Rollins trial, day 7: See Ivan Moore’s column on “consent” in rape cases

Nesbett Courthouse, Alaska Court System

The trial in Case No. 3AN-09-07868CR, State of Alaska v. Rollins, is being heard before Anchorage Superior Court Judge Philip R. Volland in the Nesbett Courthouse at 4th & I in Anchorage. The trial resumes Monday, February 7.

Once again the trial of Anthony Rollins, the former Anchorage Police Department cop accused of serial rape — was livetweeted by Grace Jang of KTVA Channel 11 News, Christine Kim of KTUU Channel 2 News,  and photographer Ken Fankhauser in livetweeting the Anthony Rollins trial.  Once again, I didn’t do much retweeting, so see their Twitter feeds for complete coverage.  Or, follow the links below to media stories on today’s (Thursday, February 3) day in court.

You’ll also want to take a look at Anchorage pollster Ivan Moore’s column which was posted online today at by the Anchorage Press (to appear also in tomorrow’s print version). Moore wrote about “consent” in rape cases — from former Anchorage School District music teacher Satch Carlson (after whom the eponymous “Satch Carlson” law) to  Anthony Rollins.  I still harbor some anger at Moore for his suggestion in 2009 that we should throw transfolk under the bus if we wanted to get an equal rights ordinance in Anchorage (I wrote about the issue here and here), but on the topic of rape, consent, Satch Carlson, & Anthony Rollins — he’s spot on. Thank you, Mr. Moore.

The Rollins trial will resume on Monday, February 7. The state is expected to complete its case that day, at which point the defense will take up its case.  Until then, I’ll try to think up other stuff to tweet about.
