WAS THIS BEFORE OR AFTER
YOU RAPED HER?

[sighs]

AFTER.

(Novak)
TO COVER UP WHAT YOU'D DONE?

(Shane)
YEAH.

HOW MANY TIMES DID SARAH TRENT
BEG YOU

TO STOP
WHEN YOU WERE RAPING HER?

I DON'T KNOW.
I DIDN'T COUNT.

OH NO,
YOU WERE TOO BUSY.

I TOLD YOU I COULDN'T STOP.

YOU COULDN'T,
OR YOU DIDN'T FEEL LIKE IT?

I DON'T KNOW, OKAY.
I DIDN'T THINK OF IT AS RAPE!

YOU DIDN'T?

NOW IS THAT BECAUSE YOU KNOW
THAT RAPE IS WRONG?

OF COURSE I KNOW RAPE IS WRONG.

SO THE WHOLE TIME
SHE WAS BEGGING YOU TO STOP

RAPING HER, YOU KNEW
WHAT YOU WERE DOING WAS WRONG.

I WISH IT DIDN'T HAPPEN.

OKAY, I WISH IT DIDN'T HAPPEN.
I'M SORRY.

I AM SO SORRY.

NO FURTHER QUESTIONS.

(Judge)
YOU MAY STEP DOWN, MR. MILLS.

WE'RE IN RECESS UNTIL TOMORROW.

[gavel strikes]

I NEED YOU
TO DO SOMETHING FOR ME.

I DON'T KNOW
WHAT TO SAY.

ME EITHER.

THEN WHY'D YOU COME?

BECAUSE I'M TRYING REALLY HARD

TO UNDERSTAND WHAT HAPPENED.

I JUST--I SCREWED UP.

I JUST REALLY HOPE
YOU CAN FORGIVE ME.

I CAN'T YET, SHANE.

BUT I'M WORKING ON IT.

THE MEDICATION
THAT THEY GAVE ME HELPS.

IT STOPS ME FROM HAVING
THOSE FEELINGS ALL THE TIME.

YOU MEAN ABOUT SEX?

YEAH.

ARE YOU GONNA STAY ON THEM?

I'M GONNA DO
WHATEVER THEY TELL ME.

I JUST--I DON'T EVER
WANNA HURT ANYBODY AGAIN.

PLEASE DON'T SEND HIM TO PRISON.

I CAN LIVE WITH MY PAIN,

BUT I CAN'T LIVE
WITH DESTROYING SHANE'S LIFE

IF THERE'S A CHANCE
HE CAN BE HELPED.

CASEY, YOU KNOW
IT'S THE RIGHT THING.

HE PLEADS GUILTY TO THE RAPE
AND ASSAULT THREE.

HE DOES 18 MONTHS PROBATION

IN A PRIVATE,
SECURE TREATMENT CENTER

FOR JUVENILE SEX OFFENDERS.

AND IF HE SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETES
HIS TREATMENT?

THE JUDGE DISMISSES
HIS RAPE CHARGE.

HIS RECORD'S CLEAN,
AND HE DOES NOT

SPEND THE REST OF HIS LIFE
AS A REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER.

YOU SCREW UP THOUGH,

AND YOU'RE DOING
THE FULL MONTY.

SEVEN YEARS FOR THE RAPE.

SHE'S GIVING YOU
A SECOND CHANCE, SHANE.

DON'T BLOW IT.

I PROMISE I WON'T.

[rings]

HELLO?

YEAH, I'LL BE RIGHT THERE.

HE JUST JUMPED ME
IN THE HALLWAY,

AND THEN HE PUSHED ME
INTO MY ROOM.

DID YOU SEE HIM?

NO, HE PULLED A LAUNDRY BAG
OVER MY FACE.

HE KICKED THE CRAP
OUT OF ME FIRST,

AND THEN THREW ME ON MY BED,
AND HE RAPED ME.

