~ Kenneth Cleary bragging about raping women.

Kenneth Cleary is a recurring antagonist in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, appearing in the episodes "Closure" and "Closure Part II". He is a serial rapist who preys on women in the New York, Philadelphia and Washington D.C. areas.

He was portrayed by Neil Maffin.

Biography

Closure

Cleary is introduced as a suspect in the rapes of Harper Anderson and Jane Tyler. While he presents an image of a wealthy, successful family man, with a wife, Meredith, and a young son, he is in fact a sadist who breaks into women's apartments and rapes them while sneering "Is this how you like it?".

The SVU detectives investigate him and come to believe that he is responsible for dozens of rapes across several states, and bring him in to their precinct for a lineup. However, neither Anderson nor Tyler is able to identify him. Even though detectives Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler are convinced he is guilty, they are forced to let him go.

"Closure Part II"

A year and a half later, Cleary is still raping women and using the same M.O., though by now he has started wearing a mask to avoid being arrested again.

Anderson has been stalking Cleary and his wife since he was released, complicating SVU's ongoing investigation of him. She witnesses him raping a woman, but after she smashes up his car with a crowbar, ADA Alexandra Cabot declines to let her testify against him in court, dismissing her as an unreliable witness.

Cleary's luck finally runs out when Meredith realizes that jewelry he had given her was in fact stolen property, as he had robbed his victims and given her the jewelry to relive what he had done to them, even insisting that she wear it when they have sex. Horrified, Meredith agrees to testify against her husband. However, the judge decides that her testimony violates spousal privilege and declares a mistrial. That night, Meredith shoots Cleary dead in their home.
