Tanya explains that West seemed nice at first and helped her upstairs and got her cleaned up. She remembers the sound of him opening his zipper and she tried to push him off but he held her down. He came back twice that night and the next day she spoke with Officer Groves who took her to his Lieutenant. That night, West showed up at her apartment angry and said she was a drunk slut and she should be smart and should keep her mouth shut.
She knew she could not trust the lieutenant and she thought Officer Groves was on her side. Benson explains that he was. Rollins and Fin have West in interrogation and he claims he was entrapped and set up and he wants his PBA rep and lawyer. Fin tells him good luck with that, Quinn is giving him up right now. West says she is not. Meanwhile, Amaro is questioning Quinn, telling her it is all on her, she held the gun on Cassidy and made the calls. She denies it but Benson walks in and Amaro asks if she can believe this, a female officer covers for her partner while he assaults drunk civilians.
Benson asks if West has something on her, and if he does, she suggests she tells them because he is in there right now ratting her out. As the only detective on the case, he has to appear in court to testify against the offender.

ADA Abbie Carmichael questions him about the events that lead to the offense. Cassidy is extremely nervous during his time in the witness stand. Defense attorney Hawkins takes advantage of Cassidy's nervousness and lack of sophistication. When Hawkins asks him about the technical term for fondling a stranger, Cassidy comes up with the answer "fromage".
The answer was supposed to be frottage. The two had a drunken one night stand and Brian was left wanting to start a relationship with Olivia. Olivia feels that she has broken her personal rule of not getting involved with your co-workers.
When he starts to come close to her, she decides to end the relationship.
