Law & Order: Special Victims Unit


Series 10 - Episode 21 Liberties



Here's another story that’s more about the judge than the crime or defendant. Benson and Stabler are investigating a rape that they work out was orchestrated by a third person wanting to get revenge on the victim. The case is assigned to Judge Koehler (Ugly Betty’s Alan Dale), a respected court official whose young son was one of a string of kids abducted 30 years earlier. So, as the rape case proceeds, the focus shifts onto the judge’s personal history...


A man accused of sexual assault is adamant that he contacted the woman on a fantasy rape website. Benson and Stabler reveal that the victim's computer may have been hacked, leading them to suspect her ex-boyfriend of setting her up - but during the trial, the judge asks the detectives to help solve a 30-year-old murder that could be connected to the case. Crime drama, guest starring Alan Dale.
