Hesitated on whether to post these, but both the woman and prosecutors and/or police have now given info to the media, so the information (if not the truth) is out there.
My take after reading all three articles, each of which gives slightly different details:
1) Two young people doing stupid drunken things over a two-week period doesn't make for a good criminal prosecution. (I don't mean to sound insensitive to either, but after reading these, I'm thinking this should never have gone as far as it did in the criminal/judicial realm, or in the media.)
2) Interpersonal relationships that involve bad decision-making are complicated and make life difficult for investigators and prosecutors.
3) I hope that this young woman can get the help she needs after this. And I'm not saying that flippantly.
Wait. Am I sounding like a mom here?
That's because I am.
Okay. Now let's move on.
