A man ignorant of Roman customs would assume Caelius had committed a serious crime, considering this trial is being held during a holiday. That man would be wrong; this is nothing but the accusation of a prostitute.
Rebuttal 2: Bribes and Malpractice
The prosecution insinuated that Caelius' father and he are not on good terms, and that his townspeople dislike him. Both of these assertions are plainly wrong: Caelius' father his here to support him and his townsmen revere him enough to bestow upon him awards he did not request.
Rebuttal 3: Caelius' Finances
Callous cannot be dammed for his involvement with Caitiline early on in his career. Caitiline was a manipulative mastermind. I myself was almost fooled by him. Calius, however, has remained loyal to me and had no involvement with Caitlin's conspiracy.
Rebuttal 4: Assaulting a Senator
The prosecution has also claimed that Caelius took bribes and engaged in electoral malpractice. If that were true, why would Caelius be actively prosecuting other people for the same crime? It would only make it more difficult for him to do so himself.
Caelius has been accused of having severe debts. This is untrue.
