Skip to comments.Despite 7 women's statements, Bush unlikely to be prosecuted

Allegations that former President George H.W. Bush inappropriately touched seven women involve potential crimes punishable by fines or jail time, if they had been prosecuted.
All but one of the cases is ineligible under state laws that limit when a prosecution can begin after an alleged crime, and several lawyers interviewed said that it would be difficult to win a conviction against Bush, who has vascular parkinsonism, a rare syndrome that mimics Parkinsons disease.
Youre still going to be facing prosecuting a 93-year-old man in a wheelchair thats a former president, said Toby Shook, a lawyer who previously served as a prosecutor in Dallas. I doubt if you could ever find a jury that would ever want to convict him.
Theres no indication prosecutors are planning to pursue a case against Bush. Jordana Grolnick, an actress who alleged that Bush groped her behind last year as his wife, Barbara, stood nearby, told The Associated Press that she has no plans to report the 41st president to authorities. That appears to be the only incident that hasnt reached the local statute of limitations on how long a crime can be prosecuted after it occurs.

Because he is privileged and can get away with it
But the AP would like to have him prosecuted.
Some people are more equal than others.
He said he did couldn’t do this. “At my age, some one must have it in for me!”
It really helps when you say you didn’t vote for Trump and especially so if you say you voted for Hillary.
In the mean while they say nothing about the rapist Bill Clinton.
Sexual assault charges against a 93 year old wheelchair bound man were considered??? Assault?? Really??
someone educate me. He touched the buttocks of a woman?? But he’s not in full control of his faculties at age 93 and wheelchair bound, is he?
Because he’s 94 and likely would not live beyond pretrial motions.
>> In the mean while they say nothing about the rapist Bill Clinton.
The MSM is the Country’s greatest threat.
"...avoiding a sexual assault from President George H.W. Bush..."
But he has something that doesn't age....MONEY.
Despot regimes NEVER cede power without military force. Either their own or some one elses.
Facts are it's gonna take a military style coup to roust the scoundrels from their nests!
“Because he is privileged and can get away with it”
Yep. Sadly, it is not uncommon behavior among senile old men. Yet I’ve seen poor ones who weren’t really sure where they were or what was going on get arraigned for it. The Transnationale nobility on the other hand get away with anything. I think none of them will ever get taken down, until they all are.
PROSECUTED FOR WHAT? Touching some chicks butt? The lawyers are making a killing in all this ... that’s what’s going on here. Women need to learn how to slap or scream. This is all so ridiculous.
Imagine how this could impact dating. Touch someone and it sexual assault.
Yes...I’ve been pinched on the butt by a couple guys...I ignored them...if it happened again I’d likely make a scene they would never forget.
Opposing Trump = his “get out of jail free” card.
Poppa Was a Rollin Stone.
He needs to wait his turn.
