Time for the other guy's crimes
22 March 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

David Keith guest stars as Detective John Hawkins on this SVU episode, a man who made his bones as a detective catching a serial killer and now after 18 years he's out on parole. And some sex murders with the same MO are starting to happen again.

In the meantime Chris Meloni is feeling real down about all the good he thinks he's not doing after a case he worked on went south when the killer was acquitted and killed again. He's now teamed with Keith working with the squad.

But as it turns out the man that he sent away was really innocent. Now both of these guys have to redouble their efforts to find the real killer. And the evidence better be rock solid as Stephanie March points out the first guy's conviction makes it harder to convict a second perpetrator.

Kevin Chamberlin plays the original suspect who did the time for the other guy's crime. He plays Bertram the butler on the Disney series Jessie currently. This pathetic man, a delivery man for a florist shop gives Chamberlin a role totally different than his Disney part.

Nice episode, don't miss it.
