When girl's tight jeans help in rape accused aquittal

PROLOGUE :Only the victims statement is stated enough as evidence in rape cases. But, an Australian court found some foul play in the case. In this case, the jeans played the lead role: 
The Sydney jury sent a note to the judge during the trial asking for more information about 'how exactly Nick took off her jeans'. The note from a jury member added: 'I doubt those kind of jeans can be removed without any sort of collaboration.' 
EPILOGUE : Here are some more interesting facts, by Daily Mail :
The not guilty finding follows two other courts - in Seoul and Italy - dealing with the question of whether a woman wearing the tight-fitting jeans can be raped.
In the Seoul case in 2008, the court overturned a seven-year sentence of a man convicted of raping a woman wearing skinny jeans.
But in the same year an Italian court upheld a rape conviction, ruling that 'jeans cannot be compared to any type of chastity belt.'
