Don't Dis the judge
5 July 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This SVU story concerns teenage drinking and it begins when a couple who had gone away for a weekend came back and found a dead girl in their bedroom. And she's a complete stranger besides.

The trouble is that a young teen prep school girl who was to walk their dog had the run of the place and had a drinking party there. The young woman in question was from out of state, new to all and never drank before and it accidentally killed her.

So instead of taking any responsibility they left her to die. A nice group of privileged rich kids.

The recent story of that college athlete who got a light sentence for rape comes to mind here. These kids aren't criminals, there's a tendency to let them off easy. The problem is that they've been left easy way too often.

There are a whole lot of other plot elements here, but I do like Judith Light's performance here as Judge Elizabeth Donnelly. She gives them a warning and these dopey kids dis her on line. As Christopher Meloni's daughter tells him, you want to find out what kids are up to just go to their Facebook, Twitter, MySpace at the time this episode was released. They tell all. That's now almost a standard investigatory technique now.

Judith Light does not take things lightly. Not a woman to cross as they find out.
