Penn State Rape Case, Take 3: All Charges Dropped Against Austin Scott
I've written twice before (here and here) about Penn State running back Austin Scott, who is charged with raping a 22 year-old fellow student. In fact, just yesterday I wrote about the judge's decision to allow the alleged victim to be questioned about a prior false rape accusation, a decision I characterized as incorrect under rape shield law precedent. Well, as a result of that ruling, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania withdrew all charges against Scott, with a press release indicating: "In light of the likely admission of evidence we believe is irrelevant, as officers of the court, it is our position that there is no reasonable likelihood the commonwealth can meet its burden of proof."
