Sexual Assault, Consent, Bill Cosby & Statute of Limitations with Leonard Levine + Mike Cavalluzzi

vor 4 Jahren

Sexual assault, the sex offenders registry, and the blurry lines of rape and consent are discussed with attorneys Leonard Levine and Mike Cavalluzzi. We look at the Bill Cosby allegations of rape, and the possibility of him facing trial and the difficulty of defending yourself years after a crime allegedly took place. We also explore sexual assault on college campuses, difficulty in labelling teenagers rapists, and how the press stir the pot in this uncensored Crime Time episode, hosted by Allison Hope Weiner.
