After a young woman is found raped and murdered near a nightclub with five hundred dollars stuffed into her mouth, Benson and Stabler follow the fingerprint trail on the money to attorney Jason Whitaker, whose sole responsibility seems to be handling the trust for the wealthy Duvall family. Soon detectives are convinced that Gabriel Duvall is their rapist, but don't have quite enough evidence to put him away. Novak is working on both the case and a terrified former victim when she is brutally attacked in her office late at night. Written by Anonymous

Captain Donald Cragen: Elliot in here now.
Eleanor Duvall: Dective Stabler. Gabriel says that you entered his apartment and threatened him?
Detective Elliot Stabler: Yes. I was conducting an investigation. A colleague of mine was beaten nearly to death in her office.
Eleanor Duvall: Well, if you had investigated further you would have known that Gabriel was out having dinner.
Detective Elliot Stabler: I didn't know that at the time.
Eleanor Duvall: Tell me Detective Stabler do you like your job?
Detective Elliot Stabler: Yes I do.
Eleanor Duvall: You have 42 prior arrests that's very commendable. But I know the mayor of this town. Don't make me go to him.

Misleading portrayal of Asperger's Syndrome
30 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode, Alfred Molina's character bases his defense on having Asperger's Syndrome, a condition on the autistic spectrum. Its major features involve intense focus on narrow areas of interest and social awkwardness, but not criminal or assaultive behavior. People with this condition appear to lack empathy, but are no different in the level of their concern for others, only difficulty in showing it. Asperger's has received a fair amount of publicity in recent years, but there is no evidence that it causes anyone to commit violent crimes. In fact, "Aspies", as they sometimes call themselves, have a strong inclination to follow rules and obey the law. Aspies have no greater propensity to commit crimes than so-called neurotypicals. After this episode aired, major autism advocacy organizations protested to NBC, and continue to demand that it be withdrawn from syndication.
