Attorney for Rockville HS gang rape suspect says incident was "not a rape in any sense"

Henry Sanchez
Promises defense will
put 14-year-old victim's
"character into play"

A lawyer with the law firm representing one of the two alleged assailants in the gang rape of a 14-year-old girl at Rockville High School last week outlined the defense his team will pursue last night on Fox News. His client, 18-year-old Henry Sanchez, is an illegal immigrant who was enrolled as a "freshman" at the school.

Graphic details in the police report suggest a violent, bloody scene, with the victim screaming for help as she was allegedly assaulted, raped and sodomized by Sanchez and Jose Montano, 17. But according to Sanchez's defense attorney, David Moyse, "This was a consensual encounter, not a rape in any sense."

Appearing on Tucker Carlson Tonight last night, Moyse asserted that there is no evidence to suggest the incident was "in any way illegal." Despite being an attorney, Moyse was apparently unaware that any sexual encounter between an adult and a 14-year-old is, in fact, illegal. Even if all parties claim it was consensual, it is still statutory rape.

Moyse hinted that his team will potentially trash the victim in court. "I'm sure there could be a number of questions asked about all three of the people involved," he told Carlson. Moyse said the defense will put her "character into play."

Some have questioned how Sanchez can afford a respected defense team to represent him, while Montano has only a public defender. Pressed by Carlson on who is paying for the firm's services, Moyse declined to answer.

Actually, you're the one who is wrong, Dyer. Maryland has a graduated age of consent. It is legal for those who are 18 years old or younger to have sex with those who are 14 or older.

7:35: Good to know our legislators in Annapolis are protecting the creeps in our state. Good luck winning this case on the Mike "Mullet" Miller creeper exception, which doesn't apply to gang rape. #ThrowTheBumsOut

The "close in age" exemptions require no more than 4 year difference in age for consent.

A 14 year old can consent if the other person is up to 18 years old:

This is done for a good reason -- if a 14 year old and 16 year old are dating, the goal isn't to lock up the 16 year old for statutory rape and put them on the sex offender list. It's more of an issue with an older person trying to take advantage of a younger person. The state felt a 4-year gap was the maximum allowable, and I think that's reasonable too, since the line has to be drawn somewhere.

A defense attorney's job is to represent their client in the criminal courts system, Their client, who is considered innocent until proven guilty. Full stop.

7:55 - that's absolutely correct as horrific as some of the facts are in this case.

Just admit you were wrong, Dyer. Once. In your life.

But seriously, I expected you to be familiar with every nook and cranny of our local age of consent laws.

Robert Dyer said...

8:02: I already admitted I didn't know that. But I suspect public opinion is more in line with mine on the matter than with "Mikey Haircut" Miller's Jerry Lee Lewis aspirations. Just when you thought these crooks couldn't get any creepier...

Dyer has posted four pix of Dirty Sanchez here in just two days. I think he has a crush going on.

Dyer, you are the last person who should be criticizing anyone's fashion choices.

Luckily our courts follow laws, not the court of public opinion.

7:42 AM Nice way to dodge the fact that you were WRONG and took the Spicer exit. Losers of a feather flock together.

Looks like a non-Hispanic US citizen entered the room of a sleeping teen in Silver Spring, and strangled him. Any report on this?

Amazing that, in 2017, we're going to watch a rape victim be personally attacked for coming forward and reporting an assault.

Amazing how "Roald", like Dyer and his other sockpuppets and shills, manages to infer something that no one here actually said.

Yes it's terrible that this 14 year old girl who was raped is now being made out to be the criminal.Orwellian.

Raping and abusing women is par for the course in Gautamala.Daily occurance in that Country.

Superintendent Smith has already intimated that maybe she brought this on herself. Check out his comments at the rockville high meeting.
Smith apparently believes in "legitimate rape".
Hope he is ousted soon.

I told you Dyer would get sodomy in his next article. Surprised he left out gang rape this time. He cares so much about the crime of rape that he's going to volunteer at a local battered women's shelter.

Guess what, 3:50. In the United States, a woman is raped EVERY SINGLE MINUTE.

Idiot.

Dr.Smith should resign.

4:22: Clown move, idiot. I've been an advocate for victims of domestic violence for more than a decade, and once organized a fundraising drive for a local battered women's shelter.

When was the fundraising drive?
What have you done for them lately?
How have you been an advocate?

"Roald" @2:21

I'm appalled that you would not only post something so inaccurate, but try to influence the conversation to go in that direction.

Shame.

I'm even more appalled by the innuendo posted at 4:07, completely lacking in any direct quotes from Hill.
