~ Eric confessing to having pedophilic urges toward his five-year-old stepbrother.

Eric Byers is the secondary antagonist of the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode "Confession". He is a teenage pedophile who confesses to Special Victims Unit detective Olivia Benson that he is having sexual urges toward his five-year-old stepbrother, Corey.

He was portrayed by Marshall Allman.


Early Life

Byers is a socially inept, friendless teenage boy who lives with his mother, Dana, his stepfather, Sean Kelley, and his five-year-old stepbrother, Cory. Soon after his mother remarries, Eric discovers that he is sexually attracted to little boys, and begins having intense sexual feelings for Cory. Terrified and guilt-ridden over his desires, which he claims to know are wrong, he begins drinking heavily, which worsens his already rocky relationship with his stepfather.

He goes online searching for other people attracted to children but unwilling to act on their feelings, and finds the website Pediaphax, which features suggestive, but non-pornographic, images of children for pedophiles to use to relieve their sexual urges without breaking the law. He emails the website's founder, Jake Berlin, asking for help in managing his pedophilic urges. Berlin, who claims to have never molested a child, assures him that he too can be a "virtuous pedophile", and emails him suggestive pictures of little boys.


Eventually, Eric's urges become so overpowering that he fears he will hurt Corey, so he goes to the Special Victims Unit's precinct and tells Detective Olivia Benson about his desires. He asks her to put him in a therapy program for pedophiles, but Benson says that such programs are only available for pedophiles who have been convicted of sexually abusing children. While the detectives at SVU are concerned that Eric will eventually act on his urges, all they can do is monitor his behavior.

Benson talks to Dana, who is so horrified and disgusted to learn of Eric's pedophilia that she kicks him out of her house. Meanwhile, Benson and her partner, Detective Elliot Stabler, interview Berlin, who tells them that Eric had posted on Pediaphax, and that he had warned the boy that he would contact the police if any of the site's users sexually abused children.

Benson and Stabler try to monitor Eric, but he manages to give them the slip until they find out that he has been staying at a motel. They and Dana arrive there to find Eric has been brutally sodomized and murdered. As she cradles her son's dead body, Dana sobs that she loved him, and that she is glad he is dead.

Benson and Stabler then find that Eric had acted on his urges, raped a little boy, and bragged about it on Pediaphax. They discover how he died, and Sean, believing Eric had molested Corey, sodomized him with a baseball bat to "give him a taste of his own medicine", and moments later Berlin slit Eric's throat because he was jealous that Eric had actually done what he could only fantasize about. Berlin goes to prison, but the identity of Eric's victim is never discovered.
