2 months after rape case dropped, prosecutors still insist Bennie Starks battered victim Two months ago, Lake County prosecutors dropped rape charges against Bennie Starks, clearing him of a crime that sent him to prison for 20 years before DNA suggested his innocence. Yet prosecutors continue to fight to hold him responsible for battering the same woman during the same incident. http://articles.chicagotribune.com/...bennie-starks-battery-case-bite-mark-evidence This is outrageous. Starks has been freed, yet he wants to clear his name and remove the felony conviction from his record. The prosecuter is refusing to drop the assault charges even though recent DNA evidence showed Starks was not the person responsible for the rape or assault. Does anybody think this is the right thing for the prosecutor to do?
