A 16-year-old boy is charged as an adult for allegedly raping a 13-year-old girl as three other boys cheered him on at a south Minneapolis party, according to a criminal complaint.As usual the defense says, "It was consensual." Another girl was allegedly hit and kicked when she refused to have sex. Some choice.
It will be interesting to see how long it takes the defense team to begin the character assassination of the victim. I suspect that the believability of that attack will hinge on how respectable the defense team can make these boys look.
