Defense maintains Woodland’s innocence through end of trial

Date Posted: 2002-02-28

The final public hearing in the case of a U.S. airman accused of raping a local woman in Mihama last June was held on Feb. 21 at Naha District Court. Attorneys for Timothy Woodland claimed that consensual sex had taken place and that, as a result, the accused is innocent of all charges brought against him. The defense enumerated several actions taken by the victim that indicated consent, such as agreeing to accompany the defendant to Kadena Air Base, failing to reject the defendant’s advances and getting into his car of her own volition. They also asserted that she had called the police in order to avoid losing face with her peers, who believed a rape had occurred, and to avoid being thought of as an “easy woman.”
