You are correct..that could occur..but the jury would then never believe him.

To put it crudely, one in the hand is worth two in the bush. Also, it may be worth quite a bit to him to avoid the civil trial and to prepay rather than fight it through. He'll avoid two high-priced lawyer sequences.

They'll go to eight figures if they have to.
If the bribing of the victim doesn't work, watch for the socialist scumbag to seek a plea deal in which it is agreed between the governments that he will serve his incarceration in France.
If he can have his incarceration handled by the French government it will be a much different incarceration than for the average rapist.

Nope... Not federal charges. Now, if you said Governor Cuomo, I might buy into that...
Jury trials occur in the real world...if DSK argues that it was consensual, the proverbial “he said, she said,”..that’s an affirmative defense, and I can’t recall any case where the defendant in that scenario did NOT take the stand..
I understand what you are saying, but he is not the one to decide if there is a civil suit or not.
I guess it’s the price.
