The Court last week overturned the initial conviction, pointing to an outdated provision in law in ruling that a person who impersonates someone is guilty of rape only if the victim was married and the person pretending to be their spouse.
"Californians are justifiably outraged by this court ruling, and it is important that the Legislature join together to close whatever loopholes may exist in the law and uphold justice for rape victims," Achadjian said.
