Rodger William Kelly says he raped his unconscious neighbor in order to “save her life.”
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, rape cases took a weird twist when one family is on trial for attacking a rape suspect.
But the case of 50-year-old Utah man is even weirder. Rodger William Kelly was charged with one count of first-degree felony rape claims he had sex with his unconscious female neighbor because “he was trying to save her life.” The two had a sexual relationship in the past but the woman told him they shouldn’t have sex again.
Rodger William Kelly says he found his neighbor passed out in front of her apartment. Rodger William Kelly took her into his house, changed her clothes, and put her into his bed all in an effort to raise her body temperature.
But then he decided to try sexual intercourse. The police statement says, “He said he did place it inside of her to try and get her temperature up.”
When that did not work Rodger William Kelly began administering CPR. That’s when police arrived in response to an unconscious person call.
Later on, the woman told police she thought she was raped because of bruising on her pelvic and upper thighs. A rape kit could not confirm this because she was cleaned at the hospital while sedated, but Rodger William Kelly readily admits having sexual intercourse with her.
Considering the supposed motivations, do you think Rodger William Kelly should have been charged with rape?
