|Was This Their Attorney? (No, But...)|
Testimony in this case was over in a single day after Cruse, now 20, declined to testify and his attorney, Steve Taylor, rested without calling any witnesses Tuesday.
During opening remarks and the questioning of the young girl, Taylor stressed how she never shed a tear nor voiced a single complaint about her sexual encounters with any of the 20 males accused of assaulting her two years ago.
The girl, whose name was withheld because she is a juvenile, answered "yes, sir" when Taylor asked if she had been a "willing participant." She also acknowledged never making an outcry until questioned by authorities after graphic sex tapes of her encounters surfaced at Cleveland High School. http://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Prosecutor-calls-defendant-in-gang-rape-one-of-4071150.php
And then you wonder why defense lawyers are thought to be scum of the earth.
The defense attorney blaming an 11 year old for the gang rape in which she was a victim is just as disgusting as the thug defendants who did this to her.
The only saving grace is that if these thugs are convicted, they will have a very bad time in prison as child molesters are considered scum and the thugs tend to be treated horribly by other prisoners.
