Woman Says Deputy Raped Her in Courthouse

UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (CN) - A woman claims in court that a sheriff's deputy raped her for 30 minutes in a courthouse holding cell while she was waiting to go to court.

The 34-year-old woman, P.R., sued Maryland and Prince George's County Deputy Sheriff Lamar McIntyre in Prince George's County Court.

She claims Reaves raped her on June 19 this year while she was detained at the Prince George's County Courthouse.

"Deputy Sheriff Lamar McIntyre of the Prince George's County Sheriff's Office raped her and made (her) perform oral sex and virginal [sic] sex without a condom in a cell at the courthouse for 30 minutes," the complaint states.

"Deputy Sheriff McIntyre took (her) into a holding cell away from everyone else.

"Deputy Sheriff McIntyre made (her) get naked and told her to 'suck my dick' ...

"(The plaintiff) felt that she had no choice but to comply with Deputy Sheriff McIntyre demands as he was a sheriff, in full uniform, and she was incarcerated. While (she) Reaves was performing oral sex on Deputy Sheriff McIntyre he stated, 'this head is the bomb' and 'I love this head.'"

P.R. claims McIntyre then forced her to have intercourse without a condom while he "used his right hand to slap her buttocks extremely hard."

The complaint states: "During the time that Deputy Sheriff McIntyre was having nonconsensual sex with (her), he was interrupted two times by radio calls. He just pulled his pants up and left the cell. Each time he told her to not to put her clothes back on. When he would come back to the cell he would begin having sex with (her) again."

After raping her for 30 minutes, P.R. says, McIntyre forced her to remain on all fours so he could take pictures of her naked body with his camera phone.

"Deputy Sheriff McIntyre then took (her) Reaves back to the court room for her afternoon court appearance as if nothing ever happened," the complaint states.

She says she reported the rape when she was returned to jail, and McIntyre "'admitted his involvement in the felony and has been indicted" on multiple charges of sexual assault.

She says the rape was "malicious and sadistic."

She demands $15 million in damages and punitive damages for excessive force, assault, battery, civil rights violations, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

She is represented by Jimmy Bell of Oxon Hill, Md.
