I hurt so bad, and I just wanted someone else to hurt as bad as I did.
~ Deacon Brinn making excuses for molesting children.

Deacon Brinn is the secondary antagonist of the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode "Quarry".

He is a former victim of pedophile Lucas Biggs who grew up to be a pedophile as well. He molested and murdered seven-year-old Jeffrey Ronson when he was 13, and went on to abuse dozens of little boys, including his own son.

He was portrayed by Terry Serpico, who also played Earl Danzinger in The Purge: Election Year and Captain Turner in Cobra Kai.



In 1980, 13-year-old Brinn was molested by his Little League coach, Lucas Biggs. The abuse Brinn suffered warped him, and he began molesting younger children to make someone weaker than him feel as degraded and powerless as he did. His first known victims were seven-year-old Avery Shaw and his seven-year-old neighbor, Jeffrey Ronson, whom he ended up murdering when the boy threatened to tell his parents. Brinn then made Shaw help him bury Jeffrey's body in a nearby quarry, threatening to hurt him to keep him quiet. Suspicion fell on Biggs after he was sentenced to death for killing one of his victims, but no one was able to prove that her murdered Jeffrey.

As an adult, Brinn went to college and married a woman named Sarah, with whom he had a son, Zeke, who would eventually become one of his victims. He molested dozens of other little boys, as well, recording the abuse so he could watch it later and relive the experience.


In 2005, Jeffrey's remains are discovered in the quarry, and Special Victims Unit Detective Olivia Benson interviews everyone who knew him, including Biggs, who is awaiting execution. Biggs denies killing Jeffrey, but admits to molesting Brinn. When Benson confronts him, Brinn breaks down in tears when recalling the abuse, but says he doesn't know anything about Jeffrey's murder; he also implies that Biggs must have done it.

Soon afterward, Brinn is found dead in a nearby train yard, his body cut in half by a train. Benson assumes Brinn committed suicide because he couldn't deal with the memories of the abuse he suffered. However, an autopsy reveals that Brinn was shot before being hit by the train, and further investigation of the Jeffrey Ronson crime scene uncovers chewing gum with Brinn's DNA on it. Benson realizes that Brinn killed Jeffrey, and either committed suicide out of guilt or was murdered by someone who knows what he did.

Benson discovers that Shaw had been stalking and mailing letters to Brinn threatening to expose him, so she thinks that Shaw killed him. It is also revealed Shaw sent letters to Benson on this after stalking her too. When Shaw was arrested, he readily confesses to killing Brinn not because he wanted revenge, but because Brinn was sexually abusing children and had to be stopped. Unsatisfied, Benson, along with her SVU colleague John Munch and crime scene technician Ryan O'Halloran search Brinn's house, where they find videotapes of Brinn sexually abusing boys, including his own son, Zeke.

In one of the tapes, Shaw is shown breaking into Brinn's house with a gun, demanding to know why Brinn raped him when he was a child. Brinn replies that he had been so traumatized by Biggs' abuse that he had wanted to inflict his pain on someone else. In court, Shaw says that he had killed Brinn, but Benson sees on the tape that he had left Brinn alive. Moments later on the tape, the detectives see Brinn receiving a phone call that seemed to upset him, before leaving the house. Benson looks through Brinn's phone records, and finds that his wife, Sarah, had called him the night of his death.

Benson interrogates Julia, who says that her marriage to Brinn had been on the rocks for years, to the point that he had briefly moved out. When Zeke told her what Brinn did to him, she called her husband, demanding to know the truth. Brinn drove to their house and threatened to shoot Julia, but got distracted when Zeke started crying, allowing Julia to grab the gun. When she threatened to kill him, Brinn admitted that he had abused Zeke, and promised to move away and never bother them again. Nevertheless, an enraged Sarah forced him into her car and drove him to the train yard, shot him dead, and put his body on the tracks so it would be run over and it would look like he killed himself.

Sarah is arrested, Shaw is released, and Biggs is executed on schedule.
