The original used quite a few different college names Manhattan University, Amsterdam College, Kensington, Hudson U, and Stuyvesant College are all ones I remember although as the years went on they seemed to stick with Hudson more and more. Dominic Carisi and his niece. The issue of consent is a hot topic, and rightfully so. And seriously Parisi, you should feel guilty because you got away with telling your niece to lie about her first rape. She is supposed to be investigating crimes and keeping objective but she makes it emotional. I thought the outcome of this episode was quite far-fetched, even for Television. The only trouble was that he had no way of knowing that; his truth was that she had consented to what was in fact very aggressive pressure, but, in the way of some college boys, especially when they've been drinking, he didn't realize how aggressive he was being and how reluctant she was.
Originally derived from English common law, it is applied in two separate areas of the law. Even though in many past episodes we have seen Benson condemning other cops for accepting money for even better reasons than hers from criminals. They feel guilty, change their minds. During trial, the first rape allegation comes up but to no avail. The last witness shown is Ethan and he finally confesses to being with Mia and raping her for revenge. It might not have fit the current legal definition of rape, but there were definitely some dubious consent issues at play there, nevermind the fact they were both highly intoxicated. If they absolutely had to make Ethan the bad guy, he could have gone to the dorm and beat the hell out of Mia before she could say she was going to make it right.
I think the Benson character has had more of these type episodes than any other character in cop dramas. Benson is not Stone's subordinate. Extra barfy that he told her to come in while he was changing his shirt. When Barba first started, he would have never taken that from her. Carisi is read out by Benson and forgiven by Stone. It's important not to suggest that most rape victims are lying or that accusers shouldn't be believed, yet it's also important to acknowledge that this problem exists.
He tells her to make it right and apologize to Ethan. What's with the color commentary by the silky-voiced woman??? It all kept my interest and kept me guessing about what had really happened when and what was coming next. I think, realistically, there would have been consequences for Carisi and for Benson, for even allowing that mishigas to happen. Sure you posted this on the right board? She may have been unclear the first time, but the second time, I believe her. Esparza was getting plump at the end, and was never ripped during the past 6 yrs. Later, he is found guilty of rape in the first degree. I think that line was crossed a long time ago.
It got into the hands of the college anti-assault machinery, and, again wanting to please people, she went along with the process. Andy admits that he was in her room during the night of the assault, and that Mia told Andy that the assault was all her fault. She was a favorite character for sure. I don't think too many watchers accepted that, except for the hardcore fans of the show. Stone believes the second rape accusation but is uncomfortable going to court with so little evidence.
This reminds me also of one of Benson's episodes where her step-brother or some relative was up on attempted kidnapping charges I think and she interfered in that case too. You deserved to be fired. They should have scheduled these episodes months apart. He should have locked the door if he was changing clothes. Ethan's mother: The police said they don't have enough evidence. Stone: She's still an imperfect witness.
Are you saying you lied? The conversations she had with Stone were partly correct. I didn't understand why he was even testifying. Like Corvino said, I don't think Mia was a bad person who did something malicious, but she did do a very bad thing, and it would have been nice to see some acknowledgment of that on the parts of our protagonists.

Mia doesn't remember much and doesn't have a consistent story, and after talking to her Benson gets the sense that she may not be telling the truth.
I was very surprised where the episode went. Carisi — wrongly in my opinion — tells Mia that she should apologize to Ethan and tells her to make it right. I do remember that second or third season episode where Casey Novak and her friends raped a guy at their party, and Stabler was openly dubious of the idea that a man could be raped. I think the Benson character has had more of these type episodes than any other character in cop dramas. Carisi helps his niece move out of the dorm. Heller: Can you tell me what Mia told you about the first rape? Listen to what she says but take it with a grain of salt.
