    Prosecutor drops rape charges vs. athlete - CharlotteObserver.com

    According to the dismissal document, a 1979 N. C. Supreme Court ruling called State v. Way says that if intercourse begins consensually, "no rape has occurred though the victim later withdraws consent during the same act of intercourse."

    She says there was no consent to intercourse, but the case seems to have been dropped due to lack of evidence, which is often the case in these type of cases.

    Is it right that a ruling, like the above, can be referred to in another case at any point?

    It's just, I was under the impression that if someone said 'no' at any point, anything beyond that could be construed as rape. ?

    Yes, a ruling can be referred to as it could be a precedent. But I'm pretty sure that ruling doesn't apply in either English or Scots law, and that if she claims she said stop then if he continued it would be rape. BUt as I say, it comes down to the word of one against the other, and I would say that is what is being applied here, as she denies ever consenting at all.
