Local Prosecutor Decides Pictures (of Alleged Rape) Are Worth A Thousand Words

Pop quiz: You are a local prosecutor, and you’ve obtained pictures of an alleged rape. The pictures show the alleged violation taking place — the victim and the alleged assailant — as well as other teenagers drinking and partying. You should:

(a) Use the pictures as evidence when you prosecute the rapist.

(b) Put the pictures in a file and never look at them again (if you determine that the pictures show consensual sex).

(c) Do not charge the alleged rapist, but show the pictures to parents in your community.

If you answered (c), then you must be from Kansas. Click on the link below so Kash can tell you how they help parents in the heartland.
