I'm confused. Is Mouse a rapist or a feminazi?

Wait, he didn't actually insert his penis? I somehow missed that detail. Seems relevant to some extent - I understand that a violation is a violation from the victim's standpoint, but it does seem to mitigate things from the kid's perspective. It's not like he was humping away at a lifeless body for his own sexual pleasure - sure, there is an emotional acceptance high that comes from digital penetration but speaking for myself anyways, it's usually done with the idea of providing some one-sided pleasure to get things moving. Of course, it's hard to say what his next intentions might have been, but... you can't convict on that.

The worst part of the story is the father's choice of words "20 minutes of action." facepalm.gif

Anyways, the reason I am pretty reflective on this case is, I think it's possible I could have been Brock Turner. Blasted at a party, hanging out with a girl, she passes out while we're goofing around....

...there are some mitigating circumstances that make me think this guy was pushing the limits a lot farther than I would have - behind a dumpster? And running when "caught?" But hey, I've done some dumb crap and I could see a version of events where two strangers come upon you and you just take off....

Yeah, I don't think him running is a de facto sign of internalized guilt. The kid looks pretty nerdy so I could easily see him running when two guys rush over yelling at you. Now, shows he's a shit head, because as far as he knew they were going to rob/beat on/rape the girl. But much seems to be made about his running as a telltale sign of his rape guilt and I think that's unwarranted.

Kind of how I feel (and how I usually feel when drunk college kids do stoopid ish).

I've been in pretty-much this exact situation:
- Big party at a house I was living in
- Making out with a girl in my room on my futon
- I notice she passed out
- I put a blanket on her and go to sleep on the floor (because, of course, my futon was also my bed).

I'm not sure how that would've looked if we were a little further along before she passed out and two guys came rushing in. I am sure, though, that I wouldn't have been accused of rape, because we were pretty close at the time (though not officially dating).

I've also been on the other side of this equation:
- Bring a girl home after a long day and a lot of Killians
- Make out with her for a while on my futon mattress (because, of course, the frame had broken years earlier)
- Wake up in the morning and realize I passed out before I could close the deal.

I didn't even check if I was digitally raped. And, no, I'm obviously not a very good make-out partner.

Sounds like we have more lives ruined by what happened that night by the dumpster, namely, the judge.

People drink Killians?

When it's 2 dollars a bottle, yes

My guess is that this explains the judge's lenient sentence. He likely disagreed with the jury verdict, and the light sentence was his way of expressing this.

Question something? No thumbs.
Sort of proves HRoi's point, no?

Or more likely he recognized that the jury could convict even if it believed most or all of the defendant's version of the events. California law does not seem to require that the victim be unconscious to convict.

I say this with the caveat that I'm not licensed to practice law in CA and that this isn't legal advice, of course.

Let us hope your prudent disclaimer wasn't the difference-maker for anyone's decision making.
