Santa Ana, CA - Ruby’s crime tip of the day: If you’re going to commit a violent crime, please have the common sense not to videotape it. You see, if you do, then someone may just pass that tape along to authorities and get your ass thrown in jail.
I shouldn’t have to tell you people this stuff, really. But it seems this thought never occurred to Michael Alexander Clemmons, Luster Mitchell Lewis, or John Paul Foster II, because they raped an unconscious woman and taped the assault.
Their dark secret unraveled last week when an unidentified person gave Tustin, CA police a 19-minute videotape of the crime. Clemmons, 19, and Lewis, 20 — both football players at Santa Ana College — raped and sexually assaulted an apparently unconscious 18-year-old woman in a variety of ways while Foster, 22, filmed them. Then Foster switched places with one of the others to keep things, you know, fair.
The rape took place in an Orange County hotel last July, and, depending upon who you believe, the victim either passed out during a party, or was drugged. The men are repeatedly seen slapping her, holding her nose closed, and telling her to “wake up!”
Police were able to quickly locate the woman, and notify her of the tape (and, perhaps, of the crime.) The asshats each pleaded not guilty to six counts of rape and sexual assault and are each being held on $100,000 bail.Tags: California, Rape, Santa Ana, videotape
