This case is beginning to shape up as slamdunk not guilty verdict. Roger Simon comments on it here better than I can. A doctor made an interesting comment on a Roger Simon's post:
As a physician, I see many "date rape" cases. I often advise the women to report the cases, but not to prosecute because (1) the evidence won't hold up and (2) it is a "he said she said" and she will be trashed. The evidence of vaginal trauma usually suggests rape, but if she has evidence of sex with two men, the implication is not that she is a slut, but legally that there is no way to prove which of the men caused the trauma.The prosecutor had better hope the defense attorneys aren't aware of this since it is alleged that the young woman had sex with 1 or 2 men a few days prior to this incident.
Before I knew of any of the facts other than that the girl went to his room, I thought that Bryant was going to be a free man. Without evidence of being forcibly raped not many juries would convict a man and send him to jail when the woman willingly went to the man's hotel room late at night. We now know more about what actually happened that night and it is apparent from what has been revealed so far that the young lady more than willingly went to Bryant's room.
