A rape victim, Vicki, is brought into the hospital initially claiming she has been attacked multiple times by the same man. Detectives Benson and Stabler are determined to help her, but she lives in such terror that she then denies she has been raped at all and refuses to submit to a rape kit. As Benson looks for a way to help, she is horrified to learn that there are police precincts and evidence labs across the country that never test their rape kits at all. The investigation soon leads her to Los Angeles where she meets Detective Rex Winters, who has information that could finally help Vicki get justice. Written by NBC Publicity

Olivia comments to the ADA that she wishes they could charge Harris with more than just the most recent rape to Vicki. There would of been an easy way to do that: turn the case over to the FBI. Harris raped multiple women in at least four different states, and he crossed state lines to continue raping Vicki, which makes this a federal case. Whenever someone crosses state lines while committing a crime that means the case falls under federal jurisdiction. Considering that first degree rape has no statute of limitations at the federal level the feds would of been able to put Harris away for life. See more »

Preacher: Bless you. The Lord said what goes into a man's mouth cannot make him unclean. For it moves through his stomach and out his body. What comes out of a man's mouth is unclean for it comes from the heart. Where evil lurks. Immorality. Adultery. Lust.
Bus Driver: [turns around] Hey. Why don't you take that act somewhere else, preacher man?
Preacher: Ah, uh, definitely got a -a soul back here that needs saving.

"Ghost Wisperer" cries "RAPE"
2 October 2010 | by Reginald D. GarrardSee all my reviews

In another bit of inspired casting, the SVU folks cast former "Ghost Whisperer" star, Jennifer Love Hewitt, as a young woman who claims to have been repeatedly "taken advantage of" by the same guy, a traveling businessman, who may or may not be a serial rapist. Hewitt, an actress who has proved her skills in episodic television, gives a worthy-of-an-Emmy-nomination performance.

Equally as impressive is guest star James Les Gros who plays the possible perpetrator. Judith Light also makes one of her return visits as Judge Donnelly.

This episodes also "hints" at its sister show, "Law & Order: Los Angeles" by introducing that show's Skeet Ulrich as he helps Benson (Mariska Hargitay) investigate the similar rapes that occurred in Los Angeles.
