Storyline

The SVU teams up with federal prosecutor Connie Rubirosa (guest star Alana de la Garza) after an underage runaway is found raped and beaten under the Highline. The sex trafficking investigation leads to New Jersey strip club owner Perry Cannavaro (guest star Chaz Palminteri), who does all he can to keep the victim out of the SVU's jurisdiction. When ADA Barba (Raúl Esparza) fails to get the help he needs from Jersey law enforcement, he suspects a cover-up involving some high ranking court officials. Written by Anonymous

Justice in New Jersey
22 January 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The criminal justice system in New Jersey gets quite a going over in this SVU episode where their investigation of the rape of Stefanie Scott in a club in New York gets derailed when she's arrested in New York and transferred over to Hudson County in New Jersey where she's the suspect in a credit card fraud scheme. Stefanie late of Disney Channels The Ant Farm becomes more of a victim there than she was at the hands of a rapist in Chazz Palmantieri's club in New York where she was an underage stripper.

I have to say that Palmantieri is some piece of work himself. He's got a club in New Jersey which is part of the tie in with Scott's predicament. And he's got hooks right into the criminal justice system there.

For acting squad commander Mariska Hargitay it's a good thing she has a friendly federal prosecutor in Alana DeLa Garza late of the New York County District Attorney. Turns out they've been looking at Palmantieri for a while and this situation that SVU brings them is just what they need.

Nice to see DeLa Garza cooperating with the local PD for a change. She must remember all the battles she had when she was Sam Waterston's second chair.

Palmantieri has a judge in his pocket and it;s quite a story. Tune in to this one.
