Man in America free after 35 yrs in false rape case

Posted by iluvshrutiverma on December 17, 2009

Bartow, Florida (CNN) — After more than three decades in prison, a Florida man was set free Thursday after a DNA test showed he did not kidnap and rape a 9-year-old boy in 1974.

“I’m not angry,” James Bain, 54, told reporters after a brief hearing in Bartow, Florida.

Bain was 19 when he was convicted on charges of kidnapping, burglary and strong-arm rape. He received a life sentence. He’s going home for the first time in 35 years.

“I got God in my head,” said Bain, surrounded by supporters and wearing a T-shirt with “Not Guilty” across the front. “I knew one day he will reveal me.”

Of the 245 people in the United States whom DNA testing has exonerated, none has spent more time behind bars than Bain, according to the Innocence Project, a national organization dedicated to exonerating wrongfully convicted people through such testing.

In 2001, Florida passed a statute allowing cases to be reopened for DNA testing. Bain submitted handwritten motions four times seeking such testing but was denied each time. His fifth attempt was successful after an appeals court ruled he was entitled to a hearing.

Bain initially was expected to be freed with some conditions as the state wanted a further review of DNA test results. But the review was completed ahead of Thursday’s hearing.

Polk County State Attorney Jerry Hill told the judge that DNA testing had excluded Bain from the crime.

“He’s just not connected with this particular incident,” Hill said.

“Mr. Bain, I’m now signing the order, sir,” the judge said, referring to an order vacating the judgment and sentence.

“You are a free man. Congratulations,” he said, and the courtroom erupted into applause.

In 1974, the 9-year-old Lake Wales, Florida, victim had told police that his attacker had bushy sideburns and a mustache. After being shown five photos of potential suspects, the victim picked out one of Bain, the police report said.

The victim, now 44, lives in Florida and was made aware of Bain’s situation, according to multiple sources.

Speaking to reporters Thursday, Bain said he was going home with family. “I’m going to see my mom,” he said.

His mother, Sarah Reed, has been in and out of hospitals in recent years. She said she is putting her house and her car in her son’s name. “I want him to have something by himself. He’s suffered enough,” she said.

Asked about prison, Bain said, “So many things can happen to you at any time.” But now, “I guess I kind of feel like when they first landed on the moon. We have touchdown,” he said, laughing.

Man in America spent 3 yr in jail on false rape complaint

Posted by iluvshrutiverma on December 11, 2009

Jail

NEW YORK — A New Jersey woman whose false story about a gang rape sent an innocent man to prison has pleaded guilty to perjury.

Biurny Peguero (BEE’-ur-nee pay-GEHR’-oh) told police she was kidnapped and raped at knifepoint in 2005 by three men, including William McCaffrey.

McCaffrey was convicted and sentenced to 20 years in prison. He served three years before Peguero admitted this spring she had lied. New tests showed DNA from a bite on her arm wasn’t from McCaffrey, and he was released in August.

Peguero pleaded guilty Monday in state Supreme Court in Manhattan. The married mother of two from Union City, N.J., faces a maximum seven years in prison when she’s sentenced in February.

She told authorities she lied because her friends weren’t sympathetic after her encounter with men who had frightened but not attacked her.

SKorea scraps decades-old sex law targeting men

Posted by iluvshrutiverma on November 26, 2009

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/world/rest-of-world/SKorea-scraps-decades-old-sex-law-targeting-men/articleshow/5271779.cms

SEOUL: South Korea’s Constitutional Court struck down a decades-old law Thursday that had punished men for making false promises of marriage to engage in sexual relations with women.
The nine-member court ruled in a 6-3 verdict that the law infringed upon women’s dignity and privacy and didn’t reflect the current social trend on sex and individualism.

The ruling said the law treated women like “infants,” and went against the government’s “constitutional obligation to aim for the equality of men and women.”

Despite the ruling, South Korea remains deeply conservative and is still influenced by a Confucian heritage after decades of Western influence. Last year, the Constitutional Court upheld a law against adultery, rejecting complaints the law is outdated and constitutes an invasion of privacy. Those convicted under the anti-adultery law face prison sentences of up to two years.

The law tossed out Thursday had punished South Korean men who deceived their girlfriends into having sex with up to a two-year prison term and a fine of more than $4,000. Enacted in 1953, the law only held men liable for false promises of marriage.

“The government should refrain from interfering in men’s sexual activities of tempting women in an unharmful manner,” the verdict said.

Korean Womenlink, a major women’s rights group in Seoul, said it welcomed the court’s verdict.

“It had not been a law that protected women’s human rights but a law that protected women’s chastity,” Korean Womenlink said in a statement.

The court acted on petitions filed by two South Korean men who were convicted of violating the law in recent years.

Court spokesman Noh Hee-bum said the verdict means that the law was immediately abolished and all South Korean men penalized under the law could be acquitted of earlier convictions and receive state compensation if they file for a retrial.

The number of South Korean men indicted under the law had been gradually decreasing, with 42 indicted in 2006 compared with 269 in 1981, according to a court release.

After recession, it’s “mancession”

Posted by iluvshrutiverma on November 16, 2009

The economic recession in the UK has now given way to “mancession”, where an increasing number of women are bagging jobs as compared to men.

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/life/relationships/work/After-recession-its-mancession/articleshow/5236019.cms

The data from the Office for National Statistics reveals that over 120,000 women secured new part-time jobs in the last quarter, while 50,000 men were forced to roam about jobless, reports the Daily Star .British women have been largely finding employment in education and health sectors, where the personnel have actually increased in the last quarter.And with thousands made redundant by the construction industry, the current number of employed men in Britain is the lowest in the last ten years.

American economists coined the term “mancession”, where men were facing four fifths of all job losses.

For those who think the male torture is prevalent only in India, look at what happens in America:
