From The Daily Mail, A Swedish man has been cleared of attempted rape on a transsexual - because he had intended to rape a woman.
Örebro district court ruled that as it turned out that she was a he, the charge is invalid as the intended crime could not be committed.
The man brutally assaulted her, forced her to the ground and kicked her in the face before ripping off her trousers and removing her underwear, attempting to rape her.
The woman’s ex-boyfriend witnessed the attack from his flat and ran downstairs and fought off the attacker with a shoehorn and detained him until the police arrived.
He was arrested at the scene and charged with attempted rape.
A couple of years ago former San Antonio, Texas police officer Craig Nash was charged with rape of a transwoman and was given a slap on the wrist.
Although prosecutor Trey Banack stated that a "police officer who is a criminal does not deserve mercy from the system he protects," it was his office that negotiated a extremely merciful plea agreement with Nash, wherein the corrupt cop agreed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of official oppression and the prosecutor agreed to not pursue a felony charge.
