UT: Sexual Assault Convictions Overturned For Improper Argument

Court House News Service reports that a Utah Court of Appeals has overturned the sexual assault convictions of two Salt Lake City men after the prosecutor encouraged the jury to protect the victim and women in general from an implied, future attack by the two men. David Akok was convicted of rape, while his co-defendant John Jok was convicted on two counts of forcible sexual assault.
