Le Texas autorise à tuer une escort girl qui refuse un rapport sexuel

Mercredi, un Texan a été acquitté du meurtre d'une escort girl qui s'était refusée à lui. Pour sa défense, l'accusé s'est appuyé sur une loi texane controversée.


Les faits remontent au soir de Noël 2009. Ezekiel Gilbert, 30 ans, sollicite les services de Lenora Evie Frago, une escort girl de 23 ans rencontrée sur un site de petites annonces. Vingt minutes après son arrivée, la jeune femme souhaite quitter les lieux pour donner les 150 dollars à son chauffeur (lisez son proxénète) sans même qu'il y ait eu relation sexuelle. Craignant de voir l'argent s'envoler et s'estimant grugé, Ezekiel lui a tiré dessus.

Paralysée, elle décèdera quelques mois plus tard. Jugé pour meurtre, Ezekiel a finalement été acquitté mercredi par le tribunal du Comté de Bexar, relatent les médias américains, repris par Slate. Pour convaincre les jurés, les avocats de la défense ont évoqué une loi du code pénal du Texas qui autorise "d'utiliser la force létale pour récupérer sa propriété d'un vol de nuit".

Le jury a considéré que le recours à la force était justifié pour récupérer les 150 dollars empochés sans contre-partie. En dépit du plaidoyer des procureurs pour qui la loi n'est pas conçue pour permettre à quelqu'un de forcer une autre personne à pratiquer un acte illégal comme la prostitution, le jury a relaxé le prévenu qui risquait la prison à vie.

Segway Verona offers tours that make sure you will enjoy a fun and immerse experience of our beloved city. We combine Segway, our innovative way of transportation, with tours in the historical city centre. Through our explorations of 1 or 2 hours, we will bring you to the most breathtaking spots, so that, if you do not stay long in Verona, we make sure that you see all of the unmissable sights!

Segway is really easy to use! It is so intuitive that it feels like an extension of the human body. To understand why, consider this: if you stand up and lean forward, so that you are out of balance, you will intuitively put your leg forward. Segway works the same way: to move forward or backward, the rider just leans slightly in such direction, and Segway will follow your movements. It is also easy to turn right or left, since the rider just has to push respectively Segway’s handlebar.

Segway is safe. Anyone over the age of 12 can join our tours, except for pregnant women. Apart from these cathegories, we encorage people of every age to try Segway, because this self-balancing object can really make your experience in Verona much more delightful! In fact, if it is hot, you will enjoy some fresh air and avoid to sweat; if it is cold, you will have the possibility of staying outside the least possible time. It is proved that our 2 hours tours show you what you will see in 6 hours walking!

All the tours start with a little training on how to use Segway, because for us safety is the priority. However, we experienced that it takes just a little practice to master on Segway! There are no required skills and, in particular, no need to be able to bicycle. There will always be a tour leader with you, guiding the whole group, so that you can enjoy the view and the tour of Verona. Audioguides (available in different languages) will provide the information you need to fully comprehend the history and architecture of our main monuments, squares and buildings.

In particular, our 2 hours tour will show you: Piazza Bra, one of the biggest squares in Italy, with the Arena, the famous Roman amphitheatre; we will then take Via Oberdan in order to see Portoni Borsari, one of the ancient entrance of the Roman city; we will firstly explore Piazza Erbe and secondly Piazza Dei Signori, two squares full of symbols and buildings with enchanting beauty, and then see Arche Scaligere. Heading to the Duomo, Verona’s Cathedral, we will pass by Santa Anastasia, next to the Conservatory of music; after that, we will have a break on Ponte Pietra, the bridge with the breathtaking view of the Roman Theatre and San Pietro Castle (and much more). On our way back, we will stop at Juliet’s house, so that you don’t forget to take pictures and write your names on the walls! We will conclude our tour with Castelvecchio, the Scaligeri castle and enjoy its amazing view of Verona.

Moreover, we try to adjust the path according to your preferences, spending less time on spots you have already seen and dedicate more on your favourite sights.
