Transcript Victory in Austin Annette, a member of the Austin Lesbian Organization, has won her case against Francis "Skipper" Reisig, the man who kicked her at the Rites of Spring Campout in June. Reisig was one of four men who harassed, threatened and threw rocks at lesbian women at the campout. In Austin, a four-woman, two-man jury deliberated for two hours before finding Reisig guilty of assault with intent to commit bodily injury. Sentencing was to be on October 6th. The prosecution had recommended a jail term, but first offenders usually receive a probated sentence. At the Rites of Spring, Annette was kicked in the groin twice by Reisig and was taken to Brackenridge Hospital where her injuries were documented, thus allowing her to press charges. Other women who were manhandled or hit by rocks in the incident could not press charges for lack of medical confirmation of injury. The case was brought to court on September 14 and 40 women from the Aus tin Lesbian Organization attended the two- day trial. Defense strategy for Reisig was to establish that the women at the campout were creating a near-riot situation and were having sex orgies. Although sexual orientation was ruled to be irrelevant to the case, the defense attorney, Terry Stark, repeatedly tried to bring it up until he was finally reprimanded by the judge. At one point, when Stark asked Annette whether she was a member of the Austin Lesbian Organization, she smiled and answered, "Yes, I am." According to the ALO newsletter, "the cooperation and support of the lesbian community, the lawyers, legal advisors, and jurors was certainly heartening, and the fact that we could work successfully within the existing legal structure was, for many of us, a revelation in itself."
