Greg Westfall, a criminal defense attorney in Fort Worth, said the case against Kavanaugh should be dismissed based on her traumatic past.
“I think it’s utterly inhumane to have her in jail right now,” Westfall said. “To run her through the legal system for this is completely inhumane unless one can be convinced there is no consent in this deal.”
Westfall said counseling is more appropriate for Kavanaugh than a possible prison sentence.
“Is she a predator? Hell no,” he said. “Is she someone who is going to be able to better communicate with a 14-year-old than an adult? Hell yes. She’ll catch up at some point. Not at her mid-20s.”
