Benson's case unravels
4 January 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This SVU episode really begins 8 years earlier when Mariska Hargitay collared Guillermo Diaz for a rape. He confessed once and then recanted and has been screaming innocent ever since. Now he has top defense attorney Andre Braugher on his side.

With her new partner Danny Pino, Mariska's now looking afresh at the evidence at the request of ADA Harry Connick, Jr. You'll not believe the simple and innocent error made by the NYPD that unravels this whole case and sends them looking for a new perpetrator.

Braugher is right when he says that Olivia Benson has character unlike a lot of cops he deals with. It's not shown better than in this story.
