    She was drinking and he was drinking and they both went back to her house?

    This is a case of he said/she said. Sweet girl, if you didn’t want to have problems, you shouldn’t have invited him in following a night on the town.

    Yes, “no means no”, but you simply had to have said “yes” 100 times before that.

    We won’t see this charge again.
