Rape trial reminds me of Hawaii Five-0 episode

Taking the stand for the first time at her husband’s rape trial on Wednesday (July 11), the wife of general practitioner Wee Teong Boo said he could not have raped his patient as he was unable to achieve and sustain an erection.

Today

This reminded me of an episode in the original 1960s and 70s series. A decorated marine was accused of rape and murder, which he denied. The case seemed an open and shut case because all the circomstantial evidence pointed to him. But in the final scene, Steve McGarrett told the suspect that the police had medical evidence that he was unable to achieve and sustain an erection, and so he could not have committed the crime.

Steve McGarrett asked him why didn’t he tell them of his medical condition because it was only through luck that the police found the evidence that cleared him. Didn’t he realise that he could be executed if found guilty?

He remained silent (I think) but the anguish and shame showed on his face.
