20 Law & Order: SVU Episodes That Were Ripped From The Headlines
“SICK,” SEASON 5, EPISODE 19
This is another one of those Law & Order: SVU episodes that was blatantly taken from the headlines. While they obviously put their own spin on things, these episodes are always kind of unnecessary because, well, we all know what happens.In “Sick,” a rich and well-known billionaire is accused of molestation by the child of one of his employees, and more children slowly come forward. However, the families signed a confidentiality agreement, making it impossible for the children to testify. This episode was pretty clearly about the assault allegations against Michael Jackson. The fictional court case even brought to light evidence from the real case that didn’t make it to trial.
