    Because it's never been about "saving babies"...it's about keeping the relationship between men and women in a place where men have the power and women are stripped of any potential power.

    How the US dealt a cruel blow to rape victims

    The United Nations Security Council this week passed a resolution to combat sexual violence in war and conflict. It should have been a proud moment when leading nations finally took head-on action against an ongoing atrocity.

    Instead it's a shameful episode, because the United States profoundly undermined the resolution after threatening to veto it, over the Trump administration's supposedly "pro-life" fixation on sexual and reproductive health.

    It should be obvious: Rape as a weapon of war is evil, and needs not just condemnation, but action and support for prevention, treatment and healing.

    The UN passed its resolution on rape in conflict, but only with crucial language stripped out.

    According to reporting in the Guardian, the American mission to the UN objected to language that "urges United Nations entities and donors to provide nondiscriminatory and comprehensive health services, including sexual and reproductive health, psychosocial, legal and livelihood support and other multi-sectoral services for survivors of sexual violence, taking into account the specific needs of persons with disabilities."

    The United States, with help from China and Russia, also effectively defanged the resolution of one of its most important elements: A body that would have been tasked with monitoring atrocities and reporting them to UN monitors.

    It's bizarre and frankly cruel to oppose a resolution about rape by objecting to sexual and reproductive health care. Not to put too fine a point on it, but rape is a crime that directly impacts a woman's sexual and reproductive health.

    Rape can damage a woman's sex organs. It can result in a sexually transmitted infection. It can result in an unwanted pregnancy -- something that can compound a rape survivor's trauma. Any standard of care for sexual violence survivors includes providing sexual and reproductive health resources.

    For rape survivors who are able to get medical care within a few days of the attack, that means prophylaxis to prevent the transmission of HIV and other infections; emergency contraception to prevent pregnancy; an exam to gather evidence; treatment of any injuries; and psychological care.

    For survivors who don't receive care until much later, the standard of care includes treatment of infections and injuries, as well as psychological care (something that, in crisis settings, is in high demand and short supply). And yes, rape victims should also be entitled to end their pregnancies -- something that is safe and legal in much of the world.

    The previous version of the UN resolution didn't mention the word "abortion," but that's what the Trump administration seems to have read into it. American abortion feuds aside, it is already US law that American taxpayer dollars cannot fund elective abortions overseas -- but they can pay for procedures for rape victims. That doesn't actually happen, to the detriment of a great many women. But this UN resolution -- which is specifically about wartime rape victims -- was squarely within the bounds of existing US law, even if you interpret it to include abortion care.

    And that's the sticking point: The American pro-life movement is exceptionally powerful behind the scenes, and has significant influence on the Republican Party -- to the point where its interests override laws passed by Congress.

    I'm a journalist who often covers this exact issue: access to reproductive health care in conflict and crisis zones. I've met women from the Eastern Congo to Colombia to Myanmar who have survived the unthinkable. Far too often, they didn't have access to the care they needed. Among those who became pregnant, some were forced to give birth, and maintain deeply complicated feelings; for others, restrictions on their options didn't prevent them from ending their pregnancies. It just made their choices much less safe.

    This original resolution did not promise to give rape survivors abortion on demand; nor would it have the power to do so. It simply aimed to give women the basics: Sexual and reproductive health care for what is, inarguably and biologically, a sexual and reproductive violation. How shameful that the American government is in league with some of the world's worst human rights abusers in asserting that, in the name of "life," we won't help the world's most vulnerable rape victims recover.

    The Alabama House voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to outlaw almost all abortions in the state as conservatives take aim at the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion.

    The Republican-dominated House of Representatives voted 74-3 for legislation that would make it a felony to perform an abortion on a woman at any stage of her pregnancy. The proposal passed after Democrats walked out of the chamber after sometimes emotional debate with opponents and supporters crowding the gallery. The bill now moves to the Alabama Senate.

    Supporters said the bill is intentionally designed to conflict with the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion nationwide, hoping to spark court cases that might prompt the justices to revisit Roe. The bill contains an exemption for those situations when there is a serious risk to the mother's health, but not for rape and incest.

    "The heart of this bill is to confront a decision that was made by the courts in 1973 that said the baby in a womb is not a person," said Republican Rep. Terri Collins of Decatur.

