been different absent the distortion and mischaracterization of Troutman's defense," Gutierrez wrote.
During his trial, Troutman said the woman was alert and an active Nike Metcon Alternative participant in sex, and her failure to remember consenting did not automatically mean he raped her. Experts for the defense also testified that amnesia is a well known side effect of Ambien.
One of the women eventually went back to her room at the Grove Hotel, where she took an Ambien sleeping pill and went to bed. Troutman used a key card to enter the woman's room later that night, saying the woman's friend had given it to him, though that was disputed in court.
An arena football player from California who was convicted of raping a woman at a Boise hotel should receive a new trial because a prosecutor misstated the man's defense during closing arguments, the Idaho Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday.
The evidence wasn't clear enough to assume the outcome of the trial would have stayed the same even without the distorted arguments, the court found.
Prosecutors charged Troutman with felony rape and Reynolds with felony burglary. Reynolds was found guilty and sentenced to five years probation after completing a 180 day prison program. Troutman was found guilty in 2007 and sentenced to 20 years in prison.
"By using the particular analogy that she did, the prosecutor gravely distorted and mischaracterized Troutman's defense," Judge Sergio Gutierrez wrote for appellate court. "He did not ever present a defense that because the victim could not remember Womens Nike Metcon 1 Shoes

"When you start shifting the blame in a case like this onto the victim for her inability to remember every detail of what she was doing behind her locked door, in her own bedroom, in her own bed, then you are turning the world upside down," Alidjani said.
But the Idaho Court of Appeals found that such characterization of Troutman's defense amounted to prosecutorial misconduct.
Investigators found there were four entries into the room that night, and when the woman woke, she couldn't remember the encounter but had only a vague sense that she had sex. She also found that some of her belongings were missing, including an iPod, camera and cash.
Troutman had sex with the woman and has maintained she was alert and an active participant in the act. He then left, passed the key card to one of his teammates, Rennard Reynolds, and suggested that Reynolds could have sex with the woman too, according to court documents.

what happened there could be no crime, nor did he suggest that unconscious people should bear the 'blame' if they became victimized by criminals."
That was akin to blaming an Alzheimer's patient for failing to remember victimization or blaming someone whose house is robbed while they are sleeping because they failed to wake up, Alidjani said.
But Ada County Deputy Prosecutor Fafa Alidjani told the jury that the woman was either unconscious or unable to resist Troutman because of the alcohol and Ambien. Alidjani also said Troutman's defense essentially blamed the victim for her inability to remember the details of the attack.
Maurice Ronald Troutman, 27, of Long Beach, Calif., played for an arena football team called the Bakersfield Blitz, and on July 7, 2007, the team was playing against the Boise Burn in Boise.
"From an evidentiary standpoint, this case was not an open and shut case for the state, and Troutman presented a viable defense. Therefore, we cannot conclude beyond a reasonable doubt that the result of the trial would not have Nike Kyrie Irving Shoes
After the game, according to court records, the team and some coaches went to downtown bars. Two women who were friends with two of the coaches and who had also traveled to Boise for the game also went, according to court testimony.
