A female high school student (Amanda Seyfried) has disappeared, but is found several days later. She claims that she was raped by several men in uniform. An old friend of Stabler's, now a newspaper reporter, is part of the media frenzy surrounding the girl. The detectives investigate the cadets whom the girl accuses of raping her, but their names are leaked to the media and one of the cadets is attacked and almost killed. Under pressure, the girl retracts her story, but Benson is still convinced that she was raped. They begin to investigate the girl's overly protective stepfather, but it is eventually revealed that he is innocent and that the girl was raped by her stepfather's boss. She said nothing because she wanted to protect her stepfather's job, which (due to his heart problems) he needs for the health insurance. The boss is acquitted at trial, but afterward, a previous victim comes forward to tell Stabler and Benson that the boss raped her as well.

The son of psychiatrist Dr. Brett Morton (Kyle McLachlan) disappears from a birthday party, and is found dead by the police. Despite viewing his child's body in the morgue, Morton remains perfectly calm and asks carefully laid questions about his son's death, which fills the detectives with unease. When it becomes clear that the little boy who helped the investigate is actually the killer, the police question children who knew the killer. Testimonies bring to light that the boy is a sociopath with violent tendencies, who is treated leniently by the court. As a result, Dr. Morton loses his composure in court and fatally shoots the boy. As a claim of defense during his subsequent trial, Morton claims he was not aware of what he was doing, and his despair overrode his senses. He rationalizes that the killing was just, because the unrepentant boy would have just gone on to kill again, but he, Dr. Morton, wouldn't.

Benson sides with Myra, the victim, whereas Stabler finds himself wondering if Polikoff is telling the truth about being innocent, especially after Myra falsely accuses Stabler of touching her inappropriately.
