      throw the case out the court room door, for good. the lady had her chance to properly Id her perp… she lost that chance, you can”t get a re do on that one!!!. .mistaken Identity is serious stuff!!! people in prison to this day from the exact same thing!!!!

        I agree. 100%. Kinda fishy that AFTER they took a recces, her memory was magically restored. Or.. if her lawyer whispered in her ear “OOPS!” Wrong person.. I’m amazed.

    Do you think she had the presence of mind to memorize the looks of his face while being raped? There may be other evidence. But if not I agree he walks,

    Where’s the DNA?

    My guess here is that unless there is additional evidence, such as DNA or another witness, confession to a friend, etc. it will be hard to get a conviction. As to the mistaken identity, being raped has to be extremely traumatic, and relying solely on a victim’s ability to identify the attacker under those circumstances has to be dicy at best. Hopefully in the end, justice will be served.

    is there any dna?

    I would have paid money to see the look on the court interpreter’s face when this woman pointed him out as the person who raped her.

    Deport him and be done with it.
