It appears to me that the Manhattan DA has some problem prosecuting sex crimes. Earlier in the year they lost the prosecution of the policemen who used a woman too drunk to walk (but able to consent?). Now, we get prosecutors dancing about in a fit over issues that are peripheral to the case. Victim's dealings with immigration are not relevant to whether she was raped. I don't see why that sort of thing would get in at trial. I am having difficulty seeing what it was even a topic of conversation between the prosecutors and the victim. There is physical evidence. There is plenty for a prosecution. But, prosecutors seem to have a hard time when the defense has resources to match. It all reflects very poorly on the Manhattan DA and his underlings. They have a pretty poor attitude and the treatment of the victim reeks of pique, not professionalism.
