Millionaire Date Rape

AP

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. - Prosecutors charged a real estate agent Monday with the rapes of three women, including two he met through a Web site claiming to be the largest online dating hub for millionaires, authorities said.

Joseph Garcia, 47, of Irvine appeared in court, although he did not enter a plea to six counts
of forcible sodomy and one count of forcible rape. His arraignment was scheduled for Nov. 3, and bail was set at $1 million. Deputy Public Defender George Abbes, who appeared on Garcia's behalf, declined comment.


Our "millionaire" defendant has a public defender?

While the stereotypical rapist continues to be seen as desperate and unkempt, real rapists come in all shapes, sizes and economic classes.

Respectability is often only skin deep.

I think this is consistently one of the hardest things for folks, men, to understand. I've run into this stereotypical belief more than anything when I was in school and, unfortunately, at the workplace.
