One day after he was shot in a robbery, rapper Tupac Shakur was convicted Thursday of sexually abusing a woman he had invited to his hotel room and acquitted of sodomy and weapons charges. Shakur, 23, who was shot five times Wednesday, was not in court when the verdict was read. He had appeared earlier Thursday in a wheelchair with a heavy white bandage on his head.

Fifteen men were indicted Monday on riot, assault, sexual abuse, robbery and other charges stemming from daylight attacks in New York's Central Park in which more than 50 women were doused with water and sexually abused by roaming gangs of men. The early-evening attacks, many of which were videotaped by people who were in the park, occurred after the June 11 Puerto Rican Day parade. Some alleged victims said they were stripped of their clothes and groped by the men.

Not long ago, there was, as far as the New York Police Department was concerned, no such thing as rape in New York City. That, anyway, is how Detective Ellen King of the NYPD remembers it. "It was either a girl trying to get even with her boyfriend, or it was a girl covering her tracks, trying to keep her parents from finding out she was sexually active," King says.
