Troll wrote:From The Daily Beast Article:Jonas’s crime was essentially rape in concert—even though he hadn’t had sex with Claire, he admitted that he’d known what Alex was allegedly planning to do to her. According to California law, by keeping Claire’s friend Laura occupied—in part by hiding her phone—Jonas had acted as an accomplice, and was just as responsible.
Jonas was also charged with another rape shortly after being charged with Claire’s.
As it turns out, Jonas’s DNA swab matched yet another victim in a national DNA database ... which ... involved alcohol and a college student.
UPDATE: On Wednesday afternoon, a San Diego jury convicted Alex Smith of two felony counts: rape of an intoxicated person and rape of an unconscious person. He’ll be sentenced on October 20, and faces a maximum of eight years in prison.
Linda set up another security camera in the hallway of the third floor, and pointed it at Alex and Jonas’s apartment.
In court testimony, Detective Nugent described seeing “several” women from Linda’s tapes who appeared “distraught and upset.” Linda couldn’t say how many women she saw leave that way.
The mystery is solved. Alex "Beryl" Smith and Jonas did this shit regularly, and the judge was probably appalled. Jonas got eight years for being an accomplice. No wonder Alex didn't take a plea - he won't get more than eight years.
There is no "rape culture". These guys are unrepentant predators who used alcohol to disable their victims.
They are also dumbasses. The police did not investigate until the victims found the blogs bragging about the rapes. Otherwise, there would not have been enough evidence for a prosecution.
hahaa don't forget, jonas dick showed the blonde girl his identification(since Jonas Dick is a rare name), the blonde remembered and told her friend(who got raped) and she googled him and found their field reports. By that time the district attorney had enough probable cause to send an arrest warrant and enough evidence to prosecute.
but yes, thanks to those field reports, that ultimately incriminated themselves for a conviction.
Keep in mind, this was a cold case until the victim started googling Jonas Dick's name and found the field reports incriminating themselves.
