Gay Hawaii
businessman acquitted of rape charges

A well-known gay businessman in Hawaii has been found not guilty of charges that he raped a 31-year-old man. Jack Law, owner of Hula's Bar and Lei Stand, was acquitted after the jury deliberated for less than an hour. Law is a former member of the Hawaii Civil Rights Commission and founder of the HIV/AIDS organization Life Foundation. The three counts of second-degree sexual assault were filed by an acquaintance of Law's who claimed the businessman drugged and then raped him in March 2005. Law never denied the two had sex but maintained that it was consensual and that he had not given drugs to the man. Law's attorney characterized the accuser as a "truth-challenged" opportunist seeking to ruin Law's reputation. (Sirius OutQ News)
