|First Appearance||"Traumatic Wound"|
Alec Peters is a popular student who had his friends set up his ex-girlfriend Gabby Shaw to be gang-raped for breaking up with him.
Peters, Britt Yardley, and Jake Swenders were longtime friends, with Shaw also being a member of the group while she was still dating Alec. However, Peters started to get jealous and possessive of her. As a result, Shaw broke up with him in order to save herself. When she announced her intention to break up with him, Peters told her that she was making the biggest mistake of her life and that nobody breaks up with him. Afterwards, he got his friends to ostracize her.
Traumatic Wound Edit
Peters later forms a plan to get revenge on Shaw by having his friends set her up to be raped. Peters tells them to start being nice to Shaw again and eventually invite her to a concert. He also has Yardley pick a yellow dress for Shaw, under which she cannot be able to wear a bra. Then, he gets a fellow student, Ralph Priatti, to grab her top and pull it down at the concert so that she would be topless in front of a crowd of aggressive and drunk men. In addition, they get Ralph's older brother Louis to videotape the incident. On the night of the show, Peters' plan is put into motion and works to the last detail, resulting in at least six men sexually assaulting Gabby, all of which was recorded by Louis.
When Peters and the others get the video from Louis, they post it on their boarding school's website so that other students can see the gang-rape. After Ralph discovers that Peters orchestrated everything, Detectives Amaro and Rollins question Peters and he denies any involvement. They ask to look through his text messages, which he allows, but they deduce there may be messages that were deleted. When they tell him that their technicians are capable of retrieving deleted texts, he admits to giving Louis $500, but claims that it had nothing to do with Shaw's gang-rape, and that he was not affected by Shaw breaking up with him.
When Peters, Swenders, and Yardley are brought to court under negligent rape charges, Frank Patterson, a U.S. Army veteran-turned-concert bouncer, serves as a key witness for Barba. However, their shared attorney tries to use Patterson's fragmented memory to discredit him, which causes him to remember someone who took a video of the gang-rape. When the detectives find Louis, they question him and he eventually tells them about how Peters and his friends posted the video on the Internet. With the video as evidence against them, Peters, Yardley, and Swenders decide to plead guilty to conspiracy to commit aggravated sexual assault. (SVU: "Traumatic Wound")
