Jason Wiles, who plays Alexander Gammon, played police officer Maurice "Bosco" Boscorelli in another police procedure drama Third Watch (1999). See more »


ADA Hardwicke says that they don't have enough to arrest Camille and hold her because the victims didn't identify her and they don't want to press charges on the breaking & entering and assault, plus the GPS on her cell phone puts her across town at the times of the first two attacks. However they found her in possession of Ketamine, which is a Schedule III controlled substance, so they could have at least arrested her for unlawful possession of a controlled substance.

A.D.A. Gillian Hardwicke: That's quite a stretch. Hearing a laugh and assuming it's the child you gave up for adoption?
Olivia Benson: A mother knows her child.

Olivia for the defense
2 August 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The SVU squad gets called in when two men are both branded and sexually assaulted and a third friend looks good to be the next victim. Benson and Stabler set up to catch the perpetrator in the act and it turns out to be Bess Rous who has history with them. They deny it of course, but it's some history, she was gang raped by them while they were her counselors at summer camp.

Which gains her sympathy from Olivia as Rous became pregnant as a juvenile and gave up her baby for adoption. Of course the squad led by Olivia wants new ADA Melissa Sagemiller to prosecute the three men, but the statute of limitations has run out and she was caught in the act of assaulting one of them.

Mariska Hargitay goes to work for the defense here and let's say justice is served in this episode. Kudos go to Bess Rous for her performance as a victim with long pent up emotions.
