Law & Order Season 23 Episode 11 Recap
The episode kicks out with Benson’s kid in a cage with a dog collar and a bully filming him. When Benson asks him what’s up, the kid comes out clear. We then cut to a Latino family, there’s Tino, an eight-year-old boy with a knack for gaming, and Carlos, his uncle, an irresponsible hack who leaves the kid to go to his girlfriend’s to get high on pot and drink some beers. Turns out that while the kid is gaming, a pervert contacts the kid and arranges for the two to meet up in a corner. Tino grabs Carlos’ computer, and the pervert, Teddy Murtaugh, picks him up, takes him to his place, drugs him, and sexually abuses him.
Because Tino doesn’t show up, the family calls the police, and then the SVU shows up. Later on, the team manages to track down the pervert to his apartment using the signals intelligence from Carlos’ computer, and they find Tino tied up to a radiator. They take him to the hospital and find out that Teddy Murtaugh sexually abused him. After that, the SVU is on the hunt. Firstly, the apartment where the crime took place was rented via a Venmo account with a fake profile. Secondly, the SVU narrowed the manhunt down to Murtaugh’s home, only to find the child molester stabbed and bleeding to death.
Who Stabbed Tino’s Assailant?
When the SVU investigates the assault on the child molester, they narrow it down to Carlos, who posts bail and manages to get out. Later on, during the arraignment, the child molester gets a plea deal and bail. But the SVU isn’t happy about it, so they decide to pursue a tougher path towards trial. And then something new happens. It turns out that Carlos’ girlfriend’s son Andre accuses Carlos of molesting him. And the SVU questions Andre, and the plot thickens because the minute they decide to make a move on Carlos, the man is threatening to jump out of a roof.
When Benson goes into the roof to negotiate with Carlos, he confesses that he was abused and that he indeed abused Andre. They take Carlos to the Hospital, and he explains how a teacher sexually abused him in middle school. They end up making Carlos plead guilty to abuse two, add his name to a sexual offender registry.
