It's in the cards

And here I thought the only people who see opportunity in Tarot Card readings were Gypsies. But Hector Ayala, that ain't no Gypsy name. That's (allegedly) a girl-rapist name.
A 15-year-old girl told a jury yesterday that Hector Ayala, 59, a man she once considered family, tricked her into having sex by saying that it would ward off misfortune and help make wishes come true.
She said that when she was 13, Ayala read her Tarot cards and said that he saw bad luck in her near future. He told her that it could be averted if she allowed him to perform oral sex on her.
"He was reading my cards and told me that I wasn't on a good path and that I had to do these things called 'five' and 'seven' to make things better," the girl said. "I kept thinking, 'Is this rape? Is this rape?'" I thought, 'No, it wouldn't be, because he cares about me.'"
