GuerrillaSodomite saidI agree. I would probably trust the word of the escort...
Perhaps I would, too. But "probably" is not the standard in a criminal case, at least not in the US, the standard I'm using.
Here the requirement is "beyond a reasonable doubt." Where the defendant has the presumption of innocence in court, and guilt must be proven without doubt against him or her.
Is Boy George really guilty of this? Perhaps, not my point here. Rather my purpose was to report this, and stimulate comment. To quote my OP: "I'm not sure what to make of this guy, or this case."
