On campus, the allegations were damning and life-altering. In the jury deliberation room, they were rubbish.
A student expelled by the College of Charleston in 2014 for rape has been vindicated by the criminal justice system, though his life has already been ruined beyond repair.
The Post and Courier reports that a jury took just 28 minutes to acquit Paul Heyward Robinson of sexually assaulting a fellow student who claimed she passed out and woke in the middle of the assault.
Prosecutors are blaming police bungling for the loss, rather than questioning the strength of the evidence:
At Robinson's three-day trial in late November, defense attorneys said the police investigator acknowledged never reviewing a medical exam of the victim or interviewing key witnesses before arresting him.
