    Then the question is: Can one person be convicted of a felony simply on the word of another? I certainly hope not.

The prosecution sees that she was drinking or slept with someone else recently so then she must be lying? The way these cases are perceived is pretty messed up.
    BAC would be helpful if her level was .16-.20, wouldn't it? She would be unable to give consent. A person accusing anyone else of a crime should be judged on their credibility. We do it all the time in the courtroom. "Ms. Jones, is it true that you were convicted of perjury?" That's relevant. "Is it true that you were convicted of fraud?" That's relevant.

    A woman's past sexual conduct isn't admissible as far as I know. Nor should it be.

    Both of them are guilty of being incredibly moronic.

    Him - For not realizing that he isn't a regular, everyday, run of the mill student. There are/will be people who want whatever they perceive his magic to be. Most of those people can/will do him no good. Also, there is no future in purposely banging drunk women. It isn't worth it. In fact, it isn't all that enjoyable unless both of you got blasted and ended up in bed. Even then it's better when you aren't ****ed up. Point is, it can happen that a sober woman feels terribly guilty and embarrassed and ashamed for her behavior when she was drunk. If we were all gentlemen women wouldn't feel that way. Unfortunately there are more than a few boys - not men - out there who are complete sh*t heels the morning after. Women can't be sure. Wilson, good or bad, right or wrong, gentleman or not should realize that his celebrity is a double edged sword. Pun intended.

    Her: In a perfect world women could sleep with whomever they bloody well please just as men do and not worry about it. Well, that day isn't here yet. Women should be able to drink just as men do and not have to worry about being taken advantage of. That day is far from being here. Is it right or fair or just. No, it is reality. A drunk woman isn't "asking for it" nor does she deserve being taken advantage of, but that doesn't change reality. Our woman in question should not have gotten trashed. If she planned on getting trashed she should have been with people she trusted completely and she should have had a buddy system thing going with other girl friends. No women should accept any drink from someone she doesn't know. At that age and in college no one should.
