(Jezebel)   Lawyer accuses victim of being a "conniving spider" who "lured" his client and 20 of his friends into gang raping her over a 4 month period because she didn't cry rape until a sex tape of her was circulated. The victim, by the way, is 11 years old   (jezebel.com) divider line 221

Given a jury consisting entirely of pedophiles, and a passed-out judge, this is a winning strategy.

He is entitled to a jury by his peers, a bunch of other sick farks. This is an insane truth is stranger than fiction story.

Regardless. Statutory rape.

Wow - that's a um, novel, defense . When I first read about this story a while back, I remembered there was a bunch of outrage in the community not about what happened but because of who was implicated. Steve Taylor, defense attorney, is a true scumbag.

Steve Taylor, defense attorney, is the biggest #$%$%^#% in the whole story which is quite a feat considering the others are grown men who rape eleven year olds. 

Burn 'em all I say.

This is in some backwards ass third world hell hole nation that allows people to "honor rape", right?

Texas.

Well, it's a backwards ass third world hell hole, at least.

Ugh. I would like to lure that guy's ass to my boot.
 
2012-11-28 08:46:46 PM  
...and this is why I killed him Your Honor...

In fairness, in Texas, that would be a perfectly cromulent defense.

If I were on that jury, I'd request a decontamination shower in the jury room as listening to that defense would make me feel soiled and unclean. Also, vomit bags placed in each seat.
 
2012-11-28 09:16:37 PM  
Oh, by the way? Cruse is already serving an eight-year sentence on convictions for aggravated robbery and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. But that's irrelevant, right?

Well, depending on what they allowed into evidence, it could be irrelevant.
 
2012-11-28 09:53:33 PM  
So how does he figure that one 11 year old girl is able to consent and trick people into gang raping her? And 20 people thought this was a good idea to get involved? Gaaaah! Too much wrong.
 
2012-11-28 09:53:39 PM  
Without a doubt, you will read numerous comments in this thread that describe Steve Taylor as a heartless, soulless, unconscionable, disgusting, repugnant, unscrupulous, nauseating, repulsive, deplorable, unethical, vile, slimy, unsympathetic, inhuman, all-around no-good scumbaggian piece of trash.

This would be one of those comments.

minoridiot: "People don't come with signs telling their age," Taylor said. "How does a young man know? You can't cut off their legs and count the rings like a tree."
 

And lawyers wonder why people hate them.


In all fairness, he's obligated to give the best defense he can give to the client, and since the rapes were videotaped, he could really only argue that it was consensual. I sincerely doubt he thought it would work, but he can't walk into court and say "fark THIS GUY - send him away." For all we know, it was double-super-secret-reverse-psychology and he figured the "she asked for it" argument would be so reprehensible that his client would be found guilty anyway. And so he was - life in prison. 

I'd bet anything he was asking for a plea deal and his client wouldn't accept, so he had to go outlandish during trial. It's not like this was a rich client, so there wasn't an upside for the lawyer going to trial.

Hmmm I have to wonder how some defense attorneys make it through the day. They must be very good at compartmentalizing and just kind of shutting down certain parts of their mind.

Bad call, lawyer dude.

If you had used the term "legitimate rape" you could be in the US House or Senate today.

Ever known an 11 year old girl? Conniving spiders, all of them. It just gets worse from there.

A much better defense would be to tell his client to find Jesus, and throw himself upon the mercy of the court. Maybe up the ante by faking a suicide attempt.

Horseshiat.

I could give a scumbag client the best defense possible without having to resort to blaming an 11year old child for instigating her own gang-rape by 20 adult men. And even without feeling bad about trying to get him found not guilty.

This attorney is probably raping his own daughter if he's got one, and somebody needs to check if he's been sanctioned lately.

Either you get a public defender who works for the jurisdiction or you get a local lawyer who defends pro-bono, but it's part of your Miranda rights to have an advocate in court. These people can't do a shiatty job just because their clients are total assholes. I'm sure they are good at compartmentalizing, but we all are. Back when I did desktop support in the early 90's for people who hadn't ever seen a computer before, I would dream about sabotaging the truly stupid people so they'd get fired and I wouldn't have to support them anymore. I never did, but I sure wanted to.

OK, it's not close to the same thing, but you get my point. You do the job because that's the job. It just gets really reprehensible when you're dealing with the worst society has to deal with. Attorneys aren't cops - they can't just beat people senseless and get away with it when they have a bad day.

Sometimes I honestly believe that defense lawyers demand that their clients tell them the horrible truth, and then they do a Jedi mind trick into making themselves and their clients believing the contrary.
 
2012-11-28 10:26:32 PM  
Where the hell was this girls parents? How does an 11 year old girl have the free time out of supervision to get gang raped by 20 guys? I think there should.be charges for her parents too.

As sick as this defense is, THIS. As an American, the guy deserves a defense attorney.

This is the best the defense attorney can come up with.

Why this client is going on trial instead of pleading guilty and taking a lesser charge is beyond me.

Too bad that he hadn't directed a couple good movies. He'd have half of Hollywood defending him.

What do you mean horseshiat? The rape was videotaped. He can't challenge the fact that his client had sex with an 11 year old. He can't challenge that he urged other people to have sex with her. He can't argue that his client urged other rapists to slap the girl. The best possible defense that attorney (or you) could offer is that the sex, and everything else, was consensual.

What magical defense would you offer? That it wasn't him on the tape?

And like I speculated before - he probably knew this strategy wasn't going to fly, but if his client demanded he go with it, then that's what he's obligated to do.

I am a defense attorney. One of the things I tell my clients is that I'll do anything I can within the bounds of law to make sure they get a fair trial. But I also let them know that if I can't say it with a straight face I won't say it on the record. This statement doesn't even come close.

Given the video tape, about the best you can do is question his ability to discern her age. Spread the blame with the co-defendants, "They said she was 18." And don't go after her other than making sure the jury knows it was "consentual." The worst thing you can do is victimize her even more.

You know, it's bad enough that you could find one, maybe two guys who would be willing to fark a 11 year old that was willing, but seriously? 20? Wtf is wrong with you people? And how as a lawyer, could you stand in front of the court and spew this bullshiat without being disbarred? If he would have said that shiat to me, and i was the trial judge, i would have thrown both him and his scumbag client in FPYITA prison for life. There is no excuse..none...i don't care if she was naked screaming your name, begging you to fark her, she's 11. Everyone who did this should be jailed for long and long. Comon people, that's someone's daughter.

Reminds me of that case where the attractive young white couple was kidnapped, and raped and beaten before being killed. The guy who thought of it called up a bunch of his friends. I wonder how that convo went? Esp since a bunch of his friends came over to help rape her. I have moments where i have faith in people, then there is a story like this. Where nobody seems to have any sense of empathy, or a clear mind on what is right or wrong. fark people suck sometimes.
