It might not be the poor guys fault he raped her, he could have had a poor childhood or a bad teacher or his dad was too strict. I hope he gets the 'counseling' he deserves.
He didn't rape her it was an assault. No actual clothing removed. Supposedly grabbed her. No person was ever caught no witnesses of any kind.

Perhaps she was not receiving the attention she wanted from the media in regards to what she was doing!
She did however receive much more attention after the "assault"!

When she got back home here in Chicago,she gave an interview and was laughing about it.Have not heard a thing about it since.There are quite a few,from here who are of the opion,that the story was a farce. It was a plain and simple publicity stunt,because she was not getting the donations she had expected
