A Mexican judge have been criticized for freeing a young man from a wealthy family from sexual assault because hr didn’t enjoy it.
Diego Cruz Alonso, 21, was a member of an exclusive gang called ‘Los Porkys’ who were the sons of local businessmen and prominent members of society in the city of Veracruz.
They were accused of raping a schoolgirl after she left a party in the early hours of 3 January 2015.
But, according to reports from The Guardian, Judge Anuar González decided that although Cruz had touched the victim’s breasts and penetrated her with his fingers he had acted without ‘carnal intent’ and was therefore not guilty under Mexican law.
Estefanía Vela Barba, a women’s rights activist, was outraged by the judge’s ruling and told The Guardian: ‘He sexually touched her, but because he didn’t enjoy it, (so) it’s not sexual abuse?’
