Default Defence lawyer asks sex assault complainant why she didn't clench her legs together

A defence lawyer who asked a young woman why she didn't clench her legs together to prevent her father pulling down her pants and having sex with her has been admonished by a Calgary judge, who dismissed a mistrial application Tuesday afternoon.

"You would agree with me then all you had to do was clench your legs together and your pants would have been unable to move," said defence lawyer Krysia Przepiorka in her cross-examination of the young woman late Monday afternoon.

Where do these people come from that still hold these outrageous, outdated ideas that knees prevent sexual assault?