    Republicans in the chamber applauded after the bill was approved after more than two hours of sometimes emotional debate. Collins acknowledged that such a ban would likely be struck down by lower courts, but she said the aim is eventually to get to the Supreme Court.

    Without the numbers to stop the bill, Democrats walked off the House floor ahead of the vote, calling the proposal both extreme and fiscally irresponsible. They said the ban would cost the state money for a potentially expensive legal fight that could be spent on other needs.

    Rep. Louise Alexander, a Democrat, said the choice to give birth to a child should be left up to a woman, and the decision should not be made on the floor of the Alabama Legislature.

    "You don't know why I may want to have an abortion. It may be because of my health. It may be because of many reasons. Until all of you in this room walk in a woman's shoes, y'all don't know," Alexander said.

    Emboldened by new conservatives on the Supreme Court, abortion opponents in several states are seeking to incite new legal fights in the hopes of challenging Roe v. Wade. The Alabama bill comes on the heels of several states considering or approving bans on abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which occurs in about the sixth week of pregnancy.

    The Alabama bill attempts to go farther by banning abortion at any stage of pregnancy.

    House Republicans voted down Democrats' attempt to amend the bill to add an exemption for rape and incest. Representatives voted 72-26 to table the proposed amendment.

    "They would not even allow an exception for rape and incest. ... What does that say to the women in this state," House Minority Leader Anthony Daniels.

    An ex-school bus driver pleaded guilty to raping a 14-year-old girl. He got probation

    A former school bus driver who pleaded guilty to raping a 14-year-old girl will not receive any prison time, according to the sentence handed down by a New York State Supreme Court judge.
    The victim was 14 when she was she assaulted by Shane Piche on June 10, 2018, outside the upstate New York city of Watertown, Jefferson County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Patricia Dziuba told CNN Tuesday. Piche is 25, according to CNN affiliate WWNY.
    Piche waived indictment in February and was sentenced last Thursday to probation for 10 years. According to the certificate of disposition, he must register as a Level 1 sex offender and pay fees of $1,425. He pleaded guilty to third-degree rape.
    The New York sex offender website describes Level 1 as an offender with a "low risk of re-offense." Piche's address would not be listed on the registry, just his zip code.

    Piche met the victim as a school bus driver and "maintained communication" with her on social media, Dziuba said. That led to him inviting her to his home, plying her with alcohol, and then raping her, according to the prosecutor.
    Prosecutors originally asked for a "split to probation," which is a mix of jail time and up to 10 years' probation, Dziuba said. Although they could have asked for up to four years of prison, prosecutors wanted Piche to better learn how to control his urges and to learn proper boundaries, she said.

    A Florida man fatally shot his ?disrespectful? wife at point-blank range as she sat on a couch ? because she wouldn?t shut up, police said.

    Fernando Leopoldo De Baere, 73, then coolly walked to a neighbor?s home after the shooting at a Plantation home late Wednesday and confessed to killing 47-year-old Marisa Sherman, according to a police report obtained by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

    De Baere, whose legs and boxer shorts were spattered with blood, told responding officers that he and Sherman were arguing about her interactions with a former co-worker when he got upset about the disrespectful ?way that she was talking to him,? according to the report.

    De Baere said he told Sherman to stop, but the offending banter continued, prompting him to grab a .38-caliber revolver and shoot his wife in the face ?one or two times? from roughly 3 feet away.

    ?She still would not listen to him,? the report said.

    Sherman was pronounced dead at the scene. No one else was inside the home at the time aside from De Baere, WPLG reports.

    De Baere put the gun used in the shooting back inside a closet before going to a neighbor?s house to admit what he had just done, police said. Sherman was found sitting upright on a living room couch with an apparent gunshot wound to the face, according to the station.

    Detectives found the suspected murder weapon in a master bedroom closet, where De Baere had told them it would be. Two spent casings were found inside the weapon, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

    De Baere remained held without bail Monday at Broward Main Jail in Fort Lauderdale, online records show. It?s unclear if he?s hired an attorney.

    Mississippi lawmaker punched his wife because she undressed too slowly for sex

    Mississippi House Speaker Philip Gunn on Tuesday said he wants a state representative accused of domestic violence to resign if allegations are true that he punched his wife in the face for not undressing quickly enough when he wanted to have sex.

    Gunn in a statement called the alleged actions of Republican state Rep. Doug McLeod “unacceptable.”

    McLeod was arrested Saturday at his home in Lucedale.

