On Monday, the victim of the gang rape that occurred at Richmond High School made her first appearance to testify at Contra Costa County Court House in Martinez.

Early this month, the trial began for two men charged with raping a teenage girl in Richmond. The 2009 gang rape left the girl beaten and unconscious after a homecoming dance, where a crowd of men reportedly participated or watched the rape, and none called the police. Two other men accepted plea deals for time in prison. We get an update on the trial.

Host: Dave Iverson

Guests:

  • Dara Cashman, former deputy district attorney for Contra Costa County; she headed the sexual assault unit and prosecuted the case's preliminary hearing before retiring
  • Malaika Fraley, reporter covering courts and justice for The Contra Costa Times
