In a case from 2007 that’s only recently getting some attention, an Irvine, California policeman was found not guilty of ejaculating on a stripper he had pulled over, not because he didn’t ejaculate on her, but because the jury found “she got what she wanted.”
The facts going into court were fairly clear: policeman David Alex Park admitted getting out his manhood and spilling his beans so to speak over the stripper following a traffic stop, the stripper made the original complaint, and DNA evidence in the car proved Park has indeed sprayed the stripper and the car.
Park’s lawyer claimed in his defense that she made the married patrolman make the mess, according to a local report, because “after all, she was on her way home from work as a dancer at Captain Cream Cabaret.”
“She got what she wanted,” the lawyer claimed. “She’s an overtly sexual person.”
A jury of elderly white people agreed, and dismissed three felony charges that he’d used his badge to win sexual favors during the December 2004 traffic stop.
The local police department though was wise enough to realize that justice may not have been fully served: they paid the stripper $400,000 in compensation rather that have to face a civil case over the incident.
