After a young woman is found raped and murdered near a nightclub with five hundred dollars stuffed into her mouth, Benson and Stabler follow the fingerprint trail on the money to attorney Jason Whitaker, whose sole responsibility seems to be handling the trust for the wealthy Duvall family. Soon detectives are convinced that Gabriel Duvall is their rapist, but don't have quite enough evidence to put him away. Novak is working on both the case and a terrified former victim when she is brutally attacked in her office late at night. Written by Anonymous

When trying to figure out who took Nina Zergin into custody Captain Cragen says it wasn't the fed's because he checked with the FBI who said they did not have her in custody. The first thing they should have done is checked with the DHS (Department of Homeland Security) to see if they took her into custody. After 9/11 the DHS became responsible for immigration and customs enforcement (among other things); in 2002 the INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service) was shut down and reorganized into ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), which is a division of the DHS. Since Nina is an illegal alien it would stand to reason that there was a good chance that she was taken into custody by ICE. See more »

Inviting targets
19 November 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This particular SVU story is awash in name guest stars. Alfred Molina, Bradley Cooper, Rita Moreno and Angela Lansbury all have significant roles here.

The SVU catches a case of a rape and beating of immigrant women who are left with C notes stuffed in their mouths. The notes have the prints of lawyer Bradley Cooper, but our perpetrator is the very rich trust fund baby Alfred Molina who is a mama's boy and a liking for beating up women. Immigrant women are targets because they're worried about their citizenship status. They're reluctant to testify as Cooper rats them out to the INS.

This episode also involves a brutal attack on Casey Novak who was getting ready to prosecute Molina.

The story finishes on the short lived Law And Order Trial By Jury with the DA's own investigators taking over from SVU.

There's a most touching scene with a battered Diane Neal talking to one of the witnesses to give her courage to come forth. Highlight of the episode and one of Diane Neal's best moments in SVU.

Worth watching for that alone.
