(Fox News) Thanks to a Supreme Court ruling from 1979, no may not always mean no when it comes to rape in North Carolina.
On Thursday, the Fayetteville Observer published an article about a teenage girl who was at a party when a man pulled her into a bathroom to have sex. She consented, but when things turned violent, she told the man to stop. He kept going.
As it turns out, according to North Carolina law, a woman is not allowed to back out of sex once it is underway.
