When an Assistant DA from the Bronx, and one of Olivia's ex boyfriends, Jeff York is found dead in his car in a known hooker stroll, Benson and Stabler are called to the scene. They start to piece together evidence to find out what happened just before his death. At first, because of the location, they think that he might have solicited a hooker, who went to far. Evidence points to the fact that there was another male in the car with him, and the DNA does not match any of the prostitutes in the area. They find that Jeff and his friends have a little club where they have sex with other men, which is also known as being on the down low. When M.E. Warner determines that Jeff had HIV, she suggests that Olivia get tested as well, because of her past relationship with him.
This is a good episode. It is another storyline that is ripped from the headlines. I first became aware of this issue of married men sleeping with other men behind their wives backs on Oprah. I was really surprised when it showed up on an episode of Law and Order SVU.
