Ex-Cop Sentenced To Life For Raping 7-Year-Old Girl Gets His Conviction Overturned Over THIS Stupid Technicality

no title

This is INFURIATING!

Michael Thomassie was sentenced to life in prison in August of 2015 for raping a 7-year-old girl back in 2002… but he's about to get off nearly scot-free.

That's because after only serving a little over a year for the deplorable crime, the 42-year-old former New Orleans police officer just got his conviction overturned by an appeals court on Wednesday for an incredibly enraging technicality.

Even though the victim gave graphic evidence that Michael — who lived with her and her mom at the time — had raped her, a different aspect of the trial altogether is getting the verdict tossed.

Assistant District Attorney Laura Cannizzaro Rodrigue argued to the jury at the time that a text message he sent to his girlfriend telling her he preferred women with shaved pubic hair was indicative of him being "inclined to rape a child."

Thomassie sent the following text to his then-girlfriend regarding her pubic hair situation during the 2015 trial:

This is just unbelievable in every way.

On Thursday, former NFL star Joe McKnight (pictured above) was shot and killed in the New Orleans area by a man named Ronald Gasser over an alleged road rage incident at an intersection.

Gasser was immediately detained and taken into police custody, but at this point remains uncharged as investigators figure out what happened to cause the incident, and McKnight's tragic death.

Now, though, more reporting is coming out about Gasser himself, and there is one disturbing, unbelievable coincidence: nearly eleven years ago, Gasser had a VERY similar road rage incident at THE EXACT SAME INTERSECTION!

According to police, on February 20, 2006, Gasser was driving erratically in a red pickup truck when another driver

Kate Hudson and Gina Rodriguez attend Deepwater Horizon premiere.

The two lovely ladies attended the Deepwater Horizon premiere in New Orleans Monday, both wearing pants and off-shoulder tops.

However, we think Kate pulled off her red Elie Saab jumpsuit better, especially with that beaded jacket thrown over her shoulders. CLASSY!

Gina looked gorgeous, but her pink Safiyaa jumpsuit pants were a little too wide for our tastes. Otherwise, her black Bardot top, Henri Bendel clutch, and sleek updo were total winners!

But which style do YOU like best???

He was truly a beloved soul.

On Thursday, Prince was found unconscious in his elevator, as paramedics were unable to revive him. He was eventually pronounced dead that afternoon.

When news got out, several artists and politicians spoke highly of the Purple Rain artist's legacy, for both his work in music and his humanitarian efforts.

On CNN, political commentator and friend Van Jones spoke about the 57-year-old's life that only his inner circle knew about.

It turns out the legendary musician funded several charities including Yes We Code and Green For All that respectively gave underprivileged youth technical jobs in Silicon Valley, and provided homes with solar panels.

Last year, Prince famously performed in locations such as Chicago, New Orleans, and Baltimore. According to Jones, he did these concerts in order to help local organizations deal with police brutality and social injustice.

As a Jehovah's Witness, the Minnesota-native did not allow himself to speak publicly about his good deeds. However, his actions spoke so much louder than words, and touched so many lives.

He will definitely be missed.
