Lawyer wants to use a plaster cast of client's penis for testimony

The lawyer for a man accused of raping a 13-year-old girl wants to have a plaster cast made of his client's penis to use as evidence at his trial that he didn't commit the crime.

But prosecutors in the case are firmly against it. Ronald A. McDade, 33, of Green Street, is being held without bail on charges that he sexually assaulted and raped a 13-year-old girl in his apartment last January.

His defense lawyer, Marvin Gold of Hatboro, on Thursday explained his reasoning behind seeking the cast. He said that his client's penis is apparently “extremely large.”

He said that the alleged victim of McDade's assault, although she said she experienced “great pain,” exhibited no signs of injury to her genitals, according to a medical examination. “It occurs to me that, given my client's size, it's unusual there were no injuries,” Gold said.
