In the Melissa Bittner case, her lawyers insisted that she plead guilty even though I’m sure they believed her claims in full or largely that her alleged “victim” was the aggressor and assailant and that she didn’t consent to a single act of “sexual contact” much less willingly masturbate him. They foolishly assured her that lying and pleading “guilty” or “no contest” would enable them to convince the DA to charge her with a misdemeanor; and, consequently, to recommend a sentence of probation with no time in prison or even jail to which a judge would defer and thus impose.
But what if she had rejected their advise and pled not guilty and went to trial in Michigan in 2014, as did Abigail Simon. Even though she was/is clearly innocent to any minimally honest, realistic, objective, rational, intelligent person, i.e, to anyone not perverted by CSA victimology propaganda, inculcation, and hysteria, she probably would have been found “guilty” of at least a few of the 15-20 “counts” of “sexual contact,” “first-degree criminal sexual conduct” under Michigan Law, by a jury so perverted, and sentenced to at least 8-25 years in prison and a lifetime of sex-offender registration and electronic parole monitoring with a conspicuous and cumbersome ankle-tether or “bracelet.” Even if she was found “guilty” of only one “count” of “first-degree criminal sexual conduct” and “not guilty” of initiating or consenting to all the other acts of “humping” and one act of masturbation, the judge would have had no choice but to impose the mandatory-minimum sentence of 8-25 years in prison and a lifetime of draconian/Orwellian persecution. He would have had no discretion to impose a sane and just and rational sentence of 3-6 months of probation and perhaps 50-100 hours of community service.
