According to Independent.com latest report, Spiteri explained that the victim asked the anonymous DJ to play a song. After that, he said that the criminal baited the woman and asked her to stay at his house in Paceville.

The Alleged DJ Rapist Now Denied of Bail
MaltaToday reported that the prosecution did not allow the accused individual to be bailed out because he had no ties to Malta. On the other hand, the court also stated that the woman hadn't testified yet.
Although this is the case, the defense stated that he should not be discriminated against because of his different nationality. As of the moment, rape is a serious crime in the United States.
Criminal Defense reported that the lack of consent during intercourse is already considered a crime. This means that if one of the individuals did not allow the other person to touch them or have sex with them, it would fall under rape or sexual harassment.
Other Details of Rape
Aside from lack of consent, people would also face rape charges if they have sexual intercourse with other individuals who cannot provide their consent.
These include the following:
- A person who is incapacitated (drugged, drunk, unconscious, or physically helpless)
- Developmentally disabled person
- Someone who is mentally ill
When it comes to penalties, the accused individual will face imprisonment. However, there are some instances when the criminal is required to undergo treatment as a condition of probation. Aside from these, convicted individuals would also need to pay fines, especially if the victim requested it in his or her filings.
