Back in 2012 a woman drove drunk down I-70 and ended up killing another driver. This is a sad, yet not uncommon story.

What makes this story different is the driver was raped.

Key points in the case:

  • The trooper that collected her blood had it 59 hours without refrigeration.
  • There was more than enough time for the drug to leave her system.
  • The judge in her case ruled to suppress evidence that she might have been given a drug.
  • Rape kit showed evidence of forcible rape
  • Originally judge hadn't allowed topic of rape to even come up during trial.

Here is a link to the original article. It is sad and depressing and I have no idea if she will get off or not.

Don't worry, a number of people are already claiming she is crying rape so she can get out of this.
