Benson and Stabler have to convince ADA Marlowe to arrest the suspect for raping Sophia so that he doesn't get released and flee the jurisdiction and/or rape another woman but she is hesitant to do so because they don't have Sophia to make a complaint against him. Yet Munch and Fin caught the suspect forcing another pregnant woman to walk with him at knife-point, he threatened her with harm to her unborn baby if she didn't go with him. That means they can arrest him and charge him with unlawful imprisonment in the first degree, a class-E felony with a maximum sentence of four years, and criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree, a class-D felony with a maximum sentence of seven years. With the suspect's prior criminal record of sexual assault he would either be remanded or be given a high bail amount, and upon conviction he would get the maximum sentence giving them more than enough time to build a case against him for Sophia's rape. So the debate about not having cause to arrest him so he can't get away or harm another woman was redundant. See more »

Sharon Stone adds a dramatic energy
3 February 2019 | by enchantmentsllcSee all my reviews

I really enjoy this series with all of the wonderful professional guest actors from film, stage, television and its decades long run proves it's quality. As far as those who wish to slam quality acting like Ms. Stone, perhaps when you are nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress your opinion will have value. Until then not so much. Peace.
