A teen with no ID found beaten and apparently raped dies in ER. Benson & Stabler spend all day trying to identify the victim, who turns out to be the stepdaughter of a local judge. Further investigation reveals the victim to have become a mother four years ago, and be a pen pal of inmates sent to prison by her stepfather.
Did You Know?
Cragen notes that one of the convicts the victim was writing to was in prison for first degree manslaughter and that he was given the maximum sentence and served "12 of the 15 years of his sentence". 15 years is not the maximum sentence for manslaughter in the first degree, it is a class B felony meaning it carries a maximum sentence of 25 years. 15 years is the maximum sentence for a class C felony, such as manslaughter in the second degree.
