I understand we are all afforded to have equal representation, but what kind of low life do you have to be to take a case like this,and describe these poor women as "Ready to party!" And to question whether there ever was a knife. Next time there is a knife at my neck while I'm being raped ans sodomized, I'll make sure to ask the assailants, Is that a knife or just a sheath? What the heck????

Defense attorneys like this one make me absolutely sick! How dare she defend a [email protected]@rd like this! How dare she question the victim's statements as truthful or not! They had never met these men til that day. What on Earth does this defense attorney think these victims have to gain by lying? I really hope she finds out the hard way how sick her job really is! You have a choice. Why choose defense law?

where are all of these sick, low-life people coming from? our community is getting worse with every passing day!

disgusted, i agree with you, but every person has the right to representation, is innocent until proven guilty, and someone has to defend these losers. i wonder how the defense atty can sleep at night and i also wonder how long she'll be able to continue representing these kinds of criminals?

Of course everyone does have a right to representation however a defense based on questioning how consensual the event was based on what the woman was wearing? Ugh. Not too cool. Crazy it's a female lawyer. I imagine having to make that argument would chip away at her on some level.

My thoughts and prayers go out to these women, I could not imagine the fear and the nightmare they have dealt with since that night. I remember being young and stupid and hanging out with people you didn’t know and also dressing in skimpy clothing but that is not an excuse for someone to rape these women. I don’t care if you know the person or have never met them NO means NO whether the women is drunk, sober, high, wearing a short dress or wearing a turtle neck, how someone looks is not an excuse for men to rape them. I hope all these scum bags rot in H*** and get what they deserve in prison.

This defense attorney must really have her head up her a** on this one!!! What human with a soul would even dare to say the women were dressed to party as if they were actually looking to get raped!!! Women in a snow suit can get raped just as well!!How ignorant is that??!!And as for you people that seem to think that only Mexican people are capable of this kind of thing...guess again! Any dirty scum with an urge of the worst kind came do the same damn thing!! Wake the hell up!

The driver needs to go to prison. No excuses. He had control of the vehicle and it was him who drove the car to the field where the women were assaulted and raped. No one put a knife to his back or throat. He could have driven to a 7-11 and pretended to need to buy something. ULTIMATELY, he made the gang rape possible for the 2 young women. He needs to be sentenced just as long. Maybe there, he'll contemplate on his mother, sisters and all the women in his life. Yep, he deserves what's coming to him.

Defense attorney Kimberly Barnett, what a poor excuse for a woman! I hope you, your sister, your daughter NEVER have to suffer what these two women did at the hands of the pond scum you're defending. It's people like you, who cheapen the profession of law.

Jesus! I just cant believe how sick people are, and to think the defendant's response was they were wearing low cut shirts, just awful no one deserves to be treated like this I dont care if you walk around in a bikini. I hope you all rot in prison and get ganged raped while serving your sentence. What comes around goes around.

I understand your aré disgusted by the actions of these men (I have not read anything about them being Mexican), but just know that not all Mexican people are tupid criminals, and not all the tupid criminals out there are Mexican.
