Troopers and Accountants

In an Associated Press story about the seven New Jersey state troopers who were suspended with pay over a woman's claim that they sexually assaulted her, an attorney representing one of the troopers contends that the activity was consensual and that the troopers were off-duty when they met the woman in question. "They could have been seven accountants," the attorney, Charles J. Sciarra, said.

Is what these men do for a living relevant? They’re either guilty or not guilty, whether they’re state troopers, accountants, attorneys or members of any other profession.
