well, i was blacked out (they think he dosed my drink) and the guy urinated all over my face hair, and neck.
If ya want my honest opinion, if its illegal to urinate in public or on statues (maybe not felony battery), but urinating on someones face where it can get in their mouth, nose, eyes, and ears, should be. It could cause bodily harm if he had some kind of disease, or I got sick or even choked on it! (I was completely blacked out!) But then again I am slightly knowledgeable about the criminal justice system so what is your professional opinion on the case, well at least that small part of it?
The detective on the case has since been let go, and there is some question of whether someone influenced his decisions. So it was a bad experience all around.
well the other question has to do with the rape kit collected at the hospital when i reported it. There were 2 sheriffs in the room and towards the end of the exam the lead det. showed up. about a week later much to my surprise, the detective told me that the rape kit was sent to the wrong place. However, as I understand it, the rape kit is stored in the hospital freezer and tested there, and then picked up by one of the officials on the case and taken to the state lab for further testing to meet the requirements to be used in charging the defendent. So how could it be SENT to the wrong place when it was their job to collect it and to stay within the legal seizure of evidence. Shouldnt one of those 2 officers or the detective have picked it up and transported it to the correct place? I was also told by the detective that it was " 99% " my fault. so there were some very questionable things with this case but i greatly appreciate your help!
