Lawyer Blames 13-Year-Old “Temptress” For Being Raped


A MISSOULA, MONTANA DEFENSE ATTORNEY REFERRED TO A 13-YEAR-OLD VICTIM AS OF SEXUAL ASSAULT IS A TEMPTRESS HOW DID IT START

ACCORDING TO COURT DOCUMENTS: THIS IS AN ADDICTION RECOVERY PLACE FOR TEENAGERS LISA KAUFFMAN, THE DEFENSE ATTORNEY FOR GRIFFITH SAID: LATER OF THE PROSECUTOR'S REPEATED PROTESTS, HERE IS WHAT HAPPENED AND THEN LATER IN A HEATED EXCHANGE WITH THE PROSECUTOR SHE SAID: AFTER THAT KAUFFMAN APOLOGIZED SO LISA KAUFFMAN IS AN EMBARRASSMENT TO NOT JUST WOMEN, TO HUMANITY BECAUSE SHE THINKS IT'S OKAY TO POINT TO A 13-YEAR-OLD CHILD AND ESSENTIALLY BLAME HER FOR BEING TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF AS SHE WAS IN A REHAB CLINIC TRYING TO GET CLEAN AND A 26-YEAR-OLD GUY TOOK ADVANTAGE OF HER YOU ARE A TERRIBLE PERSON AND YOU SHOULDN'T BE AN ATTORNEY

I GET IF YOU ARE A DEFENSE ATTORNEY YOU ARE GOING TO FIND ANY AND ALL WAYS TO TRY AND DEFEND THAT PERSON BECAUSE THAT IS YOUR JOB BUT I BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN DO YOUR JOB WITHOUT BEING INCREDIBLY INSULTING TO THE VICTIM WHO WAS JUST TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF CALLING HER TEMPTRESS? WHAT ARE WE, IN AN ISIS CAMP SOMEWHERE WHERE YOU GO AHEAD AND BLAME THE FEMALE VICTIM WHO WAS JUST RAPED OR SEXUALLY ASSAULTED? DO YOU WANT TO PUT WOMEN IN BURQAS? IS THAT WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE? THAT IS INSANE YOU SHOULD SEE HER MAKEUP AND THE WAY SHE DRESSES ARE YOU SAYING THAT MEN CANíT CONTROL THEMSELVES WHEN THEY SEE AN ATTRACTIVE WOMAN, WHICH IS INSULTING TO MEN, AND THAT WOMEN WHO PRESENT THEMSELVES IN A CERTAIN WAY DESERVE TO BE SEXUALLY ASSAULTED OR RAPED? WHAT IS HER THINKING HERE? I GET THAT IF YOU ARE A DEFENSE ATTORNEY, YOU HAVE TO SAY SOME STUFF IN WHAT IS SAD IS WHAT THIS DOES TO THE VICTIMS IN THESE CASES AND THAT IS WHY YOU HEAR TIME AND TIME AGAIN HOW DIFFICULT IT IS FOR VICTIMS TO COME FORWARD BECAUSE OF NOT ONLY ONCE IT'S OUT THERE PEOPLE KNOW AND THEY'RE LOOKING AT YOU AS A VICTIM OF ONE OF THESE THINGS BUT ALSO, THE PROCESS OF DEFENDING THE ACCUSED IS TO SAY THAT IT WAS THE VICTIMS FAULT

TO SAY SHE BURDEN ON HERSELF THE BEST LINE OF THIS ALL, AND IT IS WEIRD TO CALL THE BEST LINE, BUT IT WAS SUPER ACCURATE FROM THE JUDGE IN RESPONSE TO THE IDEA THAT THIS GIRL WAS A TEMPTRESS AND THAT THE DEFENDANT HAD A LACK OF TRAINING IN THIS AREA THE JUDGE SAID, IT IS HARDLY A TRAINING ISSUE NOT TO HAVE SEX WITH A 13-YEAR-OLD GOOD IT IS JUST SO OBVIOUS IN THAT CASE

