    A former University of Massachusetts student, accused on assaulting two women on the Amherst campus in 2010, was deemed not responsible for his actions following a two-day bench trial in Hampshire Superior Court.

    Judge C. Jeffrey Kinder found Luther Gorahkov, 25, of Providence, R.I., innocent on Wednesday by reason of mental disease or defect, according to information released by the Northwestern District Attorney’s office. He faced charges of assault with intent to rape, kidnapping and annoying or accosting a person of the opposite sex.

    Both incidents occurred on Oct. 15, 2010 between 5 and 6:10 p.m., according to an alert posted on the University of Massachusetts Police Department website.

    A psychologist, testifying for the defense, said Gorahkov has bipolar disorder with psychotic features.

    Gorahkov, formerly of Amherst, was transferred to Worcester State Hospital on Wednesday for an observation period of up to 40 days.

    Gorahkov fled the scene after the alleged assaults and turned himself in to a Holyoke police officer who had been working a detail in the Holyoke Crossing shopping center about five days later.

    Forty days and he'll be back in the game assaulting the citizens of Hampshire county, or worse, while off his "poisonous" meds, like the rest of the irresponsibles.:rolleyes:

    You are right, he will escalate, The families of his next victims need to remember Judge Kinder and sue his ass right out of the bench.

    While I admire your spirit and share that sentiment, judicial immunity (or is that impunity?) rules and judges everywhere don't give a shit because of it.
