Corey Antwone Hill was acquitted of kidnapping and raping a 26 year old woman in downtown Pensacola in the early hours of August 6th 2018. News coverage by WEAR and WKRG. The victim was incapacitated - There needs to be a legal charge that specifies a specific definition of legally intoxicated applied to sexual assault cases, just as there is for operating a motor vehicle and several other situations. Video surveillance footage shows the victim incapacitated on Palafox Street as well as Hill stalking her and kidnapping her - him running with and carrying the victim's limp body to his car. If the legal definition of intoxicated applied to sexual assault cases, then there would have been no question or legal doubt that the victim was too intoxicated to give legal consent.
The essential aim of Ashley's Law is to have a legal definition to decipher between rape and "regret."
There is research being conducted on this matter. Creating a legal definition of "inability to consent," will help keep the true sexual predators off the streets. Ashley's Law will also contain legal safeguards to false rape reports, such as BAC must be taken along with a full rape kit. A victim's blood alcohol content must be taken as a beginning step in a sexual assault exam/rape kit. Then how intoxicated a victim was during the attack can be approximately calculated. How quickly alcohol is filtered out of the blood is a general formula that can be used to assess a victim's level of intoxication. Ashley's Law aims to establish a legal limit to establish consent.
This is NOT to say anyone can claim rape from having drunk sex. Research is in its infancy, but there will be stipulations saying BAC has to be taken as a part of a sexual assault kit - which no one would do because they are lying. Rape kits are extremely invasive and embarrassing. Again research has just begun.
In downtown Pensacola on Wednesday May 1st from 4-6pm a march will be held to show support for victims of sexual assault. Details to come.
