Gregory Longoria Jr. Convicted of Assault in S&M Trial
Gregory Longoria Jr., on trial for assaulting a woman he knew by burning her breasts and genitals, choking her and hitting her with a belt -- the guy whose defense was that the woman enjoyed such S&M games -- was convicted today.
The Houston Chronicle reports the jury took about three hours to convict him of aggravated assault.
The victim in the case testified on his behalf -- kinda. Media reports say she told the jury she agreed to doing some of the stuff, but it was taken too far. She said, "I don't remember" when faced with many questions about earlier statements to police that she was scared and shocked about what happened, and Longoria's defense attorney, who had called her to the stand, ended up trying to paint her as a liar.