    A George County Sheriff’s Department investigative report obtained by the Sun Herald says McLeod, 58, was visibly drunk when deputies arrived at the family’s home Saturday night.

    Deputies report McLeod had punched his wife and bloodied her nose. They found blood on the bed and bedroom floor.

    When McLeod opened the door and officers told him they were responding to a report of a domestic assault, they wrote that he replied “Are you kidding me?”

    The deputies said they could hear McLeod when he walked back inside, yelling that “the cops are here.”

    “Mr. McLeod had slurred speech and walked slow in a zigzag pattern,” deputies wrote, adding he was so inebriated he had to grab a handrail to maintain his balance.

    When deputies entered, they said two women were standing at the top of a stairwell and both appeared frightened. McLeod’s wife eventually came outside after deputies assured her they would keep her away from her husband.

    The deputy said McLeod’s wife was shaking and upset. McLeod’s wife said her husband was drunk and “just snapped,” as he often does when under the influence of alcohol, the report said.

    Another woman present said McLeod’s wife came running up to her room, her face bloodied. The woman shut the door and locked it with McLeod’s wife inside.

    The other woman said McLeod started banging on the door and telling the women to open it. He told the other woman if she didn’t open the door, he’d “kill her (expletive) dog.”

    McLeod’s wife did not want go to the hospital by ambulance, but assured authorities she’d have her daughter take her to get checked so authorities would have a report of the injuries.

    George County Sheriff Keith Harvard told the paper the investigation is still open.

    The Associated Press reported that McLeod is free on bail and didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

    McLeod has represented George and Stone counties since 2012. He’s unopposed for reelection this year.

    LOS ANGELES, Calif. (FOX 11) - He is the leader of La Luz Del Mundo church but now, Joaquin Garcia is behind bars accused of human trafficking and much more.

    California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced on Tuesday that mega-church leader Joaquin Garcia and others associated with him face charges of human trafficking, production of child pornography, forcible rape of a minor, among other felonies.

    Becerra says Garcia committed the crimes between 2015 and 2018 while leading La Luz Del Mundo, an international religious organization headquartered in Mexico with over one million followers reported worldwide.

    In the criminal complaint, it is alleged that Garc?a and his "co-defendants" allegedly coerced victims into performing sexual acts by telling them that if they went against any of his desires or wishes as "the Apostle," that they were going against God.

    A copy of the criminal complaint is available on the California Attorney General's website.

    The other individuals named in the complaint are Alondra Ocampo, Azalea Rangel Melendez, and Susana Medina Oaxaca, all of whom are affiliated with La Luz Del Mundo. In addition to Garc?a, Alondra Ocampo and Susana Medina Oaxaca were also arrested.

    An arrest warrant has also been issued for Azalea Rangel Melendez, who is currently at large.

    Anyone who believed they may have been a victim of sexual abuse or have information about incidents of sexual misconduct related to anyone who may be involved in this case is asked to call 323-765-2100 or you can file a complaint online at https://oag.ca.gov/LLDM.

    LOS ANGELES -- The leader and self-proclaimed apostle of La Luz del Mundo, a Mexico-based church with branches in the U.S. that claims over 1 million followers, has been charged with human trafficking and child rape, California officials announced Tuesday.

    Joaqu?n Garc?a and a follower of the church, 24-year-old Susana Medina Oaxaca, were arrested Monday after landing at Los Angeles International Airport, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra's office said.

    Around 1,000 worshippers gathered at the headquarters of La Luz del Mundo in Guadalajara, Jalisco, on Tuesday evening to pray for Garc?a as he was held in Los Angeles on $25 million bail.

    Garc?a, 50, faces 26 counts of felony charges that range from human trafficking and production of child pornography to rape of a minor. The charges detail a series of disturbing allegations involving three girls and one woman between 2015 and 2018 in Los Angeles County.

    The fundamentalist Christian church, whose name translates to The Light of the World, was founded in 1926 by Garc?a's grandfather. It has been the subject of child sex abuse allegations for years but authorities in Mexico have never filed criminal charges. It has more than 15,000 churches in 58 countries, according to its website. The church's followers must adhere to a strict moral code in exchange for the promise of eternal salvation.

    Garc?a - who was a minister in Los Angeles and other parts of Southern California before becoming the church's leader - coerced the victims into performing sex acts by telling them that refusing would be going against God, authorities said. He allegedly forced the victims, who were members of the church, to sexually touch themselves and each other. One of his co-defendants also allegedly took nude photographs of the victims and sent the pictures to Garc?a.

