Chicago Tribune Alleged rape victim threatened with jail
so. though she's been cross examined already and has testified she has no recollection of consenting to sex with this group of men, she's basically going to be thrown in jail if she doesn't watch a videotape of her own rape.
before you write me and say something really idiotic, ask yourself this: if she was your 20 year old daughter, would you want her to watch a tape of her rape?
if you're as pissed off about this dehumanization of a woman as i am, contact the men who should know better here:
call the judge: Judge Kerry M. Kennedy at 708-974-6759
call the presiding judge: Judge Anthony S. Montelione at 708-974-6288
call the chief judge: Judge Timothy C. Evans at 312-603-6000
[update: within minutes of me posting this, the Trib just posted an update - the judge backed down.]
[update2: scott lemieux has analysis here]
