There really ought to be a law


So this week a couple of guys from St. FX were found not guilty of sexual assault. The judge found that the three-way they had with an unnamed woman was by all accounts consensual (seems there were partygoers and others wandering into the bedroom from time to time who became witnesses). My Bitch is why does the law allow these guys' names and their "perp walk" photos to be published the moment they are simply accused. I notice that the female complainant still has her name and photo hidden, even after she loses the case. That system is reasonable for the woman, but hey, even if innocent the guys will have this hanging over them forever. Any reason they can't put a lid on the entire case until it is decided? WTF.
