When seventeen year-old Anna McWilliams is found strangled and beaten to death in an alley, her ex-boyfriend leads the cops to a website that McWilliams used to meet up with random men. Detective Olivia Benson decides to create a user account for the site and finds womanizer Peter Butler, the man who met up with McWilliams. The case is closed when a different suspect is proven guilty of her murder, and a new one opens when McWilliams rape kit tests positive for HIV. Not only is HIV spreading as a result of countless attacks, but now the detectives must also catch a rapist on the loose. Written by NBC Publicity

Did You Know?


In New York State the laws on preventing, forcing or coercing someone from revealing information in a criminal investigation or trial are a little different than other states, they have separate penal codes to distinguish from preventing someone from giving a statement to police and testifying in court or a grand jury. Most states don't distinguish between the two, doing either one gets you charged with witness intimidation. In New York preventing someone from giving a statement or acting as a witness to the police is witness tampering, there are four degrees of witness tampering. Witness tampering in the fourth degree is a class-A misdemeanor, third degree is a class-E felony, second degree is a class-D felony and first degree is a class-B felony. Preventing someone from testifying or being a witness at a grand jury hearing or a trial is witness intimidation. There are three degrees of witness intimidation, third degree is a class-E felony, second degree is a class-D felony, first degree is a class-B felony. See more »

Rebecca Ellison: [after Cabot shows Rebecca information on AIDS awareness in court] Why are you doing this to me?
A.D.A. Alexandra Cabot: To demonstrate that Peter Butler is not totally responsible for infecting you. You are responsible, too. You chose to sleep with him. You chose to have sex without a condom. You chose a risk. The same way you could have chosen to say no.
