How helpless she felt how angry angry how all those feelings boiled inside her until she was driven to do something incomprehensible but it was hard to explain anything when the lawyers attacked her every word and branded her aligarh and worse there was john his presence alone meet her trimble and he was seated over at the defense table staring at her shaking his head at her even now after everything. He found underway to make her feel worthless. Lorraina struggled to find the right language but her limited english escaped her. It was too much pressure and she felt she was crumbling underneath it. As llerena answered questions posed by john's attorney she sometimes fell silent for long stretches che's or said that she didn't understand the washington. Post described marinas testimony as halting and sometimes flustered the the prosecution's co-counsel. Mary grace o'brien said i knew from the moment she began answering questions correctly that she was confused and debilitating militating lee nervous in addition to our nerves. Lorena was restricted from telling her entire story virginia law prohibited prosecutors from presenting assenting evidence about a defendant's prior conduct. They could only discuss the crime at hand in the trial under this law. The judge ruled that lorraina could only testify about the five days leading up to the alleged rape on june twenty third. She was not allowed to speak about the years of abuse she had endured during her marriage. She couldn't bring in the numerous eye witnesses who backed her claims nor could she discussed the arrest records showing the john had been charged with assaulting her in the past. I with these limitations in place. Lorena could hardly talk about any part of her life with john except for the morning of the twenty third. She told the jury jury that when john came home after a night of drinking he pushed me and held my hands. I said no twice but john wouldn't stop the prosecution tried to bolster lena's testimony by attacking john's character they brought up his infidelity fidelity presenting the jury with a written list of women he had affairs with lorraina said john created the list himself and showed it to her as a way of taunting her but john denied this. He said he possibly wrote down a list of women. He was interested in but he didn't sleep with them. He claimed he hadn't even slept with anyone else. During his marriage 'til arena though in fact he had an ongoing paternity suit filed against him a twenty one year old woman from johns hometown of niagara new york claimed and blood tests later showed that john was likely father of her ten month old baby. The defense responded with the argument that even if john was a bad husband that didn't make him a rapist but regardless of how the jury view john on the ultimate test was whether they believed lorena john's attorneys tried to point out as many contradictions in her testimony as they could lorena ahead said that her underwear was torn when john raped her but defense attorneys brought an expert witness who testified that he believes the rip had been made by a pair of scissors. The defense also claimed that laura's demeanor on the morning of june twenty third did not fit that of a rape victim they presented the testimony of the emergency he room doctor who examined lorena that day when she came in for the rape kit hours after the attack. The doctor found it unusual that lorena seemed very very calm during the exam because he said quote rape victims normally are hysterical. It's not clear whether the prosecution russian presented evidence to counter the emergency doctors assertion that rape victims are usually hysterical but victims advocates throughout the country have repeatedly emphasized that there is no normal reaction to sexual assault deborah smith a senior knowledge and information services analysts for the national center for state courts published an instructive article on the issue she wrote it is important that judges attorneys law enforcement victim advocates and other professionals understand the neurobiology of traumatic events such as sexual assault so that they can put the behavior of the victims and proper context context on the subject of victim appearing relaxed she wrote interviewers may be surprised by the lack of affect expressed by some victims of assault halt this is caused by the brain releasing opiates during the traumatic event which leads to a numbing effect so that the victim appears overly com rather there're than hysterical while johns defense attorneys argued that lorena was to calm to be a rape victim. They also tried to show that she was too hot headed to be the good wife. They painted her as jealous and vengeful woman. They said that she cut off john's penis because she was unsatisfied with their sex life and and because she did not want any other woman to have him if they got divorced. John did his best to portray himself as the victim of laurynas rage each talking at length about the moment. She cut him prior to that moment. He said they had only had consensual sex. He adamantly denied denied ever raping his wife. The case boil down to one person's word against the others with the jury deciding who was more credible after the two day trial the jury of nine women and three men deliberated for four hours. They came back with a verdict of not guilty t two women held out for several hours before agreeing to acquit john of sexual assault ultimately the other juries felt that there wasn't enough physical evidence to convict one of them said as far as i was concerned the d._a. Had improved anything and the prosecutors later said they thought the jury might have felt that john had suffered enough indeed. John was relieved to be acquitted. He said i'm glad the jury believed me. I just want to get on with my life. I've got a lot of healing to do but whether he was sincere in his desire to you get on with his life is debatable. He didn't seem ready to let llerena go in an interview the week after his trial john revealed that he still you'll carried a picture of lorraina and his wallet and that he was open to reconciliation. He was remarkably blase about the fact that his wife had cut off his penis the previous summer saying he might take lorena back. If she apologized he proclaimed quote. I'm a very forgetful person <music> but however john might have felt about the mutilation the legal system was not prepared to let the matter go lorena was set to face her own trial two months later in january of nineteen ninety four the same prosecutors to adjust relied on lorena as a witness in their case against john now had had to turn their focus to prosecuting her commonwealth attorney. Mary grace o'brien had no regrets about prosecuting john bobbitt she she knew going into the case that it was exceptionally difficult to get a conviction for marital sexual assault but after john's trial she said you can't refuse to prosecute prosecute a case because you think you might lose she approached arenas trial with the same sense of duty saying i have no doubt that she has been physically and sexually abused but we have other options in society and what she did was not right coming up the commonwealth of virginia presents its case against lorena bobbitt now back to the story in november of nineteen ninety three twenty six year old john bobbitt stood trial on the charge of sexually assaulting his wife despite lorena bobbitt orbits testimony that her husband raped her the jury ultimately decided there wasn't enough physical evidence to convict and they found him not guilty after the trial john embarked on a publicity tour hoping to cash in on his new found fame he had hefty medical bills to pay following the surgery entry to reattach his penis and he didn't have any medical insurance johnson t shirts emblazoned with the catchphrase love hurts among other trinkets he went on the air with various radio personalities around the country including shock jock howard stern stern later later hosted a pay per view fundraising telecast in john's honor on new year's eve the show included topless women and a giant penis shaped tracker tila straight the amount of money raised but a bigger circus was on the horizon next came the trial of john's estranged wife lorena scheduled for early nineteen ninety four since the jury had cleared john on the charge of sexual assault prosecutors were hopeful that llerena might plead guilty tea and agreed to a deal to avoid trial but lorena refused she was not yet an american citizen and she worried that her legal status as an immigrant would be jeopardized by pleading guilty to a felony lorena decided to take her chances and go to trial hoping that she it would be found innocent the fact that she had cut off her husband's penis was not in dispute but her lawyers argued that she should be found not guilty by reason up temporary insanity under virginia law her defense attorneys have to shell that lorraina acted on irresistible impulse a rare rare and difficult to argue defense w lawrence fitch a professor of psychiatry and criminal law at the university of virginia law school said said that era sustainable impulse is very hard to prove because it's difficult to show that someone was unable to exercise control the question is is whether she had the capacity to control her behavior but chose not to the lawn virginia requires one to show that practically nothing would have deterred the behavior. The defense also had to prove that the irresistible impulse was caused by some mental disorder in lorraine case they intended to put forth evidence it ends that suggested that lorena possibly suffered from several mental health problems including battered women's syndrome battered women's syndrome is a concept developed philip by psychotherapists lenore walker describes a set of symptoms experienced by women who endured long term domestic abuse walker called it a some type type of post traumatic stress disorder since the late nineteen seventies lawyers have used the diagnosis in the defense of women who kill their abusive spouses. Arena's lawyers hoped they could also use it to help show that lorena wasn't responsible for her actions when she maimed john.
