I advised him of his Miranda rights, detectives Stabler and Tutuola questioned him, with his attorney present, and Carrie Huitt positively identified him as the man who had raped her the night before.
ADA Alexandra Cabot: Thank you, Detective.

The Yuppie Rapist
1 December 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Fred Savage kid star of The Wonder Years got about as far as you can get from the wide eyed kid of that series to playing a Yuppie rapist on SVU. He's likable and charming and that's the reason that Stephanie March just can't quite wrap up the conviction. He sure doesn't fit a rapist profile.

He's also married with a nice Yuppie type job, but on certain nights goes on the prowl. The SVU squad finds a pattern, but charges only stick against one of four victims.

Savage defends himself in court with standby counsel. He's quite resourceful, a plot gambit we've seen on all the other Law And Order shows as well. He's got a particular grudge against Mariska Hargitay.

Savage is quite the revelation in this show.
