Was A Defense Attorney's Slander Of Rape Victim Too Cruel For A Rapist?

From WMUR:

Gregory Graham, of Dover [NH], pleaded guilty during the second day of his trial. The plea came a day after his lawyer called the 15-year-old victim a "teenage drama queen" and and liar. Lawyer Lincoln Soldati said Graham heard testimony on Wednesday that led to his change of heart.
I don't know if it was hearing the details of his crime, including hearing his victim's 911 call, or if it was hearing his defense attorney's slander of an innocent girl which led to this guilty plea. Maybe it was the contrast between the reality of what he had done and the false criminal accusation hurled by his attorney at a rape victim which caused Graham to plead guilty.

I hope that this guilty plea will stop any slander directed at this girl outside of the courtroom. Those who continue to slander this girl and other rape victims have lower ethical standards than this rapist.

That is absolutely ridiculous. A teenage drama queen and a liar? Because all teenagers who get raped are just exaggerating consensual sex, right? That is pathetic and something I would sadly expect to hear from a young teenage boy, not from an attorney.

Attorneys are crooked, they would do and say anything to win. It's not about justice with them, it's about winning their little game.
