Al­leged grop­ing by Bush dif­fi­cult to pros­e­cute

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - NATION -

4 HOUS­TON >> Al­le­ga­tions that for­mer Pres­i­dent Ge­orge H.W. Bush in­ap­pro­pri­ately touched six women in­volve po­ten­tial crimes pun­ish­able by fines or jail time, if they had been pros­e­cuted.

All but one of the cases is in­el­i­gi­ble un­der state laws that limit when a pros­e­cu­tion can be­gin af­ter an al­leged crime, and sev­eral lawyers in­ter­viewed said that it would be dif­fi­cult to win a con­vic­tion against Bush, who has vas­cu­lar parkin­son­ism, a rare syn­drome that mim­ics Parkin­son’s dis­ease.
