Takes Two to Tango

Practice Area: Criminal defense

Outcome: Guilty to a second degree sex offense.

Description: Judge said he did not find Chacon-Bonilla to be a sexual "predator," as prosecutors had argued. He also said he thought it was unlikely that Chacon-Bonilla would repeat his offense. "Her culpability is obvious," Nitkin said. "It's hard for me, as a woman, to say that an 11-year-old child is culpable. . . . But it did take two to tango in this circumstance, and [Thompson] had the guts to say it." Katherine Shaver; Craig .
