(DAILY WIRE) People accused of sexual assault – who are mostly men – will now be at a disadvantage when it comes to defending themselves from allegations.
The Georgia Court of Appeals recently ruled that that if a woman making a sexual assault allegation cries on the stand and is unable to respond to questions regarding her accusation, a video of an earlier interview with her can be played instead. While one can certainly understand why a victim would be unable to go over the details of her rape, but this situation will also be used to the advantage of women who exaggerate or make up their claims.
Andrew Fleischman, who works to free wrongly convicted people, posted key parts of the ruling on Twitter, adding that while he appreciates “the court’s concern here, due to the witness’s mental incapacity, I am not sure that this procedure comports with the Confrontation Clause.”
