4 U.S. Marines refuse to enter pleas in rape case in Philippines
Four U.S. Marines suspected of raping a 22-year-old Filipina declined to enter pleas at their first appearance in court Friday, prompting the judge to enter a plea of not guilty on their behalf.

Prosecutors allege that the three Marines cheered Smith while he raped the woman, whose real name has not been publicly disclosed, inside a rented van on Nov. 1 at Subic Bay free port near Olongapo City, northwest of Manila. Smith claimed he had consensual sex with the woman.
