Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel - hats off to you for being willing to reexamine a case. Injustice is not winning.
§MÖKÈ § MÌЯЯÖR§
The disparity between the way men are and the way women are treated in the criminal justice system is appalling.
What our culture (media) and public educational system, and feminists tells us to think about men. = Men can't be trusted., Women are always victims by virtue of their sex
FALSE RAPE/ABUSE CHARGES = Men Get Prison,their good name destroyed, financial loss
Women Get - No charges filed against them in most cases and financial gain ( nothing to loose)
NOT even the most feminist criminal defense lawyer will deny what I’m about to tell you:
50% OF DATE RAPE CASES ARE OUTRIGHT FALSE.(source LINKS below)
When cry-wolf women where questioned about the primary reasons why they made false RAPE claims against men, the typical teary-eyed answers were:
“seeking revenge, providing an alibi, obtaining sympathy and attention."
There is also extensive data corroborating what every criminal defense lawyer already knows, and thus men must take proactive steps to avoid catching a case.
Feminists and their ideological allies routinely dismiss and trivialize the experiences of men falsely accused of rape by claiming that “only 2% of rape accusations are false.
Many police departments resolve even the most obvious cases of false rape accusation by sending both parties home, recording no crime, and making the girl pinky swear never to do it again. But to my surprise, several decent studies have been done on the frequency of false rape accusations.
There are "usually" no penalties for women who bring false rape charges
A false rape accusation is not merely an attack on a man’s character. It is an attempt to kidnap, imprison, torture, and perhaps murder an innocent man. It is a profoundly evil act, and yet there are often no consequences for women who make false rape accusations.
False allegations of rape are believed to be more common than many persons realize. These are the findings of four research studies:
A review of 556 rape accusations filed against Air Force personnel found that 27% of women later recanted. Then 25 criteria were developed based on the profile of those women, and then submitted to three independent reviewers to review the remaining cases. If all three reviewers deemed the allegation was false, it was categorized as false. As a result, 60% of all allegations were found to be false.1 Of those women who later recanted, many didn't admit the allegation was false until just before taking a polygraph test. Others admitted it was false only after having failed a polygraph test
In a nine-year study of 109 rapes reported to the police in a Midwestern city, Purdue sociologist Eugene J. Kanin reported that in 41% of the cases the complainants eventually admitted that no rape had occurred
In a follow-up study of rape claims filed over a three-year period at two large Midwestern universities, Kanin found that of 64 rape cases, 50% turned out to be false
Among the false charges, 53% of the women admitted they filed the false claim as an alibi.
According to a 1996 Department of Justice report, “in about 25% of the sexual assault cases referred to the FBI, ... the primary suspect has been excluded by forensic DNA testing.6 It should be noted that rape involves a forcible and non-consensual act, and a DNA match alone does not prove that rape occurred. So the 25% figure substantially underestimates the true extent of false allegations.
And according to former Colorado prosecutor Craig Silverman, “For 16 years, I was a prosecutor who made most of my reputation vigorously prosecuting rapists. ... I was amazed to see all the false rape allegations that were made to the Denver Police Department. . A command officer in the Denver Police sex assaults unit recently told me he placed the false rape numbers at approximately 45%.”
According to the FBI, about 95,000 forcible rapes were reported last year.
Based on the statements and studies cited above, some 47,000 American men are falsely accused of rape each year.
Some of these men are wrongly convicted, sentenced, and imprisoned. Even if there is no conviction, a false allegation of rape can “emotionally, socially, and economically destroy a person.
Numerous studies have concluded that false rape accusations are significantly higher than false accusations of other crimes.
All research is flawed to a greater or lesser degree, and research on false rape claims is no exception. What research we do have is troubling, however.
Dr. Eugene Kanin is a retired sociologist at Purdue University. As an early Feminist he pioneered awareness and study of the concept of date rape. In the 1990s he authored a study on the prevalence of false rape accusations which concluded that 41% of the accusers – which were in fact all of the accusations made to the police department of a small metropolitan area over a ten year period - were false.
I had a similar issue happen in Oregon with the Marion County Sheriff. Our neighbor, Brian Waters, filed a false police report that I shot his dog. Brian Water's brother is a Marion County Sheriff so this false police report stuck. I had no idea when the police arrived, why they were there. They told me that I had shot a dog 250 feet from my barn, uphill, through a woven wire fence, a 4 foot tall hedgerow, past a wooden fence, and hit the dog in the paw, after dark, with a Bebe gun - and the dog was a black lab. Seriously, that is what the report stated. I had never even seen this black lab and I don't own firearms. None-the-less, they wanted to put me in jail and the DA stood behind them. I never even had a traffic ticket and was stunned. I had to get an attorney, go through 6 months of waiting/trials and pass up THREE plea bargains from the DA for 18 months probation and $1500.00 even after passing a polygraph. The Marion County Sheriff would not allow me to take this dog I had never seen to the vet. They stated that Brian Waters did not want to take his "shot" dog to the Vet. Brian Waters made up this story because he thought I was Native American. I also have several friends who are gay. THAT is why Brian Waters did this, and his brother the Sheriff who is also a bigot, helped him. Don't come to Oregon, it is an unethical and dishonest place - especially Marion County DA and Sheriff.
“The plaintiff ran away when an investigator pulled into the driveway”. I wouldn’t pursue a second either after that.
While incarcerated, an advocacy group, that challenges questionable convictions, was able to determine that a glaring lie, uttered by the alleged victim during last year’s court proceedings, triggered suspicion whether the girl lied about her sexual molestation charge in the first place.
the”victim” should be charged with perjury and pay all legal fees to the defendant
Glad he was freed, but they need to pursue charges against the minor. There was a case in California over a decade ago where a homeless served several years in prison because two little girls said he'd molested them. Well, the girls confided to friends years later that they had made up the whole story as an excuse for their being late for school! And they thought it was funny. Fortunately the friends told on them and the man was freed. The fact is, you DON'T need proof for a conviction... you just need to get the jury to believe the accuser.
Again, we need ACTUAL evidence in order to put someone away. The fact that all the court originally needed was a statement makes me TERRIFIED for the future of good people.
I was a shop steward for a major airlines and had a case where an employee was accused of destroying company property. She was a single mother of 5, been with the co. for 7 years. She was accused of slashing a photo copy of a map of the garage showing employee parking. The paper was posted by the elevator and under video security. It showed her looking at the map, reaching up to her hair and then with a shiny object moved her hand up and down the sheet of paper. I was shown the video and was told by management that though miniscule, it was destruction of property and she would be fired. I spoke with her and she was adamant of her innocence and claimed the shiny object was likely her car keys since she was leaving work. I asked mgt. to see the video again and told them she was innocent. They had the slashed paper and I pointed out on the video that her hand moved up and down, never at an angle like the slashes...she kept her job and management never even apologized to her.
I know it's the law in the state, but allowing a conviction based on a less than unanimous verdict throws the idea of "reasonable doubt" out the window.
So, if I understand it correctly there was no physical evidence whatsoever?
Interesting, how someone can falsely accuse a person, and wreck that persons' life (and their families' lives). But when it is brought to light - the accuser seems to be allowed to simply go about their other business. It's as if the law is saying, "Tough luck THIS time - try again when you can cross all your eyes, and dot all your tees."
