rich rapist pays off the victim

So Dominique found a way to not go to jail.
"Shamed Dominique Strauss-Kahn has signed a settlement with a
hotel maid who accused him of rape.
The former head of the International Monetary Fund
agreed the deal with Nafissatou Diallo who claimed he forced her to perform oral sex and tried to rape her after she went to clean his room.
Mr Strauss-Kahn insisted the May 2011 encounter was consensual, called the 33-year-old’s suit defamatory and countersued. The 63-year-old’s lawyers last month acknowledged they were in talks about a settlement over the civil case but dismissed reports of a £4million pay-off as ‘flatly false’..."
Three stories re: Dominique Strauss-Kahn: HERE
The big fat political rape hypocrisy HERE


The bottom line is, do we generally believe girls and women when they report that they have been raped?
(of course we do believe without question when the alleged perpetrator is a pastor, priest, rabbi or woman--) (but a testoterone-laden man of entitlement or a rich control freak--whoa nellie. let's not jump to conclusions!)
And, even if we Know
  that they are speaking the truth--more,
that they are displaying courage by coming forward,
 as the consequenses to simply reporting the crime are damaging and significant--
 how are the rights of the accused upheld? Because we abhor the idea that an innocent person is sent to jail, we have safeguards in place in the USA legal system. I want to discuss the intersection of Power, Sexual assault, Media, and Culture.
