SVU investigates the pregnancy of thirteen-year old Ella to determine if she is the victim of a sex crime. Initially, she refuses to name the father of her child, but Benson and Amaro find out that the son of Ambassador Andrew Raines allegedly raped Ella after getting her drunk at a party.
Ella refuses to get an abortion and believes she will end up married to Tripp, Raines' son, despite his outright dismissal. The Raines family refuses to believe her story, but turn to the police for help when their son goes missing.
Tripp's body is found in central park and the detectives question Ella's friend Arturo, who happens to be the son of the Raines' former maid and was the last person to talk to Tripp. Arturo admits that he found out Andrew Raines was his father, but instead of getting the love and acceptance of his father, he and his mother were forced to move out of the house with a huge settlement. He admits to meeting with Tripp in the park and killing him because he was upset with being cast aside and bought off by the Raines family.
