"Rape by False Pretenses"

Kent Scheidegger has this post at Crime and Consequences summarizing and commenting on this past week's decision from the California Court of Appeal reversing a defendant's conviction for having sex by pretending to be the partner's boyfriend. In part: "Given the attention this case has received, there is a good chance that even California's generally pro-criminal Legislature will have to fix this statute, as the court has urged it to do."
