And why did she say he forced himself on her three times, twice in her apartment, and once in her car, apparently. (Once again, no concrete details, no specificity much less thoroughness, not in the news or in any article. And I haven’t read the trial transcript, and almost surely will never do so or talk to or correspond with anyone who attended the trial.) If she was and is lying, why didn’t she say he raped her once? Or twice, first in her apartment, and then in her car, which would have made her story more plausible. I assume there was and is no evidence (DNA, semen, witnesses, texts and emails) confirming beyond a doubt that they had sex on these three occasions. If there was such evidence, conclusive and incontrovertible, that would explain why she claimed he forced himself on her three times. But if not, why would she claim he raped her three times rather than once or twice?

And if there was evidence, definitive and irrefutable, that they had sex 6 or 7 or 8 times, she would have to claim that he raped her 6 or 7 or 8 times. And to have so told the police and prosecutors and testified at trial and preliminary hearings. If so, she would have had no choice but to have plead guilty.

And does she strike one as the kind of woman who’d fall “madly in love” with a 6’3″, 220 lb. “jock” and football star, whether 15 or 20 or 25?
