Was this report from the victims statements or was this from anyone in the home where this took place, to explain what started the situation. Was the older person that was supposedly assaulted asked what her reason was for coming to the accused home in the first place. The reason that there is nothing mentioned about what started the situation is apparently the policeman didn't listen to the owner of the ressidance. Also, was the older women checked to see if she was drinking, like the owners of the ressidence ask them to do. That answer would be no, I know for a fact that she come to the ressidence for a bar. There were marks on both women because there was a struggle. Look at the photo of the accused. Looks beat up to me. Innocent until proven guilty. Right?
