Justice in Rape Trials

August 05, 2004

The unintended consequence of your editorial on the endless fine points of rape ("Rape and Rights," Aug. 1) will discourage most women from filing rape charges. Instead they will seek solace and redemption in therapy well away from an open-ended court case. Alleged rapists are entitled to a speedy trial, and the state should always give it to them. All rape trials should begin within 60 days. Justice delayed is justice denied.
