The complainant had told police that she was sleeping when the defendant attempted to have sex with her. The testimony, however, showed that their relationship involved consensual sex for 2 years and that she had motive for ending the relationship.
Wyatt pointed out several important inconsistencies between her story to the jury and the story she told police. “When a jury believes the witness is lying, it doesn’t take long for them to decide a person has been victimized by her, not the other way around,” Wyatt pointed out.
