    From what I have seen, there was plenty of evidence to charge many people with a variety of things without having to use the victim as a witness.

    There were a ton of witnesses and 3 different parties that saw what happened. To say that the case could not have gone forward is crazy.

    It's annoying when people show their extreme ignorance, it's even more annoying when they don't realize how little they know. I don't know about Missouri law, but where I live (in Texas) there's defense to statutory rape if the parties are within 3 years in age of each other (as long as it isn't forcible). Now tell me how you know for a fact that that defense does not apply here. While you're at it, tell me when you think an accused should be given Constitutional protections and when they shouldn't.

    What positive action did she take to cause this?
    The actions that she should be held responsible for did not involve the boy. They involved her home environment and life. She and her 13 year-old friend got drunk on alcohol that she (the victim) had stashed in her closet. She then reportedly started texting back and forth with the boy, and snuck out a window to go and be with the boys mentioned in the stories which have been published on this case. What she is guilty of is stupidity. I just don't understand her mother not pursuing this case vigorously.

    Because you've read about it now you know who should be convicted and of what. No even need for a trial. Ok.

    Its called personal responsiblity. Get loaded, pass out (proabably egging on the boys all night) get trained, dont whine.
    And getting so drunk in the age of camera phones, what are you thinking?

    Non of that obsloves what the guys did to her. Oscar was saying that the guys should not be held responsable because the girl was not held responsable for her actions.

    The girl didn't do anything to cause her rape at any of the three parties. Being drunk is not a Green light to rape someone.

    If you think you might want to pursue prosecution, but haven't decided for sure, we recommend that you make the police report right away, while the evidence is still present and your memory is still detailed. The district attorney will decide whether or not to pursue prosecution, however it is unusual for cases to proceed without the cooperation of the victim. And if prosecution is pursued, the chance of success will be much higher if you reported, and had evidence collected, immediately after the attack.

    Please learn to read. What does my post say?????

    It says charge. That is the first step to going to trial.

    You do understand in order to convict somebody of something, a trial is needed, right?

    What are you even talking about?

    So that really means it wasn't.



    Rice said charges were dropped for lack of evidence, but he added, declining to go into the specifics, that information brought to his attention regarding what happened “before, during and after” the incident also played a role in his actions.

    “There wasn’t any prosecuting attorney that could take that case to trial,” he said.

    “It had to be dismissed. And it was.”

    The parent of one of the teens at the Barnett house that night was the only one to comment briefly to The Star: “Our boys deserve an apology, and they haven’t gotten it yet.”

    In a later interview, Rice called it a case of “incorrigible teenagers” drinking alcohol and having sex. “They were doing what they wanted to do, and there weren’t any consequences. And it’s reprehensible. But is it criminal? No.”
    Based on the opinion of a small town prosecutor. If that was your daughter, would you accept that rationale based on the evidence that is public?

    Blood alcohol of the alleged victim of .13 seven hours after the incident, hospital rape kit confirming forceful sex, the suspect admitting to that sex occurred, witness statements confirming it happened, video confirming it happened.

    Honestly, the admission of sex by the suspect and the girls blood alcohol is enough evidence to prove sexual assault.
