Trivia

This storyline is a not-so-subtle reference to the sexual abuse scandal at the Horace Mann School in Riverdale. In 2012, multiple allegations were revealed by former students from as long ago as the early 1970s, directed at long-time teachers at HMS. See more »

Quotes

[to a support group for sexual abuse victims]
Detective Olivia Benson: Gentlemen, if I may? I've been doing this for a long time, and I understand the shame and the stigma. But keeping the abuse secret... doesn't make it go away.

The training ground of the rich and privileged
5 December 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The SVU steps into the training ground of the rich and privileged when decades old rumors about sexual abuse of the students surface from as early as the 70s. But a whole lot of people have reputations to protect, a whole lot like when those allegations surface against a religious institutions.

We've even got one former teacher played by Elliott Gould who admits to the allegations. Of course he admits that he only did it with kids who were over the age of majority at 18 and that's not illegal. Still he proves to be an invaluable asset in uncovering the abuse.

The scary one is the current head of the board of trustees and alumnus of the school Charles Grodin. The school's reputation must be saved at all cost and in the end it costs him plenty.

I'd check this one out.
