Olivia Benson : You're only charging April with fraud and extortion? She's a walking crime spree.
A.D.A. Casey Novak : My hands are tied. The three dozen of her victims don't even have a memory of being raped.
Olivia Benson : What about the baby?
A.D.A. Casey Novak : No hospitals in the tri-state area even have a record that she delivered one.
Olivia Benson : Casey, trust me, she did. And then she sold it or she drowned it or who knows. But that evil bitch did something terrible with that baby.
A.D.A. Casey Novak : You know, for all we know, it really was stillborn, and that's not a crime.
Olivia Benson : No, it's a con! April has been scamming us since day one. She never had any intention of jumping off that ledge.
A.D.A. Casey Novak : She played you, so now you're pissed.
Olivia Benson : Yes, I'm pissed. But we still have to find that baby. Not to mention ruining Barclay Pallister's life.
A.D.A. Casey Novak : That's not our fault. That's April's.
Olivia Benson : And knowing her, she will find someone else to blame.
Cleo Conrad : April was raised without any moral values whatsoever.
A.D.A. Casey Novak : So she's a sociopath.
Cleo Conrad : April's well aware of right and wrong, but she believes the law doesn't apply to her. That's how she was brought up.
A.D.A. Casey Novak : My mother told me that storks bring babies and that Santa came down the chimney, but you know what, you grow up and you realize that some of the things your parents told you aren't true.
Cleo Conrad : Not if you're brainwashed. April Troost is like a suicide bomber, indoctrinated from birth. She lives her life by the lies her mother told her.
A.D.A. Casey Novak : Ignorance of the law is no defense.
Cleo Conrad : Mental defect is. Your shrink will agree, April wasn't responsible for her actions.
