Response to ismnotwasm (Original post)

22. This is a villainous ruling.

What bothers me is not so much the ruling itself -- which is, as I say, villainous -- but the foundational concept that extorted "consent" is any kind of "consent" at all. Consider that the original charge -- 2nd degree rape, because for some reason, what the accused did was not considered "real" rape -- is based on the "withdrawal" of a "consent" that was attained by menaces -- and that, apparently, is just fine and dandy. So, I guess if I threaten to burn down your home or business unless you give me money, that's not a crime, eh?

Somebody's legal code needs to get a thorough working-over.
