Outrage in Spain over verdict in gang sex attack on teen

AFP, Madrid

Women’s groups and legal experts demanded yesterday that Spain’s laws be changed after five men accused of gang-raping an unconscious 14-year-old girl were convicted on a lesser charge of sexual abuse.

A Barcelona court on Thursday ruled out the more serious charge of sexual assault—the legal equivalent of rape in Spain—on the grounds that the victim was in an “unconscious state” from drugs and alcohol and the accused had not used “any type of violence or intimidation” in the attack.
