At what point do we avoid letting the technicalties determine whether a guilty person should be charged with a crime... The man was found guilty TWICE... and the fact that he "didn't waive his rights to a speedy trial" does not mean that he's not GUILTY... just like the GUILTY people that get away with crimes that WERE committed but got away with it because the weren't "Read their rights"... Trust me... most of them KNOW their rights and could read them off themselves word for word... but yet due to a "technicality" they are let go... Somebody's innocence was taken from them and they will have to live with these sexual and undesired encounters for the rest of their lives.... On the same token I feel incredibly sorry for the men and women who DO get falsely accused... but I have a hard time believing this is the case this time...
