The barber's case has a preceding infamous New Yorker, John Wayne Bobbit who allegedly mistreated his wife. His Ecuadorian wife, Lorena, in June 23, 1993 cut off nearly half of his penis on grounds of cheating, abuse, forcing her to get an abortion, and other heinous acts. She threw the penis into a field and was later located after an exhaustive search by the police who then packed in ice, and delivered to the hospital where John Bobbitt was being treated.
According to testimony given by Lorena Bobbitt in a 1994 court hearing, he was intoxicated after a night of partying and then raped her. Subsequently John Wayne Bobbitt was tried for and acquitted of spousal rape. The jury found Lorena not guilty due to insanity causing an irresistible impulse to sexually wound her husband. Lorena underwent a 45-day evaluation period at Central State Hospital, located in Petersburg, Virginia. In 1995, after six years of marriage, Lorena and John divorced.
After the divorce, John continued to have run-ins with the law. He was reportedly arrested seven times for offenses ranging from assault to grand larceny. He appeared in a gimmick adult biopic of his own life, as well as a dominatrix video in order to pay his medical (a nine-hour operation) and legal bills. Eventually he began dating someone new, publicly claiming that they would remain abstinent until they married, but after a while he got thrown in jail for hitting her. Early in 1997, he became a minister at a Las Vegas church, but told Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" (1996) that a sequel to _John Wayne Bobbit Uncut_ (1997) was not out of the question.
In December 1997, Gallo made news when she was charged with assault for punching her mother, Elvia Gallo, as they watched television. She was eventually found not guilty of assault and her mother continued to live with her. In 2007, she was working at a beauty salon in the Washington, D.C. area and in the same year founded Lorena's Red Wagon organization, which helps prevent domestic violence through family oriented activities.
The Bobbitt case was one of the first cases that brought public attention to the subject of marital rape.
