The Judge Gets Judged


Philadelphia’s Bar Association rebuked the judge who refused to punish a rapist since the victim was a prostitute. No comment from the judge but her lawyer put things nicely in perspective: ”The transcript doesn’t necessarily tell the whole story,” Bochetto said. He said Deni also considers a witness’ tone of voice, demeanor and other factors in her rulings.”

Can’t imagine what those “other” factors were.
