Ricky Yao is a pimp and murderer.
Ricky is a pimp who specialized in immigrants, particularly Asians. He claims to Detectives Benson and Stabler that he runs a dating website after a mother goes missing. However, through further investigation, it becomes clear that Ricky was murdering his prostitutes. He is interrogated and is offered deals by ADA Novak and the detectives, but he claims he did nothing wrong. He is later sent to prison for life for his crimes after several Asian prostitute immigrants are found in his care, tortured, injured, and traumatized. (SVU: "Debt")
