The crime news is hotter than the temperature these days and rumors are flying like kites in the breeze, so on the show this week, I talk with my favorite defense attorney David McGruder about the so-called “Cop Rape Case” involving two police officers who were acquitted of raping a young fashion executive DESPITE being convicted of offenses that resulted in ruining their police career and being kicked off the police force. This acquittal makes no sense AT ALL so David breaks it down for me!
The US Senate Special Committee on Aging recently held hearings on elder abuse. A 90-year old man testified that his step-son withheld food and medicine from him and his wife, verbally abused them and terrorized them so severely that they were virtually prisoners in their own home. Shockingly, the man testifying was well known actor Mickey Rooney and experts estimate that millions of elder Americans are victims of abuse and neglect every year–many, many, many of them mentally impaired and unable to speak up for themselves.
