72-yr-old accused of sexually assaulting disabled woman says penis 'accidentally' entered victim
The woman reportedly has 'mental deficiencies' and complied with the man's demands because she was scared of him
A 72-year-old man accused of rape has told investigators that his penis "accidentally" entered the vagina of the woman that he raped, according to official police reports.
Kait8 reports that Louie Carl James Rogers from Mountain View, Arkansas is being held at the Stone County Detention Center on one count of rape on a bond of $75,000. According to the victim's account, the incident took place on November 5t at Rogers' home in Mountain View. Rogers tried to inappropriately touch her after she had finished showering and at one point even asked her to take off her pants, according to official court documents.
The victim has supposed "mental deficiencies" and complied with the man's demands because she was “scared of Mr. Rogers.” She repeatedly asked him to stop but Rogers did not listen and went on to penetrate her. After the incident, he reportedly roamed around nude for several minutes.
After reporting the alleged assault to the police, the victim was taken to a local medical center for a sexual assault examination. Rogers was taken to the police station for questioning where he met with investigators. This is when Rogers completely denied the allegations, claiming he was unable to have sex. He was also read his Miranda rights during the proceedings.
Rogers was informed by Chief Bobby Day that the victim was going to undergo medical examinations and that evidence including bodily fluids was going to be collected. The police also asked Rogers if his DNA would show up in the tests to which he said it would not and also agreed to give the police a sample of his DNA. After the sample had been taken, the police left the room for a few minutes and the returned to question Rogers about the DNA that was found inside the victim.
It was during this time, according to the affidavit, that Rogers claimed that he “rubbed his penis around her vagina and might have accidentally put it inside her.” He also told the police chief that he had kissed the victim on her body. Court documents also said, “He stated that he didn’t mention it earlier due to being asked about sex, and he stated that he cannot have it.”
The affidavit was reviewed, after which a judge found probable cause on Tuesday, November 6 and Rogers was arrested with his bond being set at $75,000.
