Roger and his wife Alexis have kidnapped several children and exploited them for child pornography. When a boy goes missing in 2014, the Special Victims Unit detectives find out his mother gave him away to Roger and his wife. Detectives Benson, Rollins, Tutuola and Amaro find the boy and several other children being used in a pornography video. Roger is later arrested at a hotel, where he has been hiding with the children in the video and a teenage girl. (One of the hostage children is an infant named Noah, whom Benson later adopts.) Roger is arrested and the children are sent to foster care, apart from the boy, who is returned to his parents.
Roger Pearson is a criminal mastermind who makes money from child pornography videos, most of them on VHS. He also defrauds the government by pretending to be paralyzed and collecting disability checks. He has been able to evade the police for years by traveling around country with Alexis and the children, living in and out of hotels.