WOULD YOU RECOGNIZE
HIS VOICE?

NO, HE DIDN'T SAY A WORD.

HOW COULD YOU LET THEM
DO THIS TO ME?

WHAT TIME WAS SHANE MILLS
ASSAULTED?

I'M NOT SURE.

MY SECOND IN COMMAND
CALLED ME AT MIDNIGHT.

THAT'S SHANE'S ROOM.

THIS IS A CRIME SCENE!

WHY IS THERE A GARBAGE CAN
OUT HERE?

HEY, YOU!
YOU GET OUT NOW.

THE BED'S BEEN STRIPPED.

WE'VE LOST ALL
OF OUR TRACE EVIDENCE.

WHO IS IN CHARGE,

MR. FELDRON,
WHEN YOU'RE NOT HERE?

MY NIGHT SUPERVISOR,
BUT SHE WENT HOME.

WELL, THEN GET HER ASS
BACK HERE.

AND I WANT
EVERY SURVEILLANCE TAPE YOU HAVE

WITHIN THE NEXT FIVE MINUTES.

I'M SORRY, BUT OUR SECURITY
SYSTEM HAS BEEN DOWN FOR MONTHS,

AND CORPORATE WON'T PAY
TO FIX IT.

WELL, THEN HOW DO YOU PROPOSE

WE FIND THE PERV
THAT RAPED THAT BOY?

TAKE YOUR PICK.

I'VE GOT 50 HARDCORE
SEX OFFENDERS LOCKED UP HERE.

THEN I'M GONNA TALK TO EVERY
SINGLE ONE OF 'EM TONIGHT.

NOW YOU GET A GUARD POSTED
ON THIS DOOR!

I WANT WHOEVER DID THIS TO BURN.

ARE YOU SURE?

BECAUSE I WOULDN'T
WANT TO PUNISH SOMEONE

WHO'S NOT RESPONSIBLE
FOR HIS ACTIONS.

DON'T YOU DARE PUT
THIS MESS OFF ON ME!

I PUT SHANE IN THIS MESS

BECAUSE I BOUGHT INTO
YOUR SIDESHOW IN COURT.

I GAVE SHANE
MY BEST DEFENSE.

I DID MY JOB.

DO YOURS.

TREATMENT CENTER?

WHY DON'T YOU TRY
WASTE TREATMENT CENTER.

THIS PLACE IS A CESSPOOL.

(Novak)
WHY IS THAT?

BECAUSE EVERYBODY'S DOING IT.

AND WHEN THE GUYS AREN'T HAVING
SEX WITH EACH OTHER,

THEN THEY'RE OFF BOFFING
THE STAFF, MEN AND WOMEN.

WHICH STAFF MEMBERS?

WHAT?
ARE YOU CRAZY, LADY?

THEY'LL CUT MY BALLS OFF
IF I GIVE YOU NAMES.

LET'S JUST SAY IT GOES
TO THE TOP, ALL RIGHT?

THE ADMINISTRATOR?

NAH, FELDRON'S CLEAN.

GRAB ASS STARTS AT NIGHT
WHEN HE'S GONE.

AND THERE AIN'T NOBODY AROUND
TO STOP IT.

IT WAS WORSE
THAN USUAL TONIGHT.

WHERE WERE THE GUARDS?

WHERE THEY ALWAYS ARE,
CATCHING Z's IN THEIR OFFICE.

IT GETS SCARY AROUND HERE, MAN.

THAT KID SHANE'S NOT
THE ONLY KID THAT'S BEEN RAPED.

HOW MANY OTHERS?

I HEAR TWO.

DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA
WHO MIGHT HAVE DONE THEM?

MAYBE.

YOU CAN TELL ME.

EVERYBODY ELSE THINKS WE DESERVE
THIS CRAP.

WHAT MAKES YOU
ALL BLEEDING HEART CARING?

NOBODY HAS THE RIGHT
TO TOUCH YOU.

