setting aside the messed up aspect of the "i'm too good looking" defense. wouldn't it make more sense if this was a date rape instead of an armed robbery/kidnapping that led to rape?

It's a bold strategy, Cotton. Let's see if it pays off for him.
 
2014-03-20 09:20:03 PM
Yeah, that doesn't work even when you are really, really ridiculously good-looking.

I'm too sexy for this rape charge...

Well I guess it all started the first time I went through the second grade. I caught my reflection in a spoon while I was eating my cereal, and I remember thinking "wow, you're ridiculously good looking, maybe you could do that for a career."

I'm sure he'll be purty in prison, too.

Sad part is, that defense appears to have (sort of) worked in his last trial, which resulted in a hung jury...

His other attorney planned to advise him against using that defense, but he had just 26 minutes to get to the gym.
 
2014-03-21 02:24:15 AM
Does he have to be at the gym in 27 minutes?

This story is pointless without a picture of Mr. Good Looking.

Mathis's lawyer presented an alternative narrative to the evening; he said that the victim was taken with Mathis's good looks and sparkling personality and she also wanted to buy drugs from him. "He walked up to her with a bottle of Vicodin and said, 'Wanna buy some pills? She said, "Sure," get in. We'll go to the ATM," said attorney Carter Clayton.



Just like that. He just happened to have a 1 WHOLE BOTTLE. Uhh-huh. Dealers, (at least the couple I know of) would never just walk up to some strange person and ask them if they want to buy some pills and Oh! By the way would you like to make with me the sexy-time? That's a sure fire ticket for jail.

Going back to some guy's place and getting high with him is pretty much asking to get railed.

Benevolent Misanthrope: Yeah, that doesn't work even when you are really, really ridiculously good-looking.


Sounds like it has once so far.

Isn't this just a he said she said kinda deal anyway?  Thought it took proof to convict someone of a crime.

Now they tell me! I could have been raping for years.
 
2014-03-21 02:53:32 AM
People do believe that line though.

"He's capable of getting sex without using force - why would he need to rape?"

So, you're saying she was asking for it, whether she consented or not?

I am a secure heterosexual male than can say many men are handsome. George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Denzel Washington, etc. However, this guy has not reached that plateau, and never will. Good luck with that defense. Being an Atlantan, I have had the opportunity to meet such men that their aunts, moms, or whoever convinced them they where the 2nd coming of Tupac. What mystifies me is how they can afford $3000 rims on a $1500 car.

Wow. That whole clusterfark was just ... full of fail.

Right, so- moron lawyer actually using this defense: You're looking bad for a lawyer. Dude... that's pretty farking far down there.

Moron juror who bought this crap and caused the hung jury: Hang yourself.

Sexy-ass defendantRapist piece of shiat: Son... do you have any idea how many dudes are waiting in the pen for you to show up, just so they can use your defense on you? Lemme know how well it works for ya.

Ridiculously good-looking defendant better become ridiculously good-looking Bubba's biatch because if that works as a defense I'll have lost all faith in the legal system.
WTF is going on with this country?

Dude isn't ugly but how could any juror actually buy that defense? He's not ugly but he's not stunningly attractive either.

For the record, consent is exactly that.  If she says stop, you're done.

I have found that in the real world, if you don't want sex with someone, don't go back to their place with them to light up.  A lot of date rape happens to impaired people.  They get slipped drugs they may not have done before, and end up so high they're not having consensual sex.  With several people.  This can happen to anyone.

Best thing to remain in control is not go back to their place.

Because in the real world, there only one reason you do.
 
2014-03-21 03:18:20 AM
If she says no and you persist then lop it off. There's your precedent.

"The 24-year old survivor testified Wednesday that one night over two years ago, Mathis stopped her as she was leaving a CVS and kidnapped her at gunpoint, forced her to take money out of various ATMs and ultimately sexually assaulted her. "He had told me to get in the car and I actually begged him to take my car,"

If the "carjacked-at-gunpoint" part is true, doesn't sound like she willingly went back to his place.

you are literally the same guy who just said, "Going back to some guy's place and getting high with him is pretty much asking to get railed." you just took your original blatantly rape-justifying, victim-blaming comment and re-phrased it into an ever-so-slightly less blatant one. why bother?
