Plot Edit

Tandi McCain is found beaten and duct-taped under a bench in a newly constructed dormitory. She claims that she was raped by three army cadet students. Eventually Stabler comes to believe that her step-father raped her, but after he punches Stabler for it, giving a nose bleed, Stabler starts to believe he's innocent as he would've reacted the same way if he'd been accused of raping his own daughter. Tandi withdraws her accusations and claims she made it all up so Cragen has her arrested as she's been lying all along about something, whether it was being raped or not. Benson believes that her step-dad put her up to recanting her rape allegations and Stabler is able to convince her father to let Benson talk to her alone. Tandi reveals she lied as she's afraid for her step-dad not of him and when she describes the threats against him, he realizes that it's his boss Mike Tucker. His actions fit as the possible rapist and he's arrested. At the trial, the defense successfully makes it look like Tandi's lying again and Tucker is found not guilty. Despite losing, Tandi feels good at having confronted her rapist. Tandi's courage to face Tucker and try to bring him to justice causes another girl named Allison to approach Stabler and Benson after the trial and report her own rape by Tucker six months before, giving the police another shot at bringing him to justice.
