Accused rapist shows penis to jury to prove innocence
May 24, 2018 | 9:46pm



Now that’s junk justice.

A Connecticut man on trial for sexual assault was allowed to drop trousers and expose his penis to a stunned New Haven jury this week — to prove that it doesn’t match his accuser’s description.

The accuser says she was raped in 2012 by a stranger whose penis was lighter than the rest of his skin — and picked Desmond James, 26, out of a photo lineup as her attacker.


But James’ attorney on Wednesday argued that his client’s private parts are actually darker than the rest of his body — and the best way to prove it was to display his manhood.

Judge Elpedio Vitale agreed it was within James’ Sixth Amendment rights to defend himself by whipping his bits out in the hall of justice.

Miranda also argued that the case didn’t hang on what was hanging between James’ legs alone — claiming that DNA evidence in the victim’s rape kit was also consistent with James’ genetic profile.

11 years after a rape in Seattle, DNA leads to charges against Illinois man
Originally published May 25, 2018 at 4:42 pm



More than a decade after a woman was grabbed off the streets in downtown Seattle and raped, her alleged attacker has been identified through DNA after the victim’s rape kit — which at one time was among about 6,000 untested sexual-assault kits in the state — was finally analyzed and run through a national database.

Jonnie Lee Lay, a 48-year-old homeless sex offender now registered in Waukegan, Illinois, was charged this week with first-degree rape and a $500,000 warrant was issued for his arrest, according to King County prosecutors.

Lay’s criminal history includes convictions for third-degree assault with sexual motivation and failure to register as a sex offender, court records show.



On March 14, 2007, the then-44-year-old woman was walking near Second Avenue and Pike Street when she was pulled into the back seat of a white Cadillac. The driver dropped the woman and her assailant off in a wooded area near a homeless encampment, where the woman was thrown to the ground and raped.

During the attack, the man threatened to kill the woman with a screwdriver. When he told the woman he wanted her to work for him as a prostitute, she told him he would have to kill her first.
