Outrageous: Rape Victim Made To Pay

Check out the story here.
Totally apalling. This judge needs to be removed from the bench! You can also go here:

The Washington County District Attorney's Office declined to prosecute the case against the men. Robert Hermann, the county's district attorney, said prosecutors reviewed all the information and statements but didn't think they could prove a rape allegation.
Ted Naemura, the assistant city attorney who prosecuted the case, said the woman's false accusations were serious enough to lead to charges. The young men faced prison sentences of at least 7 years and a lifetime labeled as sex offenders. In addition, police spent considerable resources investigating the accusations.

So basically, a girl gets raped, the DA can't come up with enough evidence to prove it so he prosecutes the victim. Remind me never to move to Beaverton!
