Judge clears wealthy man of sexual assault because he didn’t ‘enjoy it’
The four men – all from prominent families – were dubbed “Los Porkys” on social media after they were accused of kidnapping a classmate after a party at their private school in Veracruz, Mexico and then sexually assaulting her on Jan. 1, 2015.
The ruling for one of those men, 21-year-old Diego Cruz, was made public Monday. Judge Anuar González cleared Cruz of sexually assaulting the then 17-year-old girl, not because he hadn’t done what he was accused of, which was touching her breasts and inserting his fingers in her vagina, but because he had done so without “carnal intent,” according to the Guardian.
Cruz “made a touch on the aggrieved minor, and at the same time did not intend to reach the vaginal, anal intercourse, nor oral ... it is possible to consider that there was no purpose to copulate,” the judge wrote in his decision, according to Presencia, a newspaper in Veracruz.
The judge said “rubbing” would not be considered a sexual act if it is not meant for “satisfying a sexual desire,” according to Presencia.
