Defense attorney appeals for overturn of Wichita mana s rape, human-trafficking convictions

An attorney for a Wichita man convicted in 2012 of raping and trafficking a 13-year-old girl told the Kansas Court of Appeals on Tuesday that his client's convictions should be reversed because the trial judge stated the girl's age in one of the jury instructions. Attorney Randall Hodgkinson argued that because the teen was allowed to give her own age during the trial of Donald L. Davis - testimony which he argued was hearsay, since the girl has no firsthand knowledge of her own birth - and because the judge then reiterated her age in the instruction, it stripped jurors of their responsibility to decide for itself whether the girl's age met the requirements for prosecution under the state's aggravated human trafficking law.

Opinion Line

I'll bet money that if the Republicans take the Senate in November, which they almost certainly will, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will suddenly decide she needs to retire before February. If you complain about our weak response to ISIS and our shrinking military ranks, you are likely the same person who wants to shrink the budget deficit and cut taxes at the same time.
