Sometimes SCOV takes an entire paragraph to call out some bad behavior. This is one of those times. Good on you, Chief Reiber. It’s not cool to call someone a slut. Just don’t do that. Don’t.
The thumbnail version of the story is this. Complainant (not Slut, as perhaps the State’s Attorney would prefer she be called) and her boyfriend Jason went out for drinks in downtown Rutland, and then ended up at a party at the home of some friends. Complainant and her boyfriend got into an argument because he was talking to other people at the party. He decided to cool off and walked home, leaving her there.
After he left, she went into a bedroom and made some phone calls, and then fell asleep. Her story is she woke up later to find a man who she did not know, performing oral sex on her. According to her she got up, ran into another bedroom and told the people at the party what happened. Then she got a ride home and her boyfriend took her to the police station and the hospital.
