People are shocked after a judge dismissed a rape charge because the victim did not scream loud enough, probing that she consented to the sexual encounter.

Police in Italy, arrested a 46-year-old man after allegedly raping a woman on a hospital bed.

The man of Turin, has been charged with one count of rape. In court, the judge dismissed the charge because prosecutors failed to prove that the sexual encounter was rape.

The suspect claimed that the sexual encounter was consensual as the woman wanted to have sex with him on the hospital bed.

The judge pointed out that during the alleged attack, the woman did not scream loud enough. The judge also demanded to know why she did not push him away.

The judge did hear testimony that the woman told the man “enough,” but he ignored her. The woman testified that she did not scream because she was terrified.

After dismissing the rape charge, justice minister Andrea Orlando has ordered an investigation into the case.
