Veterinarian rapes two teens after spiking drinks with animal tranquilizer taken from his practice
36-year-old Todd Glover from Santa Fe allegedly gave drinks to 'Jenny Doe' and two other minor girls at the Coushatta Casino Resort on December 1, 2018
A veterinarian in Texas who was accused of raping two teenagers at a casino in Louisiana allegedly used medication from his own clinic to incapacitate them. The 36-year-old vet, Todd Glover from Santa Fe, allegedly gave drinks to "Jenny Doe" and two other minor girls at the Coushatta Casino Resort on December 1, 2018. The drinks were alleged to have been laced with medication that is generally reserved for animals.
ABC13 reported that in court documents, the victims only realized that something sinister happened after they woke up from the deep sleep that the medication had placed them in. The lawsuit also alleged that the victims were unconscious when Glover "proceeded to engage in non-consensual sexual acts with Jenny Doe".
Glover's veterinarian office was raided by Texas Rangers and State Troopers. The Texas State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners were also present with the Rangers at the Animal Hospital in Sante Fe as they looked for more clues. Glover was finally charged in January with rape and battery. He denied both charges.
The lawsuit alleged: "Despite being aware of the fact that (the victim) could not legally or ethically consent to an exchange of sexual acts, Glover exploited and took advantage of (her). No person could reasonably believe that (she) could give valid consent for sexual contact."
The plaintiffs' attorney, Samantha Martinez said: "This lawsuit seeks to hold Dr. Glover and the business entities he is affiliated with accountable not only for sexual assault but also for the lack of safety measures taken to ensure the powerful drugs used in animal clinics not fall in to the hands of people like Todd Glover."
According to the Houston Chronicle, Martinez also said that Glover and the minor girls knew one another from before when they took a trip to Louisiana, even though the type of connection is not clear at the moment. The girl and her family are looking to get more than $100,000 in damages.
As a result of all the allegations that have been laid against him, Glover's vet license has been temporarily suspended and he isn't allowed to practice at the moment. The lawsuit has also accused Glover's businesses of improperly securing medication.
Authorities with the Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners have alleged that Glover did not keep proper records of multiple controlled substances that are used to treat pet sickness, including ketamine, tramadol, and diazepam.
