My understanding is that Mr Brookman bases his whole critique of this case on the belief that the defendant was found guilty on the sole basis of the victim's word as against his. This is to misunderstand the facts completely.
The jury asked itself how often complete strangers have consensual sexual intercourse minutes after meeting, and decided, unsurprisingly, that this was very rare.
If Mr Brookman's experience is any different, then good for him; but he should be reminded that the law is predominantly concerned with the lives of ordinary mortals. This is why we have a jury system.
