Judge orders new trial in sexual battery case


Way to jump right on the bandwagon for the victims'. The students that work in this program do so for class credit only. I know for a fact that the student that did the work on this case went above and beyond his normal duties and personal safety to make this happen. There is a solid case here. And they do not see themselves as crusading heroes.

It isn't easy to get a new trial in a case like this. Once convicted, the presumption becomes guilty until proven innocent. I have faith that the system worked here, and will work in the new trial. Kudos to the students and staff at the Project for their continued hard work.
