LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT --(10:00PM-11:00PM) --(TV-14)
WHEN A HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT FROM MONTREAL VANISHES ON A SCHOOL TRIP TO NEW YORK CITY, THREE COCKY PREP SCHOOL TEENS WHO MET UP WITH HER EARLIER ARE THE PRIME SUSPECTS. The three teens -- Jason King (Harry Zittel), Doug Waverly (Teddy Eck) and Nick Pratt (Paul David Story) - had been partying with the victim, Jennifer Durning (Barbara King). Nick and Doug have very rich parents. Jason is supposedly a "good kid" who was in the city studying at Julliard, so Nick and Doug and their attorneys say that their plan was for Jason to lose his virginity, then afterward Nick and Doug had consensual sex with Jennifer, but Jason got greedy and wanted to go again, that's when she freaked out and Jason talked about killing her to shut her up. Jason agrees to testify and the cops release him to his parents, but when Jason disappears, Judge Donnelly has no choice but to dismiss the case. Attorneys Dave Seaver (Michael Boatman), Oliver Gates (Barry Bostwick), and Monica Bradshaw (Susan St. James) represent the teens. Novak (Diane Neal) is suspicious - it had to have been someone in Donnelly's office who leaked Jason's whereabouts - because without his testimony there's really no case against Doug and Nick.
Mariska Hargitay, Chris Meloni, Tamara Tuni, Dann Florek, Richard Belzer and Ice T also star.
