Attorney takes blaming the victim to whole new level
"At the May 3 start of the Orange County trial of three teenage boys accused of gang-raping an unconscious minor, a defense attorney made a startling assertion: the alleged victim enticed the 'sweet,' 'caring,' 'kind' defendants into a sexual frenzy and then, while faking unconsciousness, sexually assaulted them... a pacing, finger-pointing [defense attorney Joseph G. Cavallo] told the jury that the girl [is]... 'a nut,' 'a pathological liar,' 'a cheater,' an 'out-of-control girl,' 'the aggressor,' a wanna-be 'porn star,' 'a troubled young lady,' 'a tease - that's what she is!' 'a mess,' a 'master manipulator,' a 'little opportunist,' 'a compulsive liar,' 'a cheat - that's what she is' and a 'callous' drug addict and alcoholic who trimmed her pubic hair, bragged about liking group sex and once drank a beer in a car. 'Why was her vagina and anus completely shaved?' Cavallo asked jurors. 'How many teenagers have a shaved vagina and anus?'"
