Woman Identifies Attacker on TV and Obtains Judgment

"A rape victim who spotted her attacker on the television show "Blind Date" got a $20 million (€15.6 million) civil court judgment, although she will likely never see a dime from her imprisoned attacker. . . . The Ventura mother of a now-12-year-old girl later told police she recognized her attacker on TV and videotaped the "Blind Date" appearance and turned it over to detectives. Her attacker had been sought since Sept. 6, 2003.In a civil suit claiming emotional distress, among other things, Superior Court Judge Vincent O'Neill this month awarded her $20 million (€15.6 million) in damages."
