Juan Respetro was a soldier and the biological father of Angela Candela, an adopted child who was the subject of a kidnapping case.
Although he agreed to the original adoption plan when his then-girlfriend Lucia Gomez told him that she was pregnant while he was off in Iraq, he sustained an injury during combat duty that would make it impossible for him to father children in the future. As a result, when he returned to New York, he attempted to track Angela down in order to at least see the only child he would ever have, although his efforts briefly made him a suspect in his daughter's kidnapping as he faked his ex-girlfriend's signature to get permission to access the adoption records.
