A couple of rapes in the news come to mind this week. The conviction in SLC of Mark Hartle for the 2014 rape of a teen reminded those of us who remember of Mr. Hartle's role in the infamous Casablanca assault way back in 1991. He escaped conviction in that case. I'll betcha there's been a lot in between.
In some ways more outrageous is the Stanford rape case in CA. The assailant not only got a very light sentence for what was described as a very intense and violent crime only broken up when two passers by pulled the assailant off the woman. The assailant came from privilege and even his mug shot was suppressed until the whole case got in the news this week.
Sexual assault is difficult to define and prosecute, and as we see out west, punishment is not consistent.
These are both egregious cases that are disturbing each in their own way.
