A Utah man who has been charged with one count of first-degree felony rape told a court that he had sex with his unconscious female neighbor because “he was trying to save her life.”
Rodger William Kelly, 50, told police he inserted his penis inside the unconscious 29-year-old woman on May 19 in an effort to warm her up.
"He said he did place it inside of her to try and get her temperature up," according to a police statement.
Kelly said after he found the woman passed out in front of her apartment, he brought her in his house, changed her clothes and put her on his bed. He then tried to raise her temperature with intercourse. Kelly was giving her CPR when police arrived in response to an unconscious person call, The Salt Lake Tribune reported.
The woman told police she had bruising on her pelvic and upper thighs and said she thought it was possible she was raped. A rape kit could not be completed because the woman’s vaginal area was cleaned while she was sedated.
Kelly told police that the two had slept together in the past but that the woman had told him she did not want to have sex with him again.
