All tag results for rape charges
Last week, we learned that Mexican singer Kalimba, who faced charges of raping a 17-year-old girl, was released when there wasn't enough evidence to convict him.
We were NOT 100% convinced that he was innocent, and it looks like we weren't the only ones who were skeptical, because now prosecutor Francisco Alor has appealed the judge's decision to dismiss Kalimba's rape charges.
Apparently, Alor is not optimistic that the appeal will work, but he's giving it a try anyway "based on the overriding interests of the minor, international treaties on protecting minors and in view of the opinions of the human rights commission."
The National Human Rights Commission, which Alor mentions above, has launched an investigation to see if the case was handled correctly.
We're glad to hear some wheels are continuing to move with this case.
If Kalimba is innocent, then he certainly should be able to walk free, but if he is in fact guilty, then we hope justice will inevitably be served.
