Dr. William Anderson writes about a man being Nifonged in Narragansett. The ATTORNEY GENERAL of Rhode Island, Patrick C. Lynch, pulling manipulative prosecutor’s tricks out of his hat, has brought a ham sandwich indictment against a man because a woman alleges that he raped her 32 years ago when they were teenagers. Get this, the basis of her accusation is “recovered memories”. In other words, she walked around for 32 years “not realizing” that she was raped–much less by this poor man.
The mendacious AG circumvented having to show the evidence by obtaining an indictment before bringing charges–so that this nutjob accuser didn’t have to give testimony about it during a preliminary examination. Moreover, the indictment doesn’t specify when this supposed rape took place–denying the accused an opportunity to be fully apprised of the charges. As William Anderson says:
Second, these “recovered memories” are selective. No doubt, she is forthcoming in all sorts of details about this “rape,” but cannot remember when it was, whether it was in the spring, summer, or fall, a seven-month time frame. Granted, the prosecutor has done that so that Mr. Allen cannot possibly line up an alibi defense, since if he says he was out of town on Day X, then the prosecution then will claim that the rape happened on Day Y, and when he finds evidence for what he did on Day Y, then the timeline will be moved to Day Z, and so on.
Hopefully, Bill Anderson will stay on this case. If ever a prosecutor needed to be watched–it’s this one.
