Episode Info

The SVU investigates when graduate student Myra Denning (Shannyn Sosamon) claims that she was raped by college advisor Ron Polikoff (Billy Campbell). A voluntary DNA exam reveals that Polikoff has indeed been intimate with Myra--but he tells a different story of their relationship, insisting that the girl manipulated him into having rough sex. The case results in an emotional schism between Detective Stabler (Christopher Meloni), who believes Polikoff's story, and Detective Benson (Mariska Hargitay), who sides with Myra. When this episode originally aired on November 23, 2004, viewers were invited to cast their votes on NBC.com to determine whether Ron Polikoff was truly a rapist, or if he was an innocent victim of a duplicitous young woman (and no, the results will not be revealed in this synopsis).
