Trivia

Angie Harmon's character is telling the defendant, Professor James Henri Rousseau, that he will be serving not one but three class A felonies, equaling three years of jail time. However, under NYS law, three class A felonies would earn a defendant three needles. What Harmon meant was that Rousseau would be serving three class A misdemeanors, which carry a maximum sentence of a year each. See more »

Goofs

Way to much to trust
1 March 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The death of a popular sophomore student brings the SVU squad to St. Raymond's College which as it happens is the alma mater of Dann Florek. Not that the college is bending over backwards to help an alumnus. In fact they're throwing all kinds of roadblocks into the SVU squad investigation.

This episode also as they were trying to establish characters in those early years shows a bit of Elliott Stabler home life. Christopher Meloni is most concerned the late hours that daughter Erin Broderick is keeping. As he says in his job he sees way too much to trust.

It turns out that the victim had sex with two people that night under different circumstances to say the least. One of them is French literature professor Lothaire Bluteau and his description of the night's events leaves even the SVU squad which has thought they heard it all kind of gasping. That is nothing however compared to ADA Angie Harmon who was crossing over from Law And Order prime. I have rarely seen disgust portrayed so well on the big screen and small.
