|Pathology|| Convicted sex offender|
|Actor||Raymond Anthony Thomas|
Owen Stokes is a suspect in the rape of eight-year-old Malika Richardson.
Stokes is a convicted sex offender on parole for attempting to assault two children. Detectives Lennie Briscoe and Rey Curtis bring him in for questioning in the Richardson case. They coerce a false confession from him by threatening to put him in the general population at Rikers Island and tell his fellow prisoners what he had supposedly done - which would be a death sentence. They eventually discover that Stokes could not have committed the crime, however, as he has been taking chemical castration drugs since his previous offense. He is exonerated and released.
