Nick Gonzales was accused of rape in Australia, but acquitted due the to ability of his lawyer to highlight the importance of a key fact to the jury. The alleged victim was wearing extremely tight skinny jeans during the time of the alleged assault. The jury asked for additional evidence to show that Gonzalez could have removed the jeans without the help and consent of his alleged victim, but it was not enough. Gonzalez walked free due to the fashion choice of the female accuser, similar to the skinny jeans defense used in Seoul, South Korea where a man had his conviction overturned when the skinny jeans defense was brought into play. In Italy this same type of defense has been used before, but most recently the Italian courts upheld a rape conviction in which the victim was wearing the skin tight jeans. This lack of overlap in legal matters shows that sexual assault charges can be determined based on a single detail, which is why having a cunning criminal defense attorney who can show the jury the importance/insignificance of such details is essential to the outcome.
