|~ Siobhan Miller bragging about using her body to con men|
Siobhan Miller is the main antagonist of the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode "Taken". She is a con artist who fakes being raped in order to collect a large settlement from a luxury hotel.
She was portrayed by Jenna Lamia.
Siobhan was born into a family of con artists, and for the most part raised herself after her parents were imprisoned for fraud. Her M.O. was to seduce men and then accuse them of rape so they would pay her to keep quiet. She was usually assisted in her scams by her older brother Beau, their second cousin Kyle Kivlahan, and Beau's wife Patricia Ann.
She eventually tired of petty scams and decides to go for "the big time", to bilk the Thorpe Palace luxury hotel out of millions. After Beau got a room key from Kivlahan, who worked at the hotel under the alias "Terry Wilde", she picked sex offender Russell Ramsay for a patsy and propositioned him at a bar, giving him the key. Ramsay went to her room and they had sex. After he left, she had Patricia Ann beat her up to make it look like Ramsey had raped and brutalized her.
During the hotel's grand opening party, Siobhan stumbled out of the elevator, claiming to have been raped. She tells Special Victims Unit Detectives Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler that Ramsay broke into her room and raped her, and that she is 17 in order to fit his documented predilection for teenage girls, although she is in fact 23. Kivlahan, meanwhile, claims to have seen Ramsay exiting her room. Soon enough, the detectives arrest Ramsay, and Siobhan identifies him as her rapist.
Benson and Stabler become suspicious of Siobhan's story after they find out Kivlahan's true identity, and the fact that he and Beau had done time at the same juvenile detention facilities. When they learn that Beau and Siobhan are suing the hotel for $10 million, they realize that they and Kivlahan fabricated the rape in order to scam the hotel.
SVU Captain Donald Cragen goes undercover as the manager of the hotel and invites the Millers to one of the penthouse suites under the pretense of giving them the promised money. When Siobhan and Beau sign the checks, Benson and Stabler suddenly appear and arrest them for fraud and grand larceny. Siobhan pleads innocence at first, and then says that Beau forced her to take part in the scam. When she sees that the detectives don't believe her, she drops her act and asks for a deal.
Believing that Beau concocted the scheme, Assistant District Attorney Alex Cabot reluctantly makes a deal with Siobhan to testify against her brother in return for probation in lieu of prison time. Even after the detectives learn from Beau and Patricia Ann that Siobhan was the brains behind the con, Cabot is powerless to undo the deal.
Things change, however, when Ramsey is raped and murdered in prison. During her allocution, Siobhan admits that Ramsay did not rape her, and that she used him as part of her plan to defraud the hotel. Much to her surprise, Benson and Stabler then arrest her for first-degree manslaughter, reasoning that her lies led directly to Ramsay's death. Siobhan is then sentenced to 15 years in prison.
