I think the Leagle website might be a good outreach resource. If you go to their search page and do a phrase search on Alcoholics Anonymous, you get thousands of results. The story on the front page today is about a “couple” that met in AA.
People v. Wisdom
A. The prosecution’s caseIn September 2007, S.K. met Wisdom at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. The two began dating in December 2007. After a couple of months, S.K. ended the relationship. Wisdom wanted to continue the relationship. On the evening of February 29, 2008, S.K. agreed to see Wisdom. Wisdom and S.K. decided to purchase some alcohol and cocaine and then go to S.K.’s residence. S.K. and Wisdom arrived at S.K.’s apartment at approximately 9:00 p.m. that evening.After injecting himself with cocaine, Wisdom unexpectedly struck S.K. in the face with his hand, causing her to bleed. S.K. believed that Wisdom had broken her nose. Wisdom then shoved his penis in S.K.’s face and ordered her to orally copulate him. Wisdom continued to physically and sexually assault S.K. over a period of several hours. Wisdom struck S.K. in the face with his fists multiple times, struck S.K. in the face with a fire extinguisher, kicked her in the ribs, threatened her with a knife, threatened to kill her, and forcibly injected her with cocaine. Wisdom also penetrated S.K.’s anus and vagina with his penis several times, and repeatedly forced her to orally copulate him.At approximately 1:00 a.m., a friend of S.K.’s, Natalie S. (Natalie), knocked on the door of the residence. Wisdom told S.K. to get into the bed and to cover her face. Wisdom opened the door and allowed Natalie to enter. Once Natalie was inside the apartment, Wisdom repeatedly accused Natalie of being an undercover police officer. Wisdom shoved Natalie down on a couch, told her that he was going to “fuck” her, and began to remove his clothes. Natalie pretended to vomit, and asked for some water. Natalie and Wisdom went into the kitchen. While in the kitchen, Wisdom injected himself with cocaine and grabbed a knife. Wisdom slowly ran the knife across the outside of Natalie’s clothes, while telling her that he was going to have sex with her. Wisdom placed the knife inside his boxer shorts and put his hands on Natalie’s breasts and bottom. Natalie grabbed the knife from Wisdom, and the two began to struggle for the knife. During the struggle, Wisdom fell on the ground, and Natalie was able to flee the apartment.After Natalie left, Wisdom told S.K. that they had to leave because the police were coming. As Wisdom and S.K. were walking to Wisdom’s car, S.K. was able to escape to a nearby convenience store. A store clerk telephoned the police, while S.K. hid in a storage room. The police were initially unable to locate Wisdom. However, a few days later, federal agents arrested Wisdom in Florida, and he was extradited back to California.B.
