Colorado sexual assault laws[edit]

His statement says "Although I truly believe this encounter between us was consensual, I recognize now that she did not and does not view this incident the same way I did. .. I now understand how she feels that she did not consent to this encounter."

There's nothing on the page about the laws in Colorado - is a mistaken belief in consent a valid defence there? In places where it is not, this would be a confession of rape. Lovingboth (talk) 16:08, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

A mistaken belief in consent is a valid defense to rape everywhere in America. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 172.56.12.20 (talk) 04:22, 15 April 2016 (UTC)

Accuser's name[edit]

Do not mention her name here. If it's not appropriate in the article for WP:BLP reasons, it's not appropriate here: the BLP applies throughout, not just in article space. Thank you. Drmies (talk) 01:34, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

How does WP:BLP prohibit the accuser's name being here? Her name can be verified though legitimate sources of information, inclusion of it would not violate the NPOV perspective of the article and inclusion of the name would not be original research. Mentioning that the accuser collapsed a few years later of a cocaine overdose might provide a POV for the article, but publishing her name would not. Shabeki (talk) 06:25, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

This victim's name is necessary to understand and record the full scope of the story. It should be included, and does not violate BLP guidelines. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 172.56.12.20 (talk) 04:20, 15 April 2016 (UTC)

 I agree; no reason not to mention Katelyn Faber. 70.71.245.2 (talk) 21:29, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 4 July 2017[edit]

In the first sentence, a hyperlink is placed directly after "a 19-year-old hotel employee". I'm not sure why this is, but it definitely needs to be removed. Heade121 (talk) 01:57, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

Accuser's name(again)[edit]

The accuser's name was added, the change was reverted. So, let's have a discussion about whether or not the WP article about this sexual assault case should include the accuser's name. This issue has been discussed before (see Archve 1: Name Redacted, Archive 1: Name of accuser & (further up this page) Accuser's name). Shearonink (talk) 03:11, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
