Tucker Carlson pressed the defense attorney for an illegal immigrant who is accused in the rape of a 14-year-old Maryland girl in a boys’ bathroom at Rockville High School.
Two teenage boys, 18 and 17, are accused in the rape. One of the two, 18-year-old Henry Sanchez-Milian, is an undocumented immigrant.
His attorney, David Moyse, confirmed that he plans to argue the sexual encounter was consensual, “not a rape in any sense.”
Carlson said the assertion sounds “insane.” Moyse agreed that it seems “horrible” that it would happen in a school, but that doesn’t mean it was “forced” or illegal.
Carlson said that is “in effect, an attack on this girl who told authorities that she was raped.”
“Is your argument going to be that she invited sex with two men in a bathroom at a high school in the middle of the day and then lied that it was rape?” he asked.
Moyse said he cannot discuss the details, but that he believes more evidence will come out beyond “the initial sensational headlines.”
“We have a system here. When people are accused, we go through the system,” said Moyse, adding that he doesn’t know his client personally.
Carlson told Moyse “you really better, before God, be sure about” the defense strategy of going after the accuser, noting that police said other students heard screams from the bathroom.
Moyse disputed Carlson’s characterization that he was “trashing” the female accuser.
In a follow-up on “Fox & Friends” this morning, Carlson said the attorney is in a “tough spot” and emphasized that all accused suspects have the right to legal defense.
“There is a human and moral element to this. … But I think it’s fair to ask the person representing him, ‘do you feel good about it?'” he explained.
Meantime, a leading U.S. senator is demanding to know why the accused teenager from Central America was allowed to enter and remain in the U.S. since crossing the border illegally months ago.
The superintendent in the school district has also come under criticism for accusing some parents of displaying “racism and xenophobia” in their responses.

Great story. Thank you for your service, Matias.

A Long Island man who served in the Marines and lost both legs below the knees after stepping on a bomb in Afghanistan was sworn in Friday as possibly the first fully active duty double amputee police officer in the country.
Matias Ferreira, 28, graduated from the Suffolk County Police Academy in Brentwood, L.I. His first assignment as a precinct patrol officer begins next week. He told Fox 5 New York he isn’t worried if he breaks a leg on the job.
“If I break my leg I go the trunk of my car and put on a new one and I’m back on duty,” he told the station.
The 2011 blast in Afghanistan shattered his legs, forcing doctors to amputate. The machine-gunner spent nearly a year recovering in a hospital outside Washington.
Ferreira stands on titanium prosthetics, Newsday reported. He dreamed of being a cop as a kid.
Ferreira completed 29-weeks of training at the academy, passing the same rigorous challenges as other recruits.
Have a coyote problem? Get a donkey. No, this photo isn’t a joke. While they’re mostly known for their ornery and stubborn reputation, donkeys also loathe coyotes. In fact, a lone, daring ‘yote in South Carolina recently learned just how hostile an irritated jackass can be, and paid the ultimate price.
Steve Hipps shared the story and photos of his coyote-stomping donkey, Buck, with Georgia Outdoor News.
Buck resides in a small backyard pasture on Hipps’ nine acres in Simpsonville, South Carolina. He used to share space with a girlfriend, but when she moved into another pasture, a bold, daytime-traveling coyote began showing up—and that didn’t sit well with Buck.
“This one day, my cousin, who lives behind me, called at about 6 o’clock in the evening and said, ‘That coyote’s coming through my yard heading your way.’ And we live in a populated area,” Hipps said. “This thing came across the field in broad daylight.”
“By the time I got over there, Buck was stomping the coyote. Then he reached down and picked him up by the neck and started slinging him like a rag doll. I grabbed my phone and got two pictures.”
