Sex With Corpses Deemed Wrong

Wisconsin, America, has now banned sex with dead bodies, the state Supreme Court ruled in reinstating charges against three men accused of digging up a corpse to have sex with it.
Nothing in state law banned necrophilia. Those decisions prompted public outrage in Wisconsin and on the Internet, where one blogger wrote: “Doing the dirty with the dead OK in Wisconsin.”
The court ruled in a 5-2 decision I just wonder who the 2 open minded individuals were.
Justice Patience Roggensack, writing a majority opinion with three other justices, said state law bans sexual intercourse with anyone who does not give consent whether a victim is dead or alive at the time. Dead bodies obviously can’t give consent, she said.
“A reasonably well-informed person would understand the statute to prohibit sexual intercourse with a dead person,” she wrote.
The decision brings Wisconsin’s law in line with more than 20 out of 50 states who prohibit necrophilia or the abuse of a corpse.

The ruling reinstates attempted sexual assault charges against twin brothers Nicholas and Alexander Grunke and Dustin Radke, all 22.
They face up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
Armed with shovels, a crowbar and a box of condoms, the men went to a cemetery in Cassville in southwestern Wisconsin in 2006 to remove the body of a 20-year-old woman killed the week before in a motorcycle crash.
One of them had seen an obituary photo of the pretty nursing assistant and asked the others for help digging up her corpse so he could have sexual intercourse with it.
They used the shovels to reach her grave but were unable to pry the concrete vault open and fled after a car drove into the cemetery.
Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen, whose office represented prosecutors in the appeal, praised the decision and called it "dead on."
Suzanne Edwards, a lawyer representing Nicholas Grunke, said she was disappointed in the decision. The men will be arraigned on the charges and have a chance to plead not guilty, she said, emphasizing the prosecutors’ contentions were only allegations right now.

Just because you go to a graveyard with condoms and dig up a pretty female corpse doesn't mean you're going to engage in necrophilia, some people's imagination just gets carried away sometimes.

Do those 3 handsome young men look the type to creep out real live females and get rejected on a regular basis?

Purely charming. I'm sure they thought the parents wouldn't mind.
