    Shunned by his Hollywood friends and activist pals, an increasingly isolated and paranoid Bill Cosby lives in constant fear of someone slipping something into his food or drink. During pre-trial hearings and jury selection in Pittsburgh, ahead of the June 5 start of his sexual assault trial in Philadelphia, the 79-year-old comedian refused to stay in local hotels because of perceived threats. Instead he woke up at 2:30 every morning to fly his private jet to the courthouse from his suburban Philly home. “He and his wife are afraid that if he stayed at a hotel, someone will find a...

    Twelve jurors have been chosen for the Bill Cosby sexual assault trial: seven men and five women, two of them black, in a case where race and gender loom large. Defense lawyers had accused prosecutors of trying to block black jurors from the panel, but the district attorney denied it, and the challenge was overruled by the judge. Cosby did not mention the controversy when he spoke to reporters as he left the courthouse, instead thanking the "wonderful people" of Pittsburgh and local police who "made everything very, very smooth."

    The Iraqi asylum seeker who raped a 10-year-old boy in a swimming centre in Vienna will have his sentence reduced from six to four years after a judge felt his punishment was too “draconian”. On the 2nd of December 2015, the 20-year-old Iraqi Amir A. brutally raped a 10-year-old boy at the Theresienbad in Vienna and shocked the country after claiming that he had a “sexual emergency”. The Iraqi was found guilty of rape and sentenced to six years, but may see freedom much sooner as a judge has now reduced his sentence to four years, meaning he may be...

    It happened again last week. Two Turkish nationals in Schwerin, Germany were arrested for raping a 13-year-old girl after forcing themselves into her home.Recently, a judge in Germany acquitted a Turkish drug dealer of raping one of his customers last August. He had forced himself on her for four hours and left her incapacitated for weeks. He told the judge that in the culture from where he came, what she "had experienced as rape" might be considered merely "wild sex."What "culture" is this?According to the Turkish women's rights organization "We Will Stop the Murders of Women," which publishes monthly reports,...

    The 10-year-old rape victim whose unborn baby was aborted last week in India is not going home to her mother. The Hindustan Times reports child welfare authorities said they are concerned about the girl’s safety after her mother publicly asked that her husband — the man who allegedly raped the girl — be released from jail. When the girl was discharged from the hospital Monday, she was taken to a children’s home, according to the report. “The victim’s mother is more concerned of her rapist husband who impregnated her daughter than showing any interest in taking care of her,” child...

    Despite what the politically correct cultists claim, all cultures are not equal and cultures that do not respect women do not deserve to be respected. But that is not what is happening.

The judge argued that in “the mentality of the Turkish cultural circle,” what the woman “had experienced as rape” might be considered merely “wild sex.”...

    Nothing in the new Republican health care bill specifically addresses sexual assault or domestic violence whatsoever. What it does say is that states can apply for waivers that will allow insurance companies, under certain limited circumstances, to charge higher premiums to people based on their personal medical histories—that's it. (States that are granted the waivers must also set up special high-risk insurance pools to try and help defray costs for these people.) Under Obamacare, no such price variances based on preexisting conditions are permitted. Historically, conditions that could trigger higher premiums or coverage denials have been mostly chronic diseases and...

    Maryland prosecutors will drop rape and sex offense charges against two immigrant teens accused of attacking a 14-year-old classmate in a high school bathroom stall, according to attorneys in a case that shocked local parents, attracted international and White House attention and stoked the debate about illegal crossings into the U.S. In court on Friday, prosecutors said they will drop the sex assault case against Jose Montano, 17. On Thursday evening, they told a lawyer for Henry Sanchez Milian, 18, that they would also drop his sex assault case, according the lawyer, Andrew Jezic.

    By making rape-related medical treatment a preexisting condition, you have become an ally of rapists. It is hard being the victim of a sex crime, and you just made it harder by voting for a healthcare bill that includes an amendment making the medical treatment of rape a preexisting condition. You’ve provided one more obstacle for women who want to bring their perpetrators to justice. This latest impediment to reporting is not only unfair, it will make our communities less safe.

    'Stealthing' could be considered assault say experts about secret removal of condom during sex. Paper in Columbia Journal of Gender and Law examines little-known practice some say is 'rape-adjacent' Haley says she knows the trauma of sexual assault. The 20-year-old Edmonton woman says she has experienced multiple forms of it. But when she discloses the details of the latest instance, she says some people shrug it off. That's because Haley is referring to "stealthing," the secretive and non-consensual removal of a condom during otherwise consensual intercourse. (CBC has agreed to not publish Haley's full name as well as those of...

    A new study by the Paris Region Planning and Development Agency (IAU) has found that 56 per cent of women are afraid to use public transport due to concerns over sex attacks and theft. Le Parisien reports respondents’ insecurity as a “legitimate fear”, noting that 37-per-cent of robberies without violence and 39-per-cent of sexual assaults against women are carried out on public transport and at train stations. “Amongst female respondents, the fear of being attacked or robbed is so strong it prevents them from using public transport,” the IAU said. “Women are four times more likely (6.2 per cent) to...

    What you end up with when the moral barriers topple is, not least, the end of due process at American colleges and universities. It's a dreadful prospect you likely wouldn't imagine without having scanned some of the stories on the rape crisis said to be spreading across American campuses. Supposedly, college women are at immense and growing risk of assault by males who take advantage of opportunity and superior strength to "have their way," as the old euphemism had it. Naturally, the claims have invited federal attention. (Everything seems, these days, to invite federal attention.) The respected investigative reporter Stuart...

    Complaints are mounting against a Utah County judge who earlier this week praised a former Mormon bishop before sending him to prison for sexually abusing two women. Fourth District Judge Thomas Low on Wednesday became emotional as he handed down a prison sentence to Keith Robert Vallejo. Julia Kirby — who was 19 when Vallejo, her brother-in-law, abused her — told The Tribune after the sentencing that she was shocked by the judge's words to her abuser. Now, she plans to file a judicial complaint against him. And she's not the only one. "He completely disregarded her," Lawrence said. "He...