SO YOU WANT A DRUG REHAB PLACE TO SPEND RESOURCES TO TRAIN GROWN-UP MEN ABOUT HOW IT IS UNLAWFUL TO SLEEP WITH 13-YEAR-OLDS WHO ARE TRYING TO GET CLEAN I SAID DROP DRUG REHAB CENTER YOU THINK THAT THAT MAKES SENSE HE IS 26 YEARS OLD, AND A CHILD THAT IS ABSURD IS SO RIDICULOUS AND THEN HOW MUCH FURTHER DO YOU NEED TO GO THAN JUST THAT ONE MIND? DO YOU NEED TO THEN HAVE THEM COMMON SAY WE'RE DOING THE TRAINING FOR THIS

WE ADDRESS THE 13-YEAR-OLD GIRL AS ATTEMPT DRESSED AND YOU HAVE TO RESISTER FOR THE NEXT 20 HOURS JUST DON'T HAVE SEX WITH 13-YEAR-OLDS THEN ARE DONE WITH TRAINING LET'S PUT THIS METHOD OF DEFENSE OR APPLY THIS METHOD OF DEFENSE IN A DIFFERENT CONTEXT AND SEE HOW RIDICULOUS IT IS I'M WALKING HOME, I SEE A CAR AND SOMEONE HAS LEFT THEIR LAPTOP, THEIR MACBOOK PRO ON THE PASSENGER SEAT

THE CAR IS LOCKED BUT I SEE THE COMPUTER AND SINCE IT IS RIGHT THERE IN PLAIN SIGHT, I DECIDE I'M GOING TO BREAK THE WINDOW, BREAK INTO THE CAR AND STILL THE COMPUTER I GET CAUGHT DO YOU THINK IT IS A GOOD DEFENSE FOR ME OR MY LAWYER TO SAY WELL, YOU KNOW, THE VICTIM HERE DECIDED TO LEAVE THE COMPUTER IN PLAIN SIGHT AND AS A RESULT, THE VICTIM IS TO BLAME HERE THAT IS ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS THE PERSON WHO HAS COMMITTED THE CRIME AS THE CRIMINAL

THE PERSON WHO STEALS A LAPTOP, IN THIS CASE IT WOULD BE ME, I WOULD BE THE CRIMINAL BUT THEN AGAIN, YOU DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH TRAINING ON HOW TO NOT STEAL LAPTOPS IT JUST GETS MORE AND MORE ABSURD WHEN YOU APPLY IT TO ANY OTHER CONTEXT I WASN'T TRAINED ON HOW NOT TO BREAK A WINDOW AND STEAL OTHER PEOPLE'S PROPERTY I DIDN'T GET THAT IN WALKING DOWN THE STREET TRAINING

IT IS CRAZY TO FOLLOW UP ON WHAT HAPPENED, A SECOND COUNT OF SEXUAL INTERCOURSE AS PART OF THE THING IN THE JUDGE SIMPLY SAID LISTEN, IF I WERE TO IMAGINE ONE SITUATION IN WHICH I COULD SHOW SOME KIND OF UNDERSTANDING OF THE OTHER GUYS SITUATION, THE 26-YEAR-OLD SITUATION IT WOULD BE IF HE WAS INEXPERIENCED AND THEN WE HAD AN OLDER BUT STILL MINOR PERSONALITY DISORDER SOMETHING LIKE THAT, BUT SHE'S LIKE, THE JUDGE SAID THIS GUYS BEEN AROUND THE BLOCK AND HE SEEMED LIKE A PREDATOR SO 20 YEARS WAS WHAT HE WAS SENTENCED TO DUST 16 OF THOSE SUSPENDED I WAS GOING TO SAY, 20 YEARS THE IS FOUR YEARS THE JUDGE RECOMMENDS SEXUAL OFFENDER TREATMENT OUT OF THE SENTENCING IS GONE THROUGH BUT THIS IS THE APPARENT COMPROMISE BETWEEN WHAT WAS SUGGESTED BY THE PAROLE COUNSELOR AND WHAT THE JUDGE CAME DOWN WITH WAS A RECOMMENDATION OF SEXUAL OFFENDER TREATMENT DURING THE SUSPENDED PORTION OF THE SENTENCE BUT THE JUDGE SAID THERE'S NO WAY I'M GOING TO SUSPEND THE WHOLE THING, LIKE THE DEFENSE SUGGESTED THAT THAT'S THAT