PETE WAS HANGING AROUND.

HE USUALLY DOESN'T WORK NIGHTS.

WHO'S PETE?

ONE OF THE GUARDS.

I SAW HIM AT 7:30.

HE'S USUALLY GONE BY 4:00.

PETE LINCOLN WASN'T APPROVED
FOR OVERTIME YESTERDAY.

THEN WHY WAS HE HERE
FOR MORE THAN THREE HOURS

AFTER HIS TOUR ENDED?

I'LL CHECK, BUT PETE'S
AS CLEAN AS THEY COME.

HE'S A RETIRED COP
FROM FLORIDA.

FIRST ONE I'D RULE OUT
AS A SUSPECT.

WELL, IS THERE ANYONE WHO WORKS
HERE THAT YOU WOULDN'T RULE OUT?

I DON'T THINK I LIKE YOUR TONE,
MISS NOVAK.

ANSWER THE QUESTION.
WE DON'T HIRE CRIMINALS.

REALLY?

THEN WHO'S RESPONSIBLE
FOR THE TWO OTHER CLIENTS

THAT WERE RAPED?

THOSE ANIMALS ARE DOING IT
TO EACH OTHER.

THEY'RE PREDATORS.

THAT KID TONIGHT
GOT WHAT HE DESERVED.

THAT IS RIGHT, BECAUSE
HE AND THE REST OF THEM

ARE NOTHING BUT
HUMAN GARBAGE.

GET AWAY FROM ME!

I'M GONNA FIND WHOEVER'S BEEN
BRUTALIZING THESE KIDS,

AND I'M GONNA PROVE
YOU'VE BEEN PROTECTING HIM

TO SAVE YOUR OWN ASS,
YOU SON OF A BITCH!

NOBODY REPORTED
BEING ATTACKED!

HEY!
WHAT'S GOING ON HERE?

WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING?

SHE'S CRAZY.

MAKE SURE YOU GET
PERSONNEL FILES ON EVERY ONE

OF HIS EMPLOYEES NOW!

WHAT THE HELL
ARE YOU DOING?

HE ORDERED HIS MEN
TO CLEAN UP A CRIME SCENE.

THAT'S MY PROBLEM.
NOT YOURS.

THESE PEOPLE DIDN'T EVEN CALL
THE POLICE!

THAT'S OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE.

AND GRABBING HIS SHIRT
IS ASSAULT,

WHICH I UNFORTUNATELY
JUST WITNESSED.

WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO?
ARE YOU GONNA ARREST ME?

I MAY NOT HAVE A CHOICE.

CASEY, YOU'RE DROWNING HERE,
AND UNLESS STABLER

CAN CONVINCE THAT GUY
TO CHANGE HIS MIND,

I CAN'T EVEN THROW YOU
A LIFE JACKET!

I'M A BIG GIRL.

I KNOW HOW TO SWIM.

HOW'S SHANE?

ABOUT TO GO INTO SURGERY.

(Stabler)
WHY?

TO PUT HIS ARM
BACK TOGETHER.

THE BASTARD WHO RAPED HIM
SHATTERED IT.

YOU CAN'T BE BLAMING YOURSELF
FOR THIS.

WHY NOT?

I CONVICT KIDS LIKE SHANE
ALL THE TIME,

AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT HAPPENS
TO THEM AFTERWARDS.

I SHOULD HAVE CHECKED BEFORE
I PUT SHANE INTO THAT HELLHOLE.

THAT'S NOT YOUR JOB.

WHOSE IS IT?
IS IT YOURS?

COURT'S? LEGISLATURE?

THE BEST WAY
YOU CAN PROTECT THESE KIDS

IS BY NAILING THE SON OF A BITCH
WHO DID THIS TO SHANE.

I'M NOT GONNA BE
MUCH USE TO YOU

AFTER I TAKE THAT COLLAR
FOR ASSAULTING FELDRON.

