Watching this SVU episode put me in mind of the film True Believer where a snitch who has made some historic cases for District Attorney Kurtwood Smith is given a license to commit all kinds of crimes. One of them is a murder where an innocent kid is sent to prison and defense attorneys James Woods and Robert Downey, Jr. try to get them out.
In this story the SVU squad led by Mariska Hargitay works on behalf of rape victim Yvonne Zima who's being framed for the murder of her boyfriend by the man who raped her, Enver Gjokaj. He's got a great pull with the Suffolk County DA's office having made many cases for Jane Kaczmarek and she's prosecuting Zima. At the same time Manhattan is prosecuting Gjokaj for the same murder.
Gjokaj is a real smug piece of work. He's someone you really love to hate and love to see brought down.
An interesting episode with SVU working for the other side so to speak.
