Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

Military Justice - S15-E8

Factual error: The episode took a lot of liberties to further the plot when Amelia Albers was arrested by the Coast Guard in ADA Barba's office. While the story mentioned a real controversial military pamphlet on how victims should respond to a sexual assault, at the time the episode took place the military was under a massive investigation over sexual assaults by Washington, was being publicly criticized for a lack of assault victim support, and had a bill going through Congress to make it easier for victims to report their attackers. There is no way any military prosecutor would have been given clearance to charge Amelia with adultery or fraternization while the men she was accused of sleeping with were charged with gang-raping her. Doing so would bring a lot of unwanted bad press as well as a congressional investigation on the Coast Guard that would almost certainly want to know why they are attempting to cover up a rape by charging the victim instead, especially when the rape victim was an admiral's daughter.

Mistakes

When Amanda and Fin are in Atlanta following up on their rape case they walk past several cars with visible Georgia license plates mounted on the front. Georgia is a rear plate-only state, and wouldn't have had plates mounted on the front of the cars as shown here.

Trivia

As the detectives are trying to find out from Doug Hutchinson's character where the victim is being held, the detectives find out he is somewhat claustrophobic. They decide to scare him and put him in a cupboard without any light. This is very similar to Doug Hutchinson's character in The Green Mile. The main characters decide to punish him and force him into a dark and small room.
