I don't condone what happened and I sure hope that this girl has broken up with her bf after this incident and is becoming a mature adult. But where are this girls parents? I would not allow my 16yr old to be at a party drinking with guys 10 yrs older. Hanging out with a crowd like that clearly is asking for trouble.

Rape is a crime of violence. What makes men do this despicable crime. Men who rape must have psychological problems so deep that I cannot comprehend.

Who are you people? What's this crap about NYC? Cory Kastner has long lived in Pittsfield, since his grammer school days, and I would know being born and raised here and occasionally attending the same school as him, and I'm not suprised by the charge. And any kind of condescending attitude about how this 16 year old girl shouldn't have been at the party to begin with is insensitive and ignorant. Either you don't remember what it was like to be a kid (sometimes doing things you shouldnt and things your parents wouldn't approve of), or you have kids and can't imagine "allowing" them out to spend time with friends without a chaperone. Get real.

the people in the Eagles "sensationalism department" were on their toes with this one. For whatever reason they decided to add to the girls torment by pointing out that the rape was "anal". Of course they cover themselves by not printing her name but they know as well as anyone that half the people in the city will hear it through gossip.

what a sicko editor

There is no solid proof hopefully Corey is released and the girl is prosecuted for false accusations. That would help other women whom are truly raped and at the same time help men who are falsely accused.

The girl never sought medical treatment so there's no physical evidence. The witness is a convicted felon. How can there not be reasonable doubt?

I don't know these people. But unless the authorities have the alleged perpetrator's DNA, you have no evidence of sex, much less a crime. Therefore it is strictly he said, she said. If a jury actually does convict in those circumstances, a judge who doesn't throw it out is making a political, not a legal judgement.

When was the last time you raped a girl retard because thats what it sounds like. You make a retarded point that is not correct at all. A doctor can tell if a female or male was raped without DNA. Read a book.<quoted text>
OK, but the fact somebody was raped does not prove anybody in particular did it. Making it merely he said, she said. And in this case, you don't even have that. She never even sought medical attention.
