A 21-year-old Mexican man was found not guilty of sexually assaulting a school girl because he “didn't enjoy” himself, a judge has ruled.
According to The Guardian, Diego Cruz “was one of four young men from prominent families in the coastal state of Veracruz who were nicknamed “Los Porkys” on social media after they were accused of seizing a classmate from their elite private school as she left a New Year’s party on 1 January 2015.”
On Monday, Judge Anuar González found that although Cruz was accused of touching the young girl's breasts and penetrating her with his fingers, he acted without “carnal intent” and was not guilty of assault.
The Judge also said that while the victim was forced into the car of one of her alleged attackers, she was “never helpless”. This is despite the fact that two of the other three suspects are accused of penetrating the victim.
Cruz fled to Spain, but was extradited back to Mexico. Human rights activists such as Estefanía Vela Barba were baffled by the case.
“Since there was no pleasure in the act, it was intended to cause humiliation. They were touching her, they were bothering her, so for the judge, if the intention wasn’t pleasure, it’s not sexual assault,” she said.
“There’s no disputing the facts. It’s not some crazy woman saying this, it’s coming from the judge’s mouth and he’s saying that if they touch you against your will, it might not be abuse,” she added.
With judges like this and thugs allowed to roam free, do you really blame Trump for wanting to build the wall?