WELL, WHEN I TOLD HIM
WHAT A WORLD OF HURT

THAT I WOULD BRING ON HIM,
HE BACKED OFF.

THANKS.

DOC SAID THE RAPE KIT HAD PLENTY
OF HAIRS AND FLUID FOR DNA.

BAD NEWS IS WE CAN'T SWAB
EVERY KASTNER CENTER EMPLOYEE

WITHOUT PROBABLE CAUSE.

SO HELP US FIND IT
IN THE PERSONNEL JACKETS.

THEY CALL THIS
A PERSONNEL JACKET?

WHERE ARE
THE BACKGROUND INVESTIGATIONS,

EVALUATIONS,
FITNESS REPORTS?

ALL KEPT
AT KASTNER'S HEADQUARTERS

IN CHEYENNE, WYOMING.

WHAT KIND OF A CORPORATION
IS THIS?

ONE THAT STATES PAY
TO RUN THEIR PRISONS.

GOT INTO THE SEX OFFENDER REHAB
BUSINESS A COUPLE YEARS BACK.

THIS GUARD
HAS A MENACING

AND MISDEMEANOR
POSSESSION OF CRACK.

I'LL RAISE YOU ONE CRIMINAL
MISCHIEF AND TWO STOLEN CARS.

EVERYONE WHO WORKS
IN THAT PLACE HAS A RECORD.

ALL EXCEPT THE ADMINISTRATOR,
THE NIGHT SUPERVISOR,

AND THAT GUARD,
PETE LINCOLN.

22 YEARS WITH THE TAMPA PD,
THREE YEARS AS A GUARD

AT THE GULF COAST SEX OFFENDER
REHABILITATION CENTER.

THEN WHY COME
ALL THE WAY UP HERE

FOR A JOB THAT PAYS
MINIMUM WAGE?

SPECIAL VICTIMS,
DETECTIVE STABLER.

APPARENTLY THAT'S THE GOING RATE
FOR EVERYONE AT KASTNER,

EXCEPT FOR MANAGEMENT.

IT MUST BE HOW THEY ATTRACT
THE CREAM OF THE CROP.

WARNER JUST CALLED.
DNA'S BACK.

WE GET A HIT?

EARL ROMAINE, 43,
RAPED A 13-YEAR-OLD BOY.

I DON'T REMEMBER SEEING
HIS NAME

ON THE LIST
OF KASTNER CENTER EMPLOYEES.

WARNER'S EMAILING HIS MUG SHOT
AND RAP SHEET NOW.

CAN'T WAIT TO FIND OUT
HOW THIS DIRT-BAG GOT

IN THERE TO RAPE SHANE.

MAYBE THAT GUY
LET HIM IN.

PETE LINCOLN?

THIS IS THE REAL PETE LINCOLN,

AND HE STILL WORKS AT THAT
SEX OFFENDER CENTER IN FLORIDA.

WELL, IF THAT'S
NOT PETE LINCOLN--

(Benson)
IT'S GOTTA BE EARL ROMAINE
IMPERSONATING HIM.

OKAY, IT'S 2:00, AND ROMAINE'S
TOUR STARTS AT 4:00.

HE LIVES IN GREENPOINT.

WHAT ARE YOU STARING AT?

ONE SORRY-ASS WHITE BOY.

YOU GOT A PROBLEM
WITH ME, SPOOK, BRING IT.

THAT'S DETECTIVE SPOOK
TO YOU, ROMAINE.

EARL ROMAINE,
YOU'RE UNDER ARREST

FOR THE RAPE
OF SHANE MILLS.

SCREW YOU.

SORRY,
YOU'RE NOT HIS TYPE.

(Novak)
ROMAINE STOLE
GUARD PETE LINCOLN'S IDENTITY

SO HE COULD GET A JOB
AT THE KASTNER CENTER,

WHERE HE'D HAVE
UNLIMITED BOYS TO RAPE.

ROMAINE'S A REGISTERED
SEX OFFENDER IN FLORIDA.

THE KASTNER CENTER WOULD HAVE
FOUND THAT OUT

IF THEY'D BOTHERED
TO RUN HIS FINGERPRINTS.

WE FOUND DOZENS OF EMAILS
PROVING THE PEOPLE

WHO RAN THE KASTNER CENTER
KNEW THE TWO OTHER RAPE VICTIMS

HAD IDENTIFIED ROMAINE
AS THEIR ATTACKER,

BUT DID NOTHING TO STOP HIM.

AFTER THE GOVERNOR FOUND OUT
WHAT HAD HAPPENED,

HE ORDERED ALL
KASTNER CENTER CLIENTS MOVED

TO JUVENILE DETENTION,

AND THE PLACE CLOSED DOWN
FOR GOOD.

WE'RE LOOKING INTO FILING

CRIMINAL CHARGES
AGAINST THE KASTNER CORPORATION.

SHANE DIDN'T FINISH
HIS TREATMENT.

ARE YOU GOING
TO SEND HIM TO JAIL?

MISS NOVAK AND I
WORKED OUT A DEAL.

I'M RECOMMENDING TO THE JUDGE
THAT SHANE BE RELEASED

ON PROBATION AND CONTINUE
HIS TREATMENT

ON AN OUTPATIENT BASIS.

SAME RULES APPLY, THOUGH.

YOU MESS UP,
AND YOU'RE GOING TO PRISON.

UNDERSTAND?

YES.

I REALLY HOPE I'M NOT
PROSECUTING SHANE

FOR ANOTHER RAPE
TWO YEARS FROM NOW.

YOU DON'T THINK
THE TREATMENT'LL HELP HIM?

IT DIDN'T HELP
THE SCUM WHO RAPED HIM.

ROMAINE'S AN ADULT.

HE NEEDS TO BE LOCKED UP

UNTIL WE CAN FIND A WAY
TO FIX HIM, IF THERE IS A WAY.

SHANE'S A KID.
HE DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE.

MISS NOVAK!

IT'S ALL OVER THE NEWS.

IS SHANE THE KID WHO GOT RAPED
AT THE KASTNER CENTER?

I'M AFRAID SO.
YES.

IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT.
HONEY.

HE'S GONNA BE OKAY.

WE'RE ACTUALLY ABOUT TO GO
QUESTION HIS ATTACKER.

IS IT TRUE
THAT THE KASTNER CENTER

IS OFFERING SHANE
A MILLION DOLLARS

NOT TO FILE A LAWSUIT?

I HADN'T HEARD--

YES.
THAT'S TRUE.

HOW CRAZY IS THE LAW.

THAT KID RAPED MY WIFE,
AND HE GETS A MILLION BUCKS.

WHAT DOES SARAH GET?

SHE GETS NOTHING.
RIGHT?

LET'S GET OUT OF HERE.

I DON'T BLAME HIM.

YOU KNOW HE DIDN'T MEAN
TO HURT HER.

HEY!

IT'S NOT HIS FAULT
THAT THE LAW

HASN'T CAUGHT UP TO SCIENCE.

HEY, THE LAW'S
ONE SIZE FITS ALL.

IT'S NOT CUSTOMIZED
FOR EVERY BRAIN.

SHANE KNEW RIGHT FROM WRONG.

YOU SURE
YOU DON'T WANT A LAWYER?

DON'T NEED ONE.

I'D RETHINK THAT
IF I WERE YOU, EARL.

I MEAN, IT IS YOUR DNA
INSIDE SHANE MILLS.

THIS TIME YOU'RE
NEVER GETTING OUT.

TOO BAD ALL THAT TREATMENT YOU
HAD DOWN IN FLORIDA DIDN'T TAKE.

I GUESS I'M JUST WIRED BAD.

I CAN'T HELP MYSELF.

YOU KNOW,

LIKE THAT KID I RAPED.
