In Dedham, Massachusetts, a dominatrix has been acquitted of manslaughter in connection with the death of a client following a heart attack experienced under her services. The charge was for failing to help him rather than for causing the heart attack. Report from CNN.com:
During his closing argument to the jury, prosecutor Robert Nelson put on a black leather mask with a zippered mouth opening and re-enacted the bondage session.
With both hands, he reached back and clutched the top of a blackboard as if strapped to the rack. Then he hung his head as if dead.
Asher’s lawyer objected, and the judge agreed.
“That’s enough Mr. Nelson,” Judge Charles Grabau said. “Thank you for your demonstration.”
