Bond set for two men accused of raping teen, posting it on Snapchat
MASON, Ohio (FOX19) - Two men accused of raping an intoxicated and unconscious 17-year-old girl and posting it on Snapchat were arraigned Wednesday afternoon.
The state asked for $100,000 bond each for Quentin Smith and Alexander Wood but the judge set bond at $25,000 for each.
Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell says the rape allegedly occurred at the Mason Inn in April.
Court documents show Smith and Wood, both 18, are each charged with one count of rape, one count of sexual battery, one count of use of a minor in nude material or performance and three counts of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor.
Prosecutors say Wood took advantage of the teen who was impaired and not able to consent or resist.
Fornshell said the victim drank an entire bottle of Parrot Bay rum, was vomiting and in and out of consciousness.
“This particular victim didn’t have any idea the extent of what had happened because she was passed out. During the course of the evening, two of the two defendants were sending out Snapchat photographs that were showing her passed out and being sexually assaulted," he said.
Since the alleged rape, Assistant Prosecutor Kirsten Brandt says Wood has been in contact with the victim.
“The defendant was calling the victim on the phone. He was also contacting her on social media," Brandt said.
The judge told Wood he cannot have contact with the witness or any other minors, except family members.
Smith was also ordered to have no contact with minors and would be on electronic monitoring if released.
Dominic Cboins, also 18, is charged with one count of rape and one count of sexual battery, according to the documents.
Court records say Cboins is scheduled to be arraigned at 8:30 a.m. on Nov. 22.
