STEUBENVILLE - Jefferson County Prosecutor Jane Hanlin and her family had to leave town during the juvenile rape trial because of threats made against both her and her family.

Sunday evening, Hanlin confirmed that threats had been made, and she found them to be credible. Hanlin said there were instances of threats before, but the number of threats of a specific nature grew.

"As the trial date grew closer, we received a number of them that seemed to be more credible than others," Hanlin said.

I guess sociopaths are not capable of recognizing sociopathic behavior.

Or perhaps witch hunters can never be wrong because they have God on their side....

Aren’t you confusing things?

Isn’t the girl supposed to be the witch who seduced the boys and caused all their troubles?

I think papertyger's a wannabe lawyer with the bad rendition of the Socratic method. It doesn't work when the statutes are clear and uncontroversial. Some people think a majority of claims are "regrets after the fact" cases and are very biased with that and false claims like Duke LaCrosse. Some claims are like that. This ain't one of them and people like the two convicts are more common than people think. I know a similar guy who just did 5 years in Ohio. He was guilty as sin (and plead that way). Some eerily similarities too except he wasn't a football player.

Like I said, I'm going with moron.

I (along with GSD Lover) ask for links and information proving you are right about your assertions that the girl is as guilty as the guys, and you send me to post #181, then #184, neither of which have anything to do with what I (or GSD Lover) asked for.

I'm thinking you aren't capable of a sane discussion, so I'm outta heret.

Don't let the door hit you on the way out......

“Would you say that to AppyPappy’s face?”

He’s the one who started slinging insults not I. Go back and read the exchange. I was very respectful and the worst thing I said was “your being stupid, you know I didn’t say that”. In spite of being called a Muslim, an Islamic and Mohammad...

“Getting passed out does not give permission”

If you read my posts, you’ll find that I didn’t say that it did. Quite the contrary... I said it didn’t excuse the boy’s actions.

Alcohol lowers inhibitions in both sexes. Even id a young woman doesn’t pass out she’s still in grave danger going down the path she apparently chose.

She ran into the perfect storm. She passed out and was in the company of low life’s that were also drunk. However in either case, the results were similar and predictable.

She must have been aware that that was where it was going, if she had any experience dating at all. That’s why I suggested she was a slut.

“That’s why I suggested she was a slut.”

So if you got passed out drunk in a bar with a bunch of buddies and they decided to stick anything stiff in your rectum and take turns doing it, videotaping it, posting it on the internet, should we all suggest that you were just a rectal slut?

If you re-read my post, you will see that I didn’t make a statement about his daughter. I ask a question of him?

Frankly it’s odd to me that he would defend this stranger girl to the point of calling me vile names.

I was at a dinner party about nine or ten years ago with other adults (no one under 30) and drank ONE glass of wine which made me need to go and collapse on a bed. There were only about ten people there (all co-workers of a girlfriend of mine, who I was with) and this was certainly no sex/drug/rock and roll get together. . .seriously, a dinner party with men AND women (equally mixed). I am a regular drinker, and certainly have NEVER had that sort of reaction from alcohol (regular drinker, not excessive drinker). Thank god my girlfriend was keeping an eye on the door of the bedroom I was passed out in because one of the guys came into the room and began kissing me when she came in behind him.
We immediately left and got into a cab, and she had to get my HUSBAND (who was home watching the kids) to get me out of the taxi and bring me into the house. I called a doctor friend the next morning who was emphatic that it was the date-rape drug, but because it passes through your system so quickly, there would be no way to prove it.

I certainly didn’t flirt with any of the guys or in other ways suggest I was interested, and boy (!) was it hard to explain to my husband. (Which really sucked since I was a certainly an unwilling participant).

A teenager who didn’t have experience drinking could ABSOLUTELY be completely unconscious while being raped if she had been given whatever I was given. There is no doubt in my mind that the one glass of wine I drank was dosed with something.

I followed some links here on FR earlier to day and was shocked to find a lot of information that has not been in the mainstream media.

The facebook, IM and email messages of the kids at the high school are posted on those links.

Apparently the girl broke up with one of the boys a couple of months earlier. The boy was furious and said he was going to get revenge on the “bitch”. For over a month they plotted to get her to go to a party. One of the boys’ girlfriends got her to go to this party and apparently slipped her a date rape drug. She was totally sober but shortly after was unconscious.

