Female Private Testifies Superior Officer Raped Her

A female private with the Army Reserve has testified she had consensual sex with a superior officer many times before he raped her.

The testimony was released at a pretrial hearing to determine if
Master Sergeant Roland Perez should face a court-martial. Perez
also is accused of mistreatment of a female soldier subject to his
orders.

The rape is alleged to have occurred in October, about a week
after Perez's wife confronted the alleged victim. The woman's name
was --not-- released.

She says Perez sent her a text message asking her to come to his office. She says Perez raped her after she refused to resume the relationship. Some witnesses testified the woman was manipulative and questioned her trustworthiness.

Closing arguments are scheduled for Wednesday