    Garc?a told one of the victims and others in 2017, after they had completed a "flirty" dance wearing "as little clothing as possible," that kings can have mistresses and an apostle of God cannot be judged for his actions, the complaint states.

    "Crimes like those alleged in this complaint have no place in our society. Period," Becerra said in a press release. "We must not turn a blind eye to sexual violence and trafficking in our state."

    The attorney general's investigation began in 2018, prompted in part by a tip to the state's Department of Justice through an online clergy abuse complaint form.

    David Correa, a spokesman from the church's headquarters, said in a phone call that they learned about the charges from the media.

    "We categorically deny those false accusations," Correa said. "We know him personally and he is an honorable and honest man."

    Church officials said Garc?a has always behaved lawfully and they rejected the attorney general's charges.

    The church's statement Tuesday said they hoped the accusations would not lead to discrimination and religious intolerance against its followers.

    A third follower, Alondra Ocampo, 36, was arrested in Los Angeles County and is being held ahead of her arraignment Wednesday in Los Angeles. A fourth defendant, Azalea Rangel Melendez, remains at large.

    It wasn't immediately clear whether the defendants had an attorney.

    In May, an opera concert at Palacio de Bellas Artes, the main cultural venue in Mexico, generated controversy because in some places it was presented as a tribute to Garc?a. Critics said a secular state such as Mexico shouldn't use a public place for that purpose.

    The work, "The Guardian of the Mirror," was broadcast on social networks and screened outside the Palace, with the church's followers in the audience.

    La Luz del Mundo denied that it was an homage and said the opinions expressed in social networks were not promoted by the institution.

    Airport police referred media inquiries to Customs and Border Patrol, which did not immediately have a comment.

    MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) - An alleged serial rapist already charged in attacks in Minneapolis has been charged with additional assaults, officials announced Tuesday.

    Between November 2018 and March 2019, Kenyatta Buckles, 24, reportedly robbed, assaulted and raped or attempted to rape women, many of whom he arranged to meet online. He faces several charges including first-degree criminal sexual conduct, assault and robbery.

    In November 2018, Minneapolis police received a walk-in report from a woman who said someone tried to sexually assault her several days ago. The victim reported that she works as an escort and posted an ad online. A man replied to her ad and arranged to meet her outside his apartment building on 3rd Avenue South in Minneapolis.

    According to the charges, a man later identified as Buckles brought the woman to a bedroom in a vacant apartment, took out a knife, and reportedly told her, "shut the f*** up b**** or I'll kill you." The woman began to fight back and ran from the apartment building screaming. She was able to escape, and he began texting her threats.

    The victim later posted online about her encounter. She reportedly got responses from 12 different women who said they had similar experiences in the same area with a man who fit the description.

    Throughout the investigation, officers connected Buckles to several similar crimes including sexual assaults, kidnappings and robberies.

    Officers arrested Buckles in March 2019 in connection with other cases and recovered several cell phones. Police later learned of two instances in which Buckles used the victims' cell phones to record the assaults.

    In one of the assaults, Buckles left his hat in a victim's car. DNA testing from the hat matched his profile in the police database.

    Here is the latest topic at the Southern Baptist Convention: Oh my god, some women actually think they are people!

    https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/...t-13963293.php

    Houston-based Bible teacher Beth Moore, one of the most widely recognized evangelical women in America, has highlighted the issue of sexual abuse from her stage for years. With her thick Southern drawl, she has told audiences how she was abused as a child, often sliding her personal story into her larger message about Jesus.

    As thousands of Southern Baptists prepare to arrive this week in Birmingham, Alabama, for their annual meeting, many have expected for months that it would focus on questions of how to handle sexual abuse and coverups in their own churches. Moore is expected to be there, sitting on a panel on sexual abuse with several others, including the president of the Southern Baptist Convention.
    Recommended Video

    But in the run-up to the meeting, Moore has become a focus of attention. In a recent response to a tweet, Moore, who has nearly a million Twitter followers, teasingly suggested that she was planning to preach on Mother's Day. Except, as is her practice, Moore did not use the words "preach" or "sermon" to refer to the talk she gave on the holiday in front of the congregation at Bayou City Fellowship, where her son-in-law is pastor and she is a member.

