Character creation

Actor Conor Tague is also on the autism spectrum.[2]


The Special Victims Unit gets involved at a school for special education where 19-year-old Cody is caught having sex with 15-year-old Mariel McLaughlin (who has epilepsy, learning difficulties and uses a wheelchair). Mariel says Cody raped her, though it turns out she just misunderstood what the word "rape" meant—she says she and Cody are in love and had consensual sex. Nevertheless, she's brought to the hospital for examination and Cody is brought to the police station. The ADA doesn't want to pursue charges considering the circumstances, though the detectives do uncover that Mariel's mother has Munchausen by proxy and Mariel's disabilities are a result of that.


Cody is stated to have autism during the episode.
