    Claim: Hillary Clinton successfully defended an accused child rapist and later laughed about the case.

    mostlyfalse.gifMOSTLY FALSE

    WHAT'S TRUE: In 1975, young lawyer Hillary Rodham was appointed to represent a defendant charged with raping a 12-year-old girl. Clinton reluctantly took on the case, which ended with a plea bargain for the defendant.

    WHAT'S FALSE: Hillary Clinton did not volunteer to be the defendant's lawyer, she did not laugh about the case's outcome, she did not assert that the complainant "made up the rape story," she did not claim she knew the defendant to be guilty, and she did not "free" the defendant.

    Well, he was CONVICTED in a court of law. And served nearly a year in prison for improper sexual fondling.

    An attorney's job is to get the best result possible for their client.

    You guys wanna get personally entangled with something like that? Or make it a "he said - he said" issue. Same thing.

    The forensic evidence was lost and mishandled. Hillary did an attorney's job.

    The guy paid a price with a jail term. Better than some of these privileged New England prep school guys, who get off Scot free, even today. For raping girls and even worse. Hey, you got the money, and a good attorney, no problem in the US. You walk free.

    I highly doubt that a feminist and child advocate would conduct herself in this fashion. Competent lawyers take the case as they find it. In other words, they will advocate strongly for their client's position but they will NEVER manufacture or hide evidence, deliberately misinterpret facts or applicable law, or proffer an interpretation of case law that is completely inconsistent with applicable precedent. We as Americans have an inalienable right to competent legal representation, even criminals. Representing an accused doesn't mean getting him off. It means giving him the benefit of reasonable doubt and working diligently to determine if the facts as they exist fit the elements of the crime for which the accused is being tried. This is the beauty of our adversarial system. Many people in prison now are there not because they committed the crime for which they were convicted, but because they had incompetent legal representation. Think about this: if lawyers took accusations or allegations as if they were proven facts, the United States would be full of convicts.
