Rape Trial Goes to Jury

He jammed the barrel of his pistol in her mouth and threatened to kill her, but upon cross-examination, she admitted that she couldn’t identify him.  She testified that she was robbed at gunpoint and forced to drive around Newark in her car for twenty minutes when she was raped and sodomized.  Our client,  J.S. was arrested in her car six hours later.   We argued that he found the car abandoned off the street. In spite of the time, the client allegedly spent with the victim,  her inability to identify our 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