    This one, among a number she has given under similar circumstances, was about the biblical story of Hagar, the Egyptian handmaiden of Abraham and Sarai.

    The debate isn't about what Moore said, but the idea that she would be "preaching" at all. Southern Baptist teaching prohibits women from holding the position of pastor but does not bar women from preaching in front of men. In reality, however, many Southern Baptists believe that women should not have authority over men, and that by teaching men, let alone "preaching," they are exerting authority. So it is rare for Southern Baptist women to preach or teach the Bible in front of men during a traditional Sunday service.

    Moore's social media thread attracted immediate notice.

    "One thing we have massive agreement on: Women do not preach on Sunday to the church. Doing so is functional egalitarianism. We will not capitulate here," said Kansas City theologian Owen Strachan, a Christian theology professor at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Missouri.

    Josh Buice, pastor of a Southern Baptist church in Georgia, wrote a blog post entitled "Why the SBC Should Say 'No More' to Beth Moore."

    Longtime Southern Baptist watchdog Wade Burleson jumped to Moore's defense, calling out what he saw as "social media bullying" of Moore. "Beth does Christian ministry," Burleson said. "She shouldn't need to defend her ministry to Southern Baptist caucasian males who've fallen into the doctrinal trap of the eternal subordination of women."

    Women's roles have long been a divisive topic for Southern Baptists. On the eve of the Southern Baptist Convention's annual meeting on Tuesday, Founders Ministry, a group dedicated to promoting certain conservative theology, will host a debate titled "Should Women Preach in Our Lord's Day Worship?"

    Last year, the role of women was a hotly debated topic, but it is not supposed to be front and center this year, although the Moore debate could alter that.

    Moore has taught the Bible in front of men for years, but she has recently become an inside critic of evangelicals, expressing shock at how many embrace President Donald Trump; 2016 was a turning point for her, she said recently. Her enormous following on social media gives her a voice far beyond what most Southern Baptist pastors enjoy, and a major theological shift from her could be devastating to its leaders.

    "I am compelled to my bones by the Holy Spirit - I don't want to be, but I am - to draw attention to the sexism & misogyny that is rampant in segments of the SBC, cloaked by piety & bearing the stench of hypocrisy," Moore tweeted last month.

    Moore considers herself a "complementarian," someone who believes men and women have different but complementary roles, including that women should not be pastors. In past conferences, she has told the few men in the crowd that her ministry is intended for women and that she does not wish to have authority over men. Yet, she is among those who believe that Southern Baptists' beliefs can vary on questions such as whether women should teach in front of men, and she recently taught during the Sunday sermon slot at a megachurch in North Carolina.

    Some egalitarians have been eagerly hoping Beth Moore would change her stance on women, a shift that would be enormous in this sphere. Beth Allison Barr, a historian at Baylor University who has written on Moore's influence, analyzed recent tweets from complementarian men about Moore and found that their most used words were related to hierarchy, authority and power.

    "Beth Moore threatened their power hierarchy and they were afraid," Barr wrote in an email. "Losing Beth Moore will be a devastating blow to complementarian leaders, which is why they ganged up on her on Twitter."

    The involvement of prominent leaders in the conversation, particularly Al Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, who believes only men should preach on Sundays, has been noteworthy. Mohler tweeted that the convention had reached a "critical moment" and decried what he saw as an open call for Southern Baptists to retreat from complementarianism.

    Even though the vast majority of Southern Baptists would not invite a woman to preach behind the pulpit, Mohler said he believes the younger generation needs to be reminded of the doctrinal issues at stake. "Complementarianism will become countercultural minute by minute," Mohler said.

    Russell Moore, the president of the SBC's policy arm (and no relation to Beth Moore), called the recent debate over the popular Bible teacher's speaking a "social media dustup," not reflected in churches on Sunday mornings. He and Mohler do not advocate for women preaching in front of men, but they say there is room for disagreement among churches.

    Moore pointed out that many Southern Baptist women have emerged as key voices on the issue of sexual abuse.

    "I am sensing an impressive level of frustration and empowerment from women in local congregations," he said. "Women are saying, 'Women are often not listened to.' But it's not a sense of despair. I see women feeling their voices are increasingly welcome."

