~ Steve Getz about young girls.

Steve Getz is the main antagonist of the two-part Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode "Can't Be Held Accountable" and "Must Be Held Accountable". He is a wealthy, well-connected pedophile who uses his money and political influence to rape young girls and get away with it.

He was portrayed by Vincent Kartheiser, who also portrayed the Scarecrow in Titans.


Getz is the billionaire founder and CEO of Give Me That Body, a modeling agency that specializes in young, female models. He and his girlfriend and "talent scout" Granya Marcil regularly ensnare young girls with money and expensive presents so Getz can rape them. He then buys their silence by writing checks to their parents.

"Can't Be Held Accountable"

Marcil meets teenager Ivy Bucci outside her apartment and invites her to one of Getz's lavish parties. There, she meets Getz, who immediately offers to sign her to the agency and begins grooming her by showering her with gifts and attention. He also grooms her mother, Molly, by promising to make her daughter a star. He then invites her to a private photo shoot, where he talks her into posing topless, and ultimately rapes her. After he is done, he gives her $100 and asks her to bring her younger sister Milly to his next party.

The following day, Ivy runs away from home, and her father, NYPD detective Frank Bucci, goes to the Special Victims Unit and tells Detective Amanda Rollins that Ivy ran away because Getz is abusing her. Detective Kat Tamin finds Ivy and brings her home, and then goes undercover as her socialite aunt to Getz's mansion, where she convinces Marcil that she is looking to pimp Milly out to Getz. Marcil gives Tamin a $10,000 "finders fee", and tells her to bring Milly to Getz the following day.

Assistant District Attorney Dominick Carisi Jr. tells the SVU detectives that they need more proof of Getz's crimes to make a case against him, so Lieutenant Olivia Benson follows Getz to his private club and brings him to the SVU precinct so she and Detective Fin Tutuola can question him. Getz denies any wrongdoing, and smugly claims that he gives young girls modeling jobs out of the goodness of his heart. Meanwhile, Ivy is attacked and beaten up by two men, which Benson suspects, but cannot prove, that they are working for Getz. The SVU detectives then get a search warrant for Getz's mansion, where they find several nude pictures of underage girls. They then arrest Getz and Marcil on rape and child pornography charges.

Getz's lawyer, Peter Abrams, makes a deal with Carisi in which Getz, who is facing 25 years to life in prison, will plead guilty to lesser charges, serve a four-year sentence, and register as a sex offender. Bucci refuses to take the deal, however, demanding that Getz be tried to the full extent of the law and go to prison for the rest of his life. Carisi makes a strong case against Getz, but the judge, Joe Ellory, dismisses the indictment, saying that Ivy consented to have sex with Getz, despite being too young to legally do so. Getz goes home a free man, and throws himself a victory party on one of his many yachts, with Milly and her mother as guests. Outraged, Bucci kidnaps Rollins in a desperate attempt to force SVU to rearrest Getz.

"Must Be Held Accountable"

After Benson and Fin rescue Rollins and arrest Bucci, Tamin learns from Ivy that Ellory is a fixture at Getz's parties, where he has had sex with several underage girls. SVU Bureau Chief Christian Garland concocts a plan to get to Getz by threatening Ellory with prison unless he becomes an informant. He goes to talk to Abrams while wearing a wire tap, and tells him that he fears the police are on to him and Getz. Realizing that Abrams will alert Getz, Carisi forces Ellory to grant him a search warrant for the corrupt attorney's office, Abrams is arrested on child pornography charges because he possesses photos of Getz's trysts with underage girls, and makes a deal for legal immunity in return for informing on Getz.

The detectives rearrest Getz, who threatens to implicate several of the public officials who frequent his parties unless Carisi gives him a deal. Carisi refuses, however, and prosecutes him to the full extent of the law. This time, Getz is found guilty of rape and possession of child pornography and sentenced to life in prison. Defeated, Getz hangs himself in his cell.


  • Getz is loosely based on the late hedge fund billionaire and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. Like Getz, Epstein used his wealth and political connections to rape and traffic underage girls, with the complicity of his girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell. Also like Getz, Epstein was eventually arrested and found guilty of multiple sex offenses and hanged himself in his prison cell. The episode even includes a nod to various conspiracy theories surrounding Epstein's death, as following Getz's suicide, Tamin speculates that he may have been murdered or even faked his own death.
