Sergeant Tom Cole was a retired police sergeant and a suspect in the rape of Quinn Berris, who he saved from a stalker named Ray Wilson four years ago. After raping Berris, he attempted to frame Wilson for the crime through planted DNA evidence, but SVU detectives saw through this after a lengthy investigation.

Realizing this, Cole kidnapped Berris and took her to his brother's farmhouse in Harding Township, New Jersey. After a standoff at the farmhouse, he was shot to death by Lieutenant Olivia Benson after he attempted to shoot Detective Dominick Carisi, Jr. (SVU: "Next Chapter")
