1. Very old story.

Funny how they are only concerned about his life being "ruined". Not about how the rape destroyed her life forever.

4. But good news--the judge is in trouble and the rapist will be tried.....




https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/02/nyregion/judge-james-troiano-rape.html

..............But a family court judge said it wasn’t rape. Instead, he wondered aloud if it was sexual assault, defining rape as something reserved for an attack at gunpoint by strangers.

He also said the young man came from a good family, attended an excellent school, had terrific grades and was an Eagle scout. Prosecutors, the judge said, should have explained to the girl and her family that pressing charges would destroy the boy’s life.


The best things to do in N.Y.C. during the hottest season of the year. This limited-edition newsletter will launch before Memorial Day and run through Labor Day.



So he denied prosecutors’ motion to try the 16-year-old as an adult. “He is clearly a candidate for not just college but probably for a good college,” Judge James Troiano of Superior Court said last year in a two-hour decision while sitting in Monmouth County.

Now the judge has been sharply rebuked by an appeals court in a scathing 14-page ruling that warned the judge against showing bias toward privileged teenagers.


In doing so, the appeals court cleared the way for the case to be moved from family court to a grand jury, where the teenager, identified only as G.M.C. in court documents, will be treated as an adult.
New Jersey law allows juveniles as young as 15 to be tried as adults when accused of serious crimes, and the grand jury will weigh whether to indict him on the sexual assault accusation.

5. May I hazard a guess as to the race of this

"young man came from a good family, attended an excellent school, had terrific grades and was an Eagle scout."?

8. So the judge has a history of this

From the end of the article:

In 2004, Judge Troiano imposed a gag order to prohibit people in a courtroom from discussing the high-profile case of two Montclair High School football players accused of sexually assaulting a schoolmate. The charges were eventually dropped.


Seems to me this judge should be permanently retired at the very least and put in prison as a best case scenario.

9. For a minute there I thought this was referring to Boofer Kavanaugh.

It certainly could be.

12. It is 2019...

And still we have this bullshit refrain that rapists have a “face”. There is no race, grade level, or perfect family photo that means you “couldn’t possibly be a rapist!”

15. This enrages me

WTF?

The boy filmed himself penetrating her from behind, her torso exposed, her head hanging down, prosecutors said. He later shared the cellphone video among friends, investigators said, and sent a text that said, “When your first time having sex was rape.”


HE SAID IT WAS RAPE! When he shared a video of himself raping the girl among his friends!
