Rape Trial Goes to Jury

He jammed the barrel of his pistol in her mouth and threatened to kill her. She testified that she was robbed and forced to drive around Newark in her car for fifteen minutes when she was raped and sodomized.  Incredibly, upon cross-examination, she testified that she couldn’t identify the suspect.  My client was arrested in her car five hours later. He found the car abandoned off the street, I argued. Her inability to identify my client was enough to create reasonable doubt. J.S. was convicted of theft of a motor vehicle,  and acquitted of all charges, including rape and attempted murder. – Newark Star-Ledger
