Gary Munson is a prison guard and a serial rapist-turned-cop killer.

Background[edit | edit source]

Munson has sexually assaulted prisoners in the past, with most not being believed. He claims during most of his rapes that he is a happily married man. He is the father of two children, a boy and a girl. He may have passed an STD on to his wife prior to the allegations as there is no definitive answer to when the assaults began. He claims that he has a sick mother to another corrections officer, while stealing overtime with the female corrections officer.

On SVU[edit | edit source]

Munson sees one of his former prisoners walking the street, and arrests her. He takes her away and rapes her. The victim calls Tutuola's son, and the case is taken from there. The victim goes undercover and is almost raped again. He is arrested, but with very dangerous contacts, the case becomes more dangerous and Barba is threatened to be killed outside the court. (SVU: "Intersecting Lives") Following the reveal of his lies about his clock-out times to his wife, she tests for STDs as suggested by Benson and hints towards having contracted one from her husband. She then begins to speak to a divorce lawyer, however Munson's ties to the union results in his knowledge of this despite her attempts to keep it hidden. He threatens her that she will not leave him and invades her phone to see who had been calling her. He later took his wife and Sgt. Mike Dodds hostage in his own home. Dodds tried to wrestle the gun away from Munson, and Munson ended up shooting him. Munson is arrested while Dodds later died from his injuries. (SVU: "Heartfelt Passages")
