The Stanford Rape Case – TFF Special Edition

On this special edition of The Fiamengo File, Professor Fiamengo discusses the injustice of holding male students to a higher standard than female students. Fiamengo argues that Turner was also drunk and it cannot be determined whether the victim in this case blacked out before or after giving consent. This is especially important given that the victim claims not to remember the incident, and more importantly, the standard for criminal conviction is supposed to be “beyond any reasonable doubt.” Fiamengo argues that the jury, in fact, used the condition of “preponderance of evidence” due to decades of feminist insistence on believing the “victim.”
