Re: Wrongly Convicted Player Released After 5 Years In Prison
Maybe the evidentiary level should be a bit higher to charge someone, even for rape?
There is no crime that I could just walk into a police station and get a person arrested for solely on my statement.
But for rape, an illiterate, lying,conniving, mass breeding, welfare collecting, 16 year old street tramp can get you some serious time just on her 'word'.
What was the evidence that made the defense lawyer advise a ple bargain? There apparently was no sex, so no DNA, no bodily fluids, no bruises, nada.
But the police brought this to the lawyer industry anyway and away Mr Banks went.
Lawyer prosecutors prosecuted with no evidence. Lawyer defense counsel advised a plea bargain without looking at the evidence. Lawyer judge, the supposed last line of defense, sentences, no questions asked.
Lawyer for the mother of the 'victim' sues. Lawyer for the city settles.
All this with not one shred of evidence. Scary!
There are many more culpable people here than just the wench.
Now the same adults who used the statement of a 16 year old to put away an innocent man are looking at prosecuting the accuser.
None of those in power here probably have even the slightest belief that they are the people really responsible for this whole travesty.
