defense attourneys need put in prison along with their clients, trying to keep a murderer or rapist on the street should be a crime as well

"innocent until proven guilty" no longer applies i guess.(/sarcasm) You just better hope you dont get accused of doing something one day where you may need a defense lawyer. I bet you would not like to be thrown in jail for a crime you did not commit. Without defense lawyers, there would be a large number of innocent people behind bars. We may not like em, but they are necessary in our system of justice.

You can't be serious? Your right to a fair trial is a Constitutional right. Are you a legal citizen of the US.

You need to go back to high school civics class.

Why would anyone think this scum should get away with this??? Patels run a lot of motel/hotels and this is a big scam. My aunt workd briefly for a Patel owned motel in Texas and she was robbed and they wouldnt allow her to report it. Throw the book at him!!

Another case where a man abuses his position to prey on women & another case that (if true) a man jeoperdized a case instead of WAITING until the trial was over...
The world would be a much better place if men would quit thinking with their stick. Of course, women are not much better. That juror (again, if true) should have waited until the trial was over too!
Stupid is,stupid does!!!

"massaging my shoulders then he moved his hands down towards my breasts"

I'm not a lawyer but how is massaging shoulder and moving your hands "towards" someone's breast considered rape? I could be way off here but couldn't that be characterized as something else like gross sexual imposition or something similar? Is there more to this story?

I don't know if there is more to the story or not. But I would agree that it would seem more like sexual harrassament rather than rape. However, my wife would side with the prosecution if I did that to her.:)

its obvuis these girls had conspired against this man for no reason. THERE WAS NO DNA KIT DONE..THERE IS NO EVIDENCE these accusation can be based on other then circumstantial evidence. What makes the ladies that were assaulted testimony so credible. There is much conflicting testimony that doesnt even make sense. Of course the defendnat here under much stress who proabably made one stupid mistake lead to numerous accustaions of sexual assault. Prosecution had not made a clear case on exactly how and when these victims were violated. THe main evidence prosectuion has is a WEAK video tape of the defendant claiming he made a stupid mistake..it is unknown has was the mistake is or what is intended by his statement. The interrogator had made false allegations against the defendant, that should of been brough up into court as well. One thing we have learned through criminal cases,,,is if there is not direct evidence ..no dna ..no science..no trauma..nothing other than what a victim claims...then the defendant is held innocent until PROVEN GUILTY!..
i will refer this case to many organizations...this was decided unjustly!

The defense should of brought in more information regarding defendants true charater. Is he a religous man? Is he faithful? Is he a honest man? How long has he been working for this motel for? Why would ladies that make minimum wage not report sexual assault earlier (if it even happened)..just so they dont lost there job? it is obvious that if his "stupid mistake" was haveing an affair it must of been consentual..otherwise these ladies would of came foward. IF they feel immennint threat ..why would they continue to work there where it may happen again?..usually in rape situations the victim is so tramatized that she is not able to live a normal life. Expert witnesses such as psychiatrist in the rape field should of been brough to this court. I guess the judciial system in ohio is not up to par. The lawyers here are very uneducated. This case should go to appeals.

What the hell does your stupid aunt being defrauded have to do with a criminal cases in such a matter? You are racial profiling. If your aunt got robbed..take it to a civil court. Where did you get your education?..Patels are good at doing business..not a scam..maybe you and your aunt should join the KKK..or hey go work at Mcdonalds!

Dear John, May I suggest that you brush up on your language and spelling skills. Most of the points you are struggling to make are barely cipherable. At least use spell check for Pete's sake.