    However, some observers are concerned that the controversy over Moore's Mother's Day teaching will overshadow the matter of how Southern Baptists handle abuse and coverups in their churches. Reports from the Houston Chronicle earlier this year found that hundreds of Southern Baptist church leaders and volunteers have faced sexual misconduct allegations in the past two decades. Church leaders called for swift action and are expected to debate specifics in Birmingham.

    Rachel Denhollander, the first woman to publicly accuse USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar of sexual abuse, does not advocate for women to become pastors but perceives an imbalance between the way leaders treat the issue of women's roles and the way they approach sexual abuse.

    "I would like to see pastors preach sermons on sex abuse as frequently as I see them preach on how women should be quiet and submissive," said Denhollander, who will sit on the sexual abuse panel with Moore on Monday.

    Mohler said Southern Baptists could have a clarifying conversation about women's roles in ministry but that this upcoming meeting should prioritize sexual abuse issues. Top-down solutions are limited because the SBC,the largest Protestant denomination in the United States with 14.8 million members, has no pope or hierarchy. One option is to consider "disfellowshipping" - or distancing - churches that mishandle sexual abuse allegations from the broader umbrella, something the convention has done for churches with female pastors.

    Well All Alabama is going to do is create more Jay Maynors with this recent anti-abortion laws and misogyny laws.

    Pardon Jay Maynor for killing a rapist!

    Update: The Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals intervened in the case Thursday, ordering that convicted murderer Jay Maynor's guilty plea must stand because his filing asking to dismiss the plea and have a jury trial was filed too late. Presiding Cullman County Circuit Judge Greg Nicholas followed the higher court's ruling and put aside his order staying Jay Maynor's guilty plea. A previous version of the story is below.

    A Cullman man who pleaded guilty to a murder charge late last year has successfully requested that his case instead be heard at a jury trial.

    Jay Maynor, 43, pleaded guilty on Nov. 14 to murdering 59 year-old Raymond Earl Brooks of Berlin. The alleged victim was a convicted sex offender who had served time after pleading guilty in 2002 to sexually abusing Maynor’s daughter, a minor at the time of the abuse.

    At the time Maynor entered his pleas, Circuit Judge Greg Nicholas sentenced him to two concurrent prison terms: 40 years on the murder plea, and 20 years on the attempted murder plea.

    Two additional charges against Maynor — one for reckless endangerment; the other for shooting into an occupied dwelling — were dismissed as part of the deal.

    Two weeks after he had struck the agreement, Maynor submitted a request to withdraw his guilty pleas, citing ineffectual legal counsel, newly discovered evidence, a lack of understanding of the consequences of his admission of guilt, and being “under extreme pressure and duress” at the time the agreement was made.

    Judge Nicholas issued an order Tuesday granting Maynor’s request, withdrawing his guilty pleas and their associated prison sentences and paving the way for Maynor’s case to proceed to a trial.

    In his order, Judge Nicholas found fault with nearly all of Maynor’s reasons for asking for his pleas to be withdrawn. His decision to allow Maynor to proceed to a trial stemmed not from the persuasiveness of Maynor’s arguments, but rather, said Nicholas, from the Court’s respect for the sanctity of the right to a trial by jury.

    “In this case there is a paucity of evidence to support the withdrawal of Maynor’s guilty plea based on his claim of duress or extreme pressure,” wrote Nicholas. “However, because the right to jury trial is such a sacred and precious thing that forms the very cornerstone of American jurisprudence, any review of a motion to withdraw a plea of guilty that surrenders that right must be carefully examined.”

    Nicholas similarly noted a logical fallacy in Maynor’s argument that he only pleaded guilty to spare his daughter the anguish of testifying at a trial, even as Maynor simultaneously cited as “newly discovered evidence” his own discovery, after pleading guilty, that his daughter would be called to testify in the first place.

    “Either Maynor knew his daughter was going to testify and wanted to spare her from the ordeal or he had no idea that she was going to testify until after he entered his guilty pleas,” wrote Nicholas.

    However, he later concluded, “any substantial doubts ought to be resolved in favor of allowing a jury trial.”

    As a result of the order, Maynor’s case was returned to the active jury docket in Cullman County Circuit Court.

    On Thursday, the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals issued an order stating Maynor's motion to withdraw his guilty plea was filed past the 60-day period following his sentencing. Presiding Judge Mary B. Windom ruled the circuit court lost jurisdiction of the case so Nicholas' order Tuesday staying Maynor's guilty and allowing a trial was void.

