Trial for dating site rape case underway

Testimony was heard on November 4 in the rape trial against Racine local Robert Laypath, who was charged with second-degree sexual assault at the end of 2012, The Journal Times reported.

The 911 call made by the unnamed victim was played in the Racine County court, revealing to the room that the victim was deeply confused, panicky, and unaware of where she was. She met Laypath on a dating site months earlier, and they agreed to meet up for the first time. After breakfast at a Perkins restaurant in Oak Creek, the woman reported feeling strange. She remembered only a few more details before the 911 call hours later.

The woman testified that she did not remember the alleged rape. Laypath told police that the two had sex, but it was consensual.
