http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?se...cal&id=8727416A Webster man is in the Harris County Jail, accused of getting a 17-year-old woman drunk and then sexually assaulting her. But what makes this case unique is what finally led to his arrest.
On Thursday, Elric Shawn Millner had his picture taken at the Webster jail when he was arrested. He was smiling. On Friday, he was taken before a judge in probable cause court. The smile was gone.
Millner is 24 years old. He was 22 when documents allege he sexually assaulted a then-17-year-old woman with whom he was involved.
It allegedly happened at the Clear Lake apartment complex where he lived. The woman stated it happened after he gave her a lot of liquor to drink.
"She drank in excess to the point of passing out and having no memory of that night and showed her multiple videos of the suspect and another individual engaging in sexual intercourse with the complainant," said the prosecutor in court.
It went unreported for two years until the woman started dating a man who had been a Marine MP. Prosecutors say he made it his mission to take the case to police, pretending to befriend Millner and making up a story.
"Talked to the old boyfriend about the complainant, pretending he was upset with her," said prosecutor Adam Muldrow.
"And so the defendent did what at that point?" we asked.
"The defendant confirmed the allegations," said Muldrow.
"And he showed him the video?" we asked.
"Yes," he said.
Two weeks after the woman finally went to police, Millner is now in jail. The video he allegedly kept for two years will be evidence.
http://blog.chron.com/newswatch/2012...police-allege/According to court records, the woman told Webster police she was at Millner’s apartment on Aug. 3, 2010, when he gave her so much alcohol to drink that she has no memory of the night.
She said she woke up between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. the next day, and Millner showed her videos he had taken the night before in which he forced her to perform sexual acts, records state.
The woman saw herself in one video vomiting violently and urinating on herself because she was so intoxicated while the defendant laughed at her, according to the complaint filed against Millner by the Harris County District Attorney’s Office.
In another video, the woman said the defendant asked her to have sex with him and she was coherent enough to say no but he allegedly insisted, despite her requests for him to stop, records state.

The victim stayed silent about the assault for over a year, until she confided in her new boyfriend about what happened.
The boyfriend told her what she was describing sounded like a clear case of rape and urged her to go to police.
The boyfriend – who was an MP with the U.S. Marines—then tracked down Millner, struck up a false friendship with him and convinced him to show him the video.
After seeing it, he agreed it appeared to be against his girlfriend’s will and told what he witnessed to authorities.
