Memphis lawyer tells rape trial jury women are 'good' at lying

Memphis lawyer tells rape trial jury women are 'good' at lying

The defense team has said the sex was consensual and questioned the woman's credibility, pointing to a background that includes drug smuggling.

While a local women's group called his defense strategy "absolutely despicable", the attorney seemed to be unfazed.

In his closing argument, Farese also commented on what the woman was wearing, saying her top wasn't in evidence because "they" don't want the jury to see it because it was a sexy halter top.

The jury is made up of nine women and three men. According to court documents, she was arrested in 2011 at a Mexican border patrol checkpoint for possessing almost 5 pounds of cocaine and some marijuana.

One person tweeted, "What a despicable thing to say". He said he introduced Giannini and the victim.

The Commercial Appeal reports that Farese shocked a courtroom Thursday by stating in closing arguments that the jury should consider how good people are at lying.

"She's totally unbelievable", Farese said. "People can be very good at lying. Women can be especially good at it, because they are the weaker sex".

On Thursday, Shelby County Assistant District Attorney Jessica Banti told the jury that Giannini, 51, belittled the job applicant, 28, while raping her, and Banti said the millionaire was trying to dehumanize the mother of four, according to The Commercial Appeal.

But Google and Samsung are trying to incentivize users to choose Google Music by offering "special features" for Samsung users. Google Play Music will also work with Samsung's AI assistant - Bixby, which will debut on the Galaxy S8 later this Spring.

The prosecution said Giannini brutally raped the victim and she had to go to the hospital due to her injuries.

When she spoke during the trial, the 28-year-old woman, who had been working as a server at a nearby Waffle House, said that Giannini began forcibly kissing her after he had given her a tour of the house.

"Did you tell her she was going to be choked until she passed out?" a prosecutor asked James.

The trial was expected to last several weeks, but testimony for both sides took three days.
