Leon Tate was a registered sex offender.


Leon had eleven arrests, nine of which were for arson, and no convictions prior to his thirteenth birthday. As a child, he tortured animals and set fires. He served five years in prison for sodomizing underage girls. While in prison, he was diagnosed as a sociopath.

Two weeks after his release, Leon, who tested positive for the HIV virus, was arrested by Detectives Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler before he and a fourteen-year-old girl would have sex on a rooftop.

He was charged with attempted statutory rape, but the charges were later dropped due to a lack of evidence.

Leon was also a suspect in multiple rapes and murders, but just as he was about to be arrested for attempting to have sex with another underage girl, he succumbed to a drug overdose and died. The real perpetrator, Malik "King" Harris, was later identified, arrested, and executed for the crimes. (SVU: "Rooftop")
