if he hasn't been charged by now, I doubt that he will.

You have to figure that McStabbin's lawyer is going to make them think twice about charging him if they don't have a clear case.

IMO, that would cause more problems than it would fix. I mean, it's not like all guys who are asses and womanizers suddenly become angels when they put a ring on a chicks finger, and married guys aren't immune to accusations of sexual assault and harassment. He just needs to figure out that if he wants to live the lifestyle of a womanizer that he needs to pick his ladies a lot more carefully, or find a madame to set him up with some "escorts" who will keep their mouths shut.

They may fear his lawyer and PI team but they fear public out-cry more. Charges and court date coming imo.

He will be charged. The DA is doing a couple things....

#1 he's letting things settle down. He wants the hysteria surrounding the case to chill out. Makes it easier to gather credible evidence / witnesses.

#2 Building a case..... From what I hear they are just now getting DNA from Ben. You need more then just DNA evidence to convict. DNA is the nail in the coffin. If the DA can get enough evidence to prove probable cause with out the DNA then you move to the next step. Get the DNA and file charges. Obviously the DA already has Ben's DNA on the victim. You send that to a lab to make sure it's usable. That takes time.

Given that they now want Ben's DNA sample...I would assume they have a usable sample on the victim to compare. The only reason you would need that is if you were planning on going to trial. If there was not enough supporting evidence to prove probably cause then there is no reason to take a DNA sample....Ben already admitted sexual contact. A DNA sample alone proves nothing.

It also sounds like the victim is trying to build a civil case. DNA evidence plus the word of an honest / innocent young girl may be enough for a jury to award $ to the victim. Good chance Ben just buys him self out of that.

i have no clue what they want the dna for because ben already admitted what they did but im hoping its not to compare with something like his skin under her fingernail because that would be the nail in the coffin

that will depend were the scratch is if there even is one. obviously i was speaking hypothetically but if she did scratch his face, arms, neck, etc it would show she was fighting him off. i seriously doubt thats the case but was just throwing it out there because everyone was assuming they were checking dna because they found seman on her mouth or something

with that said im one of the ones that feel ben will not be charged. i wouldnt bet my bank account on it but i feel he wont be. what i would bet the account on is him being found not guilty. i fully belive he will never be found guilty of sexual assult.
