I would love to see a trial transcript where the Judge banned the words "rape" and "victim". I'm guessing he/she felt the words were prejudicial to the defendant, but that is just a guess and not worth the time or effort it took me to write this.

If you find any follow up on this, I would love to be notified. Thank you

I think the judge would be singing another tune if it happened to his/her daughter.
