If you think rape is only something that happens between people who don’t know each other, stop reading and go back to whatever it was you were doing. This petition won’t change your mind. So, save yourself time. Just stop reading now.

  • It seems Maryland doesn’t consider rape by a spouse or intimate partner to be a crime worthy of prosecution.
  • It seems Maryland thinks forcing your penis into your wife or girlfriend’s vagina or anus is intimacy.
  • It seems Maryland thinks such a case is too much of a “he said; she said” battle.
  • It seems Maryland thinks the burden of proof is too high even though there is a living victim and a living offender both available to provide testimony.
  • It seems Maryland doesn’t think 12 people would be convinced.
  • It seems Maryland thinks the victim is allowing the death (murder) of her cat to cloud her judgment.

It seems to me Maryland prefers to protect abusers and allow victims of domestic violence to “deal with it” and “get over it” and “move on.” I wonder what the Maryland Attorney General would think if this happened to one of their own?

Angela contacted me personally asking me to share her story and encourage everyone to sign her petition. She is the victim of a brutal rape and the owner of a cat allegedly tortured and murdered by her alleged rapist. She is seeking justice asking each of you to sign her petition so her alleged rapist can be judged by a jury of his peers and NOT by the office of the Maryland Attorney General in Montgomery County Maryland located in Rockville, Maryland.

This petition will be delivered to:
Douglas Gansler, Maryland Attorney General
Sherri Koch, Assistant State Attorney

Sign now! Maryland Attorney General: Put Angela’s rapist on trial

Angela, 33, was brutally raped, both orally and anally, by her then boyfriend. Her account is below.

He grabbed my head and forced his penis into my mouth. Previously he had rammed his penis into my anus as I screamed in agony. After he repeatedly raped me, he commented that we had more sex that week than we had in a long time.

Angela found the courage to report her rapes to local police. However, her attempts to seek justice have been put on hold, as Maryland State Attorneys are unwilling to put Angela’s rapist on trial. They typically only prosecute ‘stranger’ rapes and have moved to dismiss the case.

This is not good enough. According to RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network), approximately two thirds of rapes were completed by someone known to the victim. There should be no impunity granted to men who rape women under the guise of a relationship.

We call on the Maryland State Attorneys to proceed with a trial and give Angela a chance of seeing justice.

This could happen to your daughter, your granddaughter, your sister, your mother. Would you want the accused brought to justice? Sign the petition. Bring a rapist and animal abuser and murderer to trial. Let his peers make the decision, not a bunch of people in suits who seem bothered by this business of protecting an innocent woman and others in similar situations.

  4. I have not been able to find any information on this case beyond the petition request – no news stories etc, nothing to indicate that this is a real event. Can you direct me to something “official” that describes the facts of the case? Thanks.

    • Hahaha! Well, that’s the problem, bmorejoe. It seems to you this woman’s accusations aren’t “official” enough? Have you ever gone to the police and they just snicker at you and say they can’t help you? There is a case that is open and they are going to close it. You can contact the name of the attorneys on the petition. They should be able to confirm or deny that this woman Angela has requested a trial.

  5. How is it that men own women? If a woman consents to sex once, she’s obligated to allow that man free sexual access at anytime? So if I were to compare this to a petty crime to illustrate a point, if my boss allowed me to use her credit card for lunch once, I am permitted to use her money at anytime from that point onward? But of course you can’t compare rape to credit card fraud. Except in the latter there would be full prosecution.

    • I am as confused by this as you, peaceforallbeings. I’ve always said that even after a police officer has seen actual abuse, the victim still has an uphill battle in the courts. There is an unwritten rule or law stating we (in particular women) are somehow responsible for the behavior of the men we allow into our lives and their treatment of us is a direct reflection of how we WANT or ASK to be treated. Hmmmm? I don’t think so. Only a masochist would joyfully accept an abusive monster to share a life with her. Thank you for your comment. 🙂
