Ok­la­homa rul­ing causes out­rage

Fiji Sun - - World News -

Ok­la­homa City: An Ok­la­homa court has stunned lo­cal pros­e­cu­tors with a dec­la­ra­tion that state law doesn’t crim­i­nalise oral sex with a vic­tim who is com­pletely un­con­scious. The rul­ing, a unan­i­mous de­ci­sion by the state’s crim­i­nal ap­peals court, is spark­ing out­rage among crit­ics who say the ju­di­cial sys­tem was en­gaged in vic­tim-blam­ing and buy­ing out­dated no­tions about rape.
