    The Supreme Court on Friday upheld the acquittal of 'Peepli Live' co-director Mahmood Farooqui in a rape case, citing an email sent by the victim, a US woman, saying, "I do love you." "How many times you have come across a case where the (rape) victim says I love you," a bench of Justices S A Bobde and L Nageswara Rao asked advocate Vrinda Grover, appearing for the woman. "They were good friends. The facts of the case show good friendship. How did she communicate initially 'yes'. How does the other person know that her response is false," the bench...

    The number of rapes reported to authorities in Sweden increased by 10 percent in 2017, according to new preliminary figures from the country's National Council on Crime Prevention (Brĺ). The figures, released on Thursday, include all incidents reported as crimes with the police, prosecution authority and other authorities tasked with investigating crimes in Sweden. They include incidents later shown not to be crimes following investigations. In total, 1.51 million crimes were reported in Sweden during 2017, a slight increase (4,010 more) on 2016. The category with the biggest increase was crimes against the person, with the individual crimes of fleeing...

  • Serial rapist not happy with 77-year prison sentence

    A 25-year-old serial rapist, whose victims included a 16-year-old girl, got mouthy Thursday after a Franklin County judge sentenced him to 77 years in prison. Kaquawn Lane, formerly of Gahanna, refused to sign a form confirming that he would register as a sex offender every 90 days after his release from prison. “I’ll never get out,” he told Common Pleas Judge Stephen L. McIntosh. “Why would I need to sign the registration? I will never get out. I’ll never get out ... I will die in prison.” “You deserve it,” a family member of one of his victims said...
  • FBI Agent Accused of Drugging, Sexually Assaulting FBI Colleague

    A FBI Agent in the Los Angeles Field Office has been accused of allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting a female FBI colleague, federal law enforcement sources confirm. The FBI agent is male. “(FBI) Director (Christopher) Wray had the agent walked out of the building in LA,” one FBI source said. (Snip) “This is the FBI’s playbook from the seventh floor” one male FBI agent said, alluding to the bosses on the seventh floor of the FBI’s D.C. HQ. “Female agents aren’t here to get promoted; they’re here for one thing. And if they complain about it that’s a big mistake.”

    An Alaska man who brutally attacked three registered sex offenders — telling one he was an “avenging angel” — says his experience should serve as a deterrent to anyone considering vigilante justice. Jason Vukovich, 42, of Anchorage, is facing up to 25 years in prison after agreeing to plead guilty to first-degree attempted assault and a consolidated count of first-degree robbery in connection to the 2016 attacks. In exchange, prosecutors will drop more than a dozen charges, according to court records obtained by the Anchorage Daily News. In a five-page letter sent to the newspaper in November, Vukovich said he...

    Katie Beers, now 34, participated in a Reddit AMA on Thursday, during which she revealed that the years of sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of her godmother's husband prepared her for the ordeal. She was just 9 when she was abducted by John Esposito in 1992, who lured her in with the promise of a girl for her upcoming birthday. Espositio then took her to his house where he kept her in a dungeon he had specifically built for her that was buried under his garage and hidden by a 200lbs. slab of concrete. Linoleum flooring and carpeting...

    Hundreds of women in the heavily-migrant populated city of Malmo took to the streets this week to protest the growing levels of sex attacks after a string of gang rapes. The protests were largely in response to a comment from police in the city, who initially advised women not to go out alone at night in the wake of the gang rape of a 17-year-old described as particularly brutal. The demonstrators were also protesting the fact that there had been three gang rapes in the city in under a month, the Daily Mail reports.
  • Poll: What should the prison sentence be for someone who makes a false accusation of rape?

    Poll: What should the prison sentence be for someone who makes a false accusation of rape? You can answer the poll at false accusation of rape can cost an innocent person their education, their job, and their reputation. It can force them to spend years in prison. It can ruin their life. In addition, every false accusation of rape potentially gives ammunition to people who might want to falsely argue that other accusations or rape – ones in which a rape really did take place – are false. It’s also a waste of the taxpayers’ money.

    A student has described going through “mental torture” after a rape case against him was thrown out in court because police had failed to hand over more than 40,000 messages from his accuser. Liam Allan, 22, faced up to ten years in jail charged with six counts of rape and six counts of sexual assault against a young woman over a 14-month period that began when he was 19. The criminology student at Greenwich University had spent nearly two years on bail and three days in Croydon Crown Court when the trial was stopped in a dramatic fashion after it...

    Another day, another allegation. Or two or three allegations. The era of sexual McCarthyism has dawned and shows no sign of abating. And as the accusations reach back farther and farther in time, the chasm between those decades and today becomes ever more glaringly incongruous. What could be more ironic than the fact that we are experiencing an unprecedented outbreak of long-belated sexual harassment charges in a generation defined by its sexual licentiousness? We are, after all, living in an era that a 2013 article on the American Psychological Association website dubbed the “Sexual Hook-up Culture.” A time of “uncommitted...

    Juanita Broaddrick will not stay quiet regarding Time magazine’s “silence breakers” piece on the #MeToo movement. Time featured a slew of famous faces for its annual “Person of the Year” issue — those who bring awareness to sexual assault collectively captured the distinction — but Ms. Broaddrick says her contributions were conspicuously left out. The woman who has maintained for decades that former President Bill Clinton raped her in Arkansas when she was 35 years old says her message for Time’s editors veered from the “liberal victim mold.”

    Bryan Singer, the big-budget filmmaker behind multiple X-Men movies, has been sued for allegedly raping a 17-year-old boy on a yacht, and then using his position in Hollywood to threaten him into silence. In the lawsuit, Cesar Sanchez-Guzman alleges that Singer offered to give him a tour of the yacht during a boat party near Seattle in 2003. Once cornered in a room, Singer allegedly forced the teen to perform oral sex before raping him, according to the lawsuit filed in Washington state court.

    Georgetown, amid years of reports that its Middle East Studies were compromised by apologists for violent extremists, if not outright terrorists, has, if anything, doubled down on its approach. "Breaking news on the discipline of Middle East studies is seldom kind to Georgetown University," a report from Campus Watch notes. "In July 2017 came word that the Bridge Initiative of the Saudi-funded Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding (ACMCU) had hired former Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) national legal director Arsalan Iftikhar as a senior research fellow." "With the appointment, Bridge/ACMCU has effectively become a branch of...

Al Franken will resign from the United States Senate "in the coming weeks" he announced Thursday, a day after a number of his Democratic colleagues called for him to step down amid mounting allegations of sexual misconduct against women. "Today I am announcing that in the coming weeks, I will be resigning as a member of the United States Senate," Franken said on the Senate floor. "It's become clear that I can't both pursue the Ethics Committee process and at the same time remain an effective senator for [the people of Minnesota]."
