At the May 3 start of the Orange County, California, trial of three teenage boys accused of gang-raping an unconscious minor, a defense attorney made a startling assertion: the alleged victim enticed the "sweet," "caring," "kind" defendants into a sexual frenzy and then, while faking unconsciousness, sexually assaulted them. At one point, the attorney, Joseph G. Cavallo, blurted out to the jury, "Why isn’t she being charged with this crime?" R. Scott Moxley reports on the trial for OC Weekly.
