If this has already been established then why would there be a need for any further findings to be presented?
I'm obviously not a lawyer but I am an educated person and I thought that it was up to the two people (as far as I know only MH and his daughter were in the room at the time of the alleged attack) who were in the room in this case to determine the facts of what actually happened and that everything else was either testimony based on what each individual had seen or heard after the incident or was merely hearsay.
Like I said, if it has already been determined that MH was drunk and mistakenly climbed into bed with his daughter thinking it was his wife and then proceeded to attempt intercourse with her then all that is left is for a judge to determine what the correct punishment should be, I think.
You have taken what I "postulated" and assumed it was fact. And no one has said anything about intercourse. At this time all that is known is that there was a "touching" in the legal sense of the word, which could mean alot of things.
I only know what everyone else does from the reports Zad has posted and the news items (ok maybe a tad more, but not much). I was trying to respond to someone who said they couldn't fathom any reasonable situation in which this could happen mistakenly (i.e., without criminal intent).
I think it could rather easily have been a mistake, but that may be a professional bent on my part.
I also corrected someone on the "pressing charges" concept.
Bottom line is, if the police believe (interpret) that certain conduct is or could be criminal, even if there is a legitmate reason why it wasn't, they will often arrest, pass their reports to the prosecuting attorneys who will then file the charges and "let the courts sort it out."
The only additional facts we are ever likely to hear will come in at Prelim or at Trial, and some of what is admitted at Prelim will, as a procedural matter, be hearsay!
