How can a rapist have a fair trial if only relevant testimony is evidence

I was absolutely convinced that the jury wasn't going to convict in the historic rape case that took place last year. I was driving along when they announced the verdict on National Radio I pulled over, because I was worried I was going to lose it when they announced that they'd been found not guilty. I was surprised and relieved when they were convicted (and at that stage I didn't even know who the guys with name suppression were).

So now the rapists are appealing; objecting to the fact that they didn't get to call her a slut.

Now is the time for the Appeals Court trademark hostility to defendants.
