Hey, I’m more than happy to buy into a story about how one of those supposedly more enlightened/socially conscious Western European countries isn’t really all it’s cracked up to be.

With that said, this reads more like something intended to get clicks (through outrage) than to go into the nitty-gritty details of the case, with a faithful representation of all the key facts. While I am willing to believe that the defense attorney brought out the thing as described and that it was unacceptable to do so under any circumstances, I stop short of accepting that the case (and the question of consent) must surely have hinged on the thong.
