His political career had taken a near-devastating blow when three years before he had found himself before a jury of Roman knights for allegedly having sexual relations with a Vestal Virgin, something forbidden by Roman law and thought to bring consequences from the gods. Once again, his connections with the dregs of Rome and carefully placed bribes had earned him an acquittal, and the virgin, Fabia, had been buried alive for her promiscuity.
