Does anyone have info on why rape charges weren’t brought against LSUs javelin thrower?
LINK

It seems inexcusable the grand jury didn’t bring charges, so I’m assuming there is something missing? How the hell would this case not be heard


quote:

Tzuriel Pedigo, 18, graduated from Parkview Baptist last month. He was arrested last July and booked on two counts of first-degree rape.



quote:

The two discussed the incidents the following week at school via text message and face to face, which she recorded, according to the report. In the messages and recording, Pedigo admitted to the assault and said "I feel ashamed of what I've done" and "every time I think of what I done, I'm reminded that I'm a monster, or at least I feel like one."
and this whammy

quote:

Pedigo also told her in the recording that he heard her telling him to stop, but he couldn't control himself because he was too drunk, according to the report.


oh and this

quote:

She and other party attendees told investigators Pedigo appeared extremely intoxicated. The party-goers also told deputies they saw her crying at the party and Pedigo apologized profusely and said "I didn't mean to do it!"

I mean when you have a recording of someone admitting rape, and witnesses there that very night also saying they heard him apologizing for it, I just don’t know how else a case isn’t even heard

Yeh but with the recording of him admitting it, I don’t think the prosecution would need her to cooperate

I don’t either

I was under the impression in rape cases sometimes they don’t go forward because the prosecution has no case without the victims cooperation

In this case, it seemed slam dunk even without her

It sucks when truths and common sense get all muddled up by legalities.

I'm no criminal lawyer but if the victim doesn't cooperate, how is the grand jury going to hear the recording. We she have to testify that the recording of her and the guy before the prosecution could even play it for the grand jury. Kind of happy I don't know how these criminal things worK!

The recording might be inadmissible at trial without the victim to authenticate it, but I'm not sure. But I think for grandy jury the rules are pretty lax, and they can review evidence that might not be admitted at trial.

But I know the law 100% does not require a victim to cooperate or "press charges". The grand jury decides whether to offer a "true bill" (i.e. formal indictment). I guess in practice a DA will opt not to file charges without the victim willing to testify, but again, this is a grand jury. So who knows.

Because somehow I never heard of it. I don’t exactly keep up with track and fielld
Googled his name today after he won the national title and saw this, and honestly made my stomach turn knowing he competes for LSU

I want someone to tell me a reason as to why this is somehow all a misunderstanding, but shite that’s some damnign evidence

So you would have congratulated him instead had your Google search not led to your outrage? Good thing he was the first LSU winner in the event since 1967 or you’d have never even known about this.

sounds like the same investigators that looked at Hunter's laptop and could find anything incriminating on it.
