Case Type: Felony Rape
“The US~Observer fought and won my freedom, and cost the District Attorney and Prosecutor their jobs!”
Frightened and confused, Kevin Driscoll pulled his car over as the sirens blared behind him. Struggling to understand what was going on, Kevin was informed that he was being taken to the police station for questioning over a rape allegation.
Kevin was given two choices; cooperate and he wouldn’t be arrested, or don’t, and he would be arrested. Shocked and in disbelief, Kevin, who had no criminal record, didn’t hesitate to cooperate fully, yet he was still arrested and locked-up.
On January 23, 2009, Kevin Driscoll was charged with 3 counts of rape, one count of unlawful sexual penetration, one count of sodomy and one count of assault IV.
Mainstream media reports based on no factual evidence whatsoever, provided by detectives and prosecutors, nearly cost Mr. Driscoll his life. Potential jurors were only hearing what the State wanted, and local reporters didn’t seek or report the full story.
The US~Observer investigated Driscoll’s case and found, in our opinion, that his accuser had falsely accused him of these crimes. Witness statements, security video and other evidence clearly showed that his accuser was legally married at the time she had consensual intimate relations with Mr. Driscoll. The accuser was also dating another man, while still married, and was essentially cheating on her husband, and her boyfriend, with Mr. Driscoll, who had no knowledge of her other partners.
His accuser was caught cheating by her boyfriend the day after having relations with Mr. Driscoll. Instead of taking responsibility, she lied, and accused Mr. Driscoll of the unthinkable – rape.
The US~Observer shared evidence with the elected District Attorney, prompting him to force his prosecutor to dismiss the charges against Mr. Driscoll. Instead, the D.A. stated that “truth was different from fact”, and forced Mr. Driscoll to trial.
The evidence was overwhelmingly in Mr. Driscoll’s favor – leading to a full acquittal. On Oct. 6, 2010, 11 of the 12 jurors hugged Mr. Driscoll after acquitting him. A few offered to buy him lunch. The one juror who voted guilty was retired law enforcement.
Our last publication urged the voters to replace the elected D.A. who had been in office since Ronald Reagan was President. We also recommended that the Prosecutor be fired. Both were accomplished – the D.A. lost by a landslide in the primary, and the new D.A. fired the prosecutor immediately after being sworn in as the new D.A.
