    Breaking News: Public defense attorney fulfills ethical responsibility to defend a client to the best of their ability regardless of their own view on the case. More at eleven.

    She said the little girl had a history of fantasizing about older men and seeking them out. There's the slut shaming.

    Well, how sure are we that the 12 year old wasn't asking for it?

    She was doing her job though. Age is largely irrelevant in law when it comes to these things. If anything I'd think Hilary "slut" shamming would've made it easier for the prosecution to win. Why does her gearing up for a Presidential run matter that much? If anything it shows that she can get the job done.

    Defense strategies shouldn't include questioning someones mental health unless they have solid proof of that and can present that.

    If you don't like it then perhaps you might consider advocating switching away from an adversarial legal system.

    Adversarial systems aren't about proof.

    Thats why the prosecution can yell objection to get a statement dismissed, and the burden of proof falls on the prosecution always anyways.

    Republicans do not care. Wiping their ass's with the constitution has become an Olympic sport for them.

    So why even go to court if no proof is needed? That's pretty damned fucked up.

    How do you come to that conclusion? Questioning the credibility of the accuser is absolutely defending your client.

    People also need to bear in mind that the lawyer presents the case that their client wants and agrees to, not the one the lawyer wants.

    If the comment wasn't relevant then it's the responsibility of the Judge and/or the prosecution to point that out, not the defense's.

    People should also note that the reason the case collapsed was down to the fact the forensic lab messed up and destroyed vital evidence, crippling the prosecution's case.

    The title is extremely mis-leading and a huge attention grab. Literally, you should word it Hillary DEFENDED child rapist 30 + years ago, which was her job. You are making an extremely mis-leading title just to get people to come to the thread.

    The entire American legal system is based around the fact that the defense doesn't need to present proof, only raise reasonable doubt. Proof is only the burden of the accuser.

    It was in 1975. "Slut shaming" wasn't even a popular term then.

    The problem is with the justice system.

    Cops and lawyers get praised and rewarded based on won and solved cases, regardless of justice actually being served. This leads to arrests and convictions of innocent people as well as guilty parties walking free.

    It would be nice if Hillary used this as a chance to open the public's eyes to the flaws in the system and try to effect a positive change.