Hopefully the real story will come out. The verbatim transcripts of the email messages are chilling.

BTW the boy she broke up with, his family has a lot of money. They got the charges dropped. I guess it’s the poor kids who are being charged.

A girl getting drunk and passing out (she thinks they did a date rape drug) is not punishable by gang rape by the perverts on the football team.

I live in NYC. Any woman that thinks she’s attractive, even if she has a boyfriend, will continue to dress as if she’s single. Society is indeed going down a slope that’s incredibly difficult to crawl back up from.

Consentual sex has nothing to do with rape, or as you say “boys just like to have sex.” You can not consent to sex when you are passed out. Boys can get raped, too, you know.

Perverts are usually that by “sexual orientation” and they usually re-offend. It’s okay to have them on a pervert sex offender list.

Five shot’s worth of any hard liquor of choice, paired with not having eaten anything for a few hours before. It’s entirely possible.

Interesting, though I wonder if you are blending two different things. Woman who take pride in their appearence will dress that way, whether married or not.

As for society going down hill, fast, of that I agree.

It also raises the question that if she’d wanted to do the team why does it matter if she were conscious or not?

This is Springfield Reformer’s Answer:
Nót really. Competency is an important legal concept and these exact scenarios are a familiar topic in crim law. Tort too. Bottom line, its about consent. If a person can’t or won’t give consent, for any reason, its rape. Drugs and alcohol are well known to impair judgement, and without capacity for ordinary good judgment, you can’t assign consent. This is true even if the impairment is just being a little too young. You can have a fully aware person who actually wants to participate, but the law will deem their judgment impaired by their youth, making consent a legal impossibility. Statutory rape. So this is why the defense was trying to find some point on the drunkenness spectrum where he could claim she was not yet impaired. He needed that to get consent. Apparently that strategy was unsuccessful.

And logically, on this occasion, she didn’t ‘do’ the whole team. Some of the team members ‘did’ her. You want to feed yourself everyday. What does it matter if you lift the forkful of food to your mouth and swallow it or if I hold your gullet open and slide down a small, dead garden snake 3 times a day?

A very odd thing when you consider that, these days (to say nothing of my own day)you have to be some kind of real loser not to be able to “pick up” a willing female.

Or just not care about it. I don't, and like the fact that the only medication I take is for an endocrine disease. Tried it, it was boring, the time would've been better spent reading a book.

Had my share of run-ins (sure felt like a run over by a truck, too) with too much alcohol, both liquor and beer.

For everybody wondering, yes, it’s entirely possible to get yourself trashed in a short amount of time. I’m a small guy with a low tolerance and I’ve done it to myself plenty of times.

When I wrote that, I was thinking about 2 rapper deaths which were on tv programs. I had vaguely heard of Tupac and Biggie but never heard their music so I looked them up. I was absolutely disgusted by the lyrics I found. Why do/did parents let their teens listen to that junk? Like I said, give me Perry Como, Pat Boone, The Kingston Trio, Doris Day, and all the other wonderful singers from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. I have listened to singers I had never heard of but were great. The station is on tunein and is called gotradio forever 50’s. The music is so relaxing.

“Sheesh. Rape isn’t about sex.”

If someone wants “control” a conscious victim is required.

As far as I’m concerned that date-repe drug is largely used by losers whose personality will chase any half decent female away fast. I well remember the sort of losers who would consider a date-rape drug christmas in toyland.

Nope.

Rapes is an evolutionary reproduction strategy, with sex and impregnation as the evolutionary pay-off for doing it, i.e., the rapist’s genes are rewarded for the act by being passed on down to the next generation.

Terrible story and thanks for sharing it. I’ve been studying this kind of wicked behavior and there is a nexus - pornography.

I fear this is only going to increase as porn moves out of the shadows and into the mainstream. They say that most teen boys today have formed their opinion of women and sex from watching hundreds of porns. When their first sex act isn’t like a porno they’re turned off. Creepy and scary for our society as a whole.

There’s a world of difference between dressing nicely and sluttily. I know plenty of very attractive women who dress modestly and still turn your head. Plus, there’s more to a woman than her appearance.
