BIZARRE … Necophilia now finally banned in Wisconsin.
The Wisconsin State Supreme Court over turned a lower courts earlier decision that there was nothing in state law that banned necrophilia. The WI Supreme Court ruled 5–2 that in fact there were laws. The ruling caused a reinstatement of sexual assault charges against three suspects.
The ruling reinstates attempted sexual assault charges against twin brothers Nicholas and Alexander Grunke and Dustin Radke, all 22. They face up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
The basis of the ruling is on the fact that the state bans sexual intercourse when there is no consent. There is no wording in the law that states whether the victim is dead or alive and by using an ounce of common sense a dead person cannot give consent. Of course the disturbing thought is that 2 judges tried to find a way that sex with a corpse was not a crime. Nice! One would think that no consent means just that … NO CONSENT! It is disturbing to know that there are judges out there who do not think that the dead have rights, only their assailants do.
Not anymore, the court ruled in a 5-2 decision.
Justice Patience Roggensack, writing a majority opinion with three other justices, said state law bans sexual intercourse with anyone who does not give consent whether a victim is dead or alive at the time. Dead bodies obviously can’t give consent, she said.
“A reasonably well-informed person would understand the statute to prohibit sexual intercourse with a dead person,” she wrote.