    For fucks sake Kambing. Vigilantes don't get rights because it's fucking criminal. How many of these stories have you posted where some asshole killed the wrong person, or that the person killed is only accused of something?

    FUCK! 👿

    Its time for summary executions of priveleged misogynists though and end the "Blame the hero" though.

    David Carlson in one of the threads I did should be pardoned.

    Also Ivan Garcia Oliver to be pardoned for killing a person that raped women. Somehow its OK to blame the hero and demonize them. Their victims deserve to die for their actions. I rather have vigilante killings where priveleged incels and misogynists are killed off as collateral damage in the purge.

    A woman says she was sexually assaulted by a gynecologist who worked for UCLA and is upset the school apparently knew about it from her social media post but never contacted her as it investigated other incidents that led to charges against the doctor.

    UCLA Health discovered the woman’s 2015 Yelp post about a sexual assault by Dr. James Heaps but did not contact her or report the posting to law enforcement, spokeswoman Rhonda Curry confirmed.

    The Los Angeles-area woman, who was a 25-year-old UCLA psychology graduate student and patient of Heaps in 2008, said he grabbed her breast during a post-operative examination.

    She told The Associated Press on Tuesday she was angered but kept seeing Heaps and never reported the incident to authorities.

    In 2015, distraught about favorable ratings for Heaps on Yelp, she posted about her experience and said she felt violated.

    Former UCLA Campus Gynecologist Charged With Sexual Battery, Exploitation

    “If they saw my complaint, they should have reached out,” said the woman, who requested anonymity. The AP typically doesn’t name people who say they are sexual assault victims unless they want to be identified.

    The woman’s complaint is one of four involving Heaps that UCLA now is aware of, Curry said. Only two were referred to police. The school has urged others to come forward if they feel they were mistreated and has hired the company Praesidium to field the complaints.

    Although its investigation began in December 2017, the university did not alert the campus community of the allegations until Heaps was in court Monday. UCLA promised an independent review of its response.

    “We acknowledge that we could have done better,” Curry said. “We are deeply sorry that this happened.”

    UCLA’s scandal comes more than a year after a headline-making scandal at the University of Southern California, where hundreds of women alleged they were sexually abused by the school’s longtime staff gynecologist.

    Tracy Green, Heaps’ attorney, accused the university of rushing to judgment following the USC revelations. She said UCLA never interviewed her client and its statements have been “misleading and defamatory.”

    Green said she did not know of the Yelp posting but said generally that patients might not understand how invasive gynecological exams can be.

    The Medical Board of California showed no records of discipline against Heaps and he has a current license to practice medicine.

    Heaps, 62, pleaded not guilty Monday to sexual battery by fraud against two patients, one in 2017 and another in 2018. He also pleaded not guilty to a count of sexual exploitation of a patient and was released without bail.

    He is accused of unlawfully touching an intimate part of the women while they were unconscious, the complaint states. The charges claim Heaps fraudulently represented the touching as serving a professional purpose.

    UCLA says Heaps was a part-time consulting physician at the school’s student health center from 1983 to 2010. Green said Heaps worked a half-day a month and had a private practice on campus from 1991 to 2014, when he sold it to UCLA Health and became an employee.

    He retired in 2018 when the university told him it would not be renewing his contract.

    Marina Lisetsky, 56, of Granada Hills defended Heaps on Yelp and to the AP. Her daughter was a patient of Heaps before her death in 2015 from breast cancer.

    “I know that’s exactly what she would do to protect Dr. Heaps,” Lisetsky said. “After each appointment, she was very satisfied.”

    James Campbell Quick, a professor at The University of Texas at Arlington who has studied sexual harassment in the workplace, said initial investigations can take time but UCLA’s delay to notify the campus was “crazy.”

    The women in the criminal case weren’t UCLA students but they were seen at Heaps’ office on the campus. He also worked at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, which is where the Los Angeles-area woman saw him.

    He allegedly touched her breast during a 2008 follow-up appointment when she asked what was in internal exam photos, which she said were shown to her friend without her permission.

    Although she continued to see him and no other misconduct occurred, she said she was “always terrified” during the appointments.

    “I wasn’t sure if I should report it and who I should report it to,” she said. “I just felt so vulnerable as a student who was still going through a medical issue.”

    On Tuesday, she called Praesidium.

    “I feel validated,” she said afterward. “It feels like a relief to finally have reported it.”
