1. Virtually no evidence of struggleI would add some others that occur in child molestation accusations:
2. The attacker is invited to the victim’s house OR the victim willingly went to the attacker’s house
3. Authorities are alerted days, weeks, or even months after the rape
Lack of objective evidenceAll of these were present with Jerry Sandusky.
Complaints only made years later
Inconsistencies explained by recovered memories
Complainers suing for big bucks
An implausible conspiracy covered up the crime
One of the creepier things about the Sandusky case was how people like Bob Costas could somehow do his own psycho-analysis and decide that he had the mind of a child molester. How would Costas know that, unless he were a child molester himself? Now every time I look at Costas on TV, I think that he is a pervert.
