But then Interpol launched its manhunt, rendering Assange a cross-border fugitive. So it seemed the "sex charges" might be more serious than initially thought.
But what are they?
They're not "rape," everyone agrees--because the sex was consensual. They also aren't unspecified "molestation."
What they appear to be is a violation of a Swedish law against "having sex without a condom."
Interestingly, even that charge doesn't appear to precisely apply in this case.
A condom was apparently used--initially. But it broke. So the dispute is about whether it broke "accidentally" (he said) or it broke "on purpose" (she said).
