A Dallas judge's handling of a rape case and her suggestion that the 14-year-old victim was lying has outraged the city's top prosecutor, who said Monday that the case makes other victims reluctant to help authorities.
The Dallas County district attorney said he's "alarmed" by a judge's decision to impose probation against a 20-year-old man who pleaded guilty to raping a 14-year-old girl.

Dallas County District Attorney Craig Watkins said after the ruling that Thompson made "in our estimation the right ruling, he did the right thing."
