LA man faces rape charges

-A A +A

Crime: Resident could face up to 10 years in prison

By Whitney Jones

A man accused of raping another man while he was asleep is headed to Los Alamos Magistrate Court to face charges next month.
Gregory Thompson, 28, Los Alamos, is charged with two counts of criminal sexual penetration, both third degree felonies; attempted criminal sexual penetration, also a third degree felony; and attempted criminal sexual contact, a fourth degree felony.
He faces 10 1/2 years behind bars and a $20,000 fine if found guilty of all the charges.
The police report regarding the incident tells the following story: On Feb. 12 at 4:21 a.m., Los Alamos Police Cpl. Christopher Ross responded to a domestic call. Once Ross arrived, the undisclosed caller was pacing around the kitchen and seemed to be upset.
According to the victim’s account, he was visiting Thompson to help with some construction. They had begun drinking that evening around 9 p.m. until 2:30 a.m. at which point both went to sleep — Thompson on the couch and the victim in a bed in another room.
The victim alleges around 4 a.m., he was awakened by someone in bed with him.
He also alleges that the person grabbing him began whispering “relax, just let it happen. I won’t tell anyone.”
He identified the voice as Thompson’s and swung his elbow at him, striking him on the face and continued to hit him until Thompson let go.
The report states that the victim alleges Thompson ran into the bathroom to clean his wounds and then fled the property.
Later that morning at 4:12 a.m., the victim received a text from Thompson stating, “(blank) I’m sorry that is all. It was a misunderstanding, we didn’t touch other than you kicking my (expletive) I’m sorry.”
At approximately 6:32 a.m., Sgt. James Rodriguez and Ross interviewed Thompson, who waived his Miranda rights, the report states.
Thompson explained that he had taken several shots of liquor that night and 15-20 minutes after the victim went to sleep, he entered the bedroom, took off his clothes and got into bed with him, the report states.
Thompson said he performed oral sex on the victim while he was asleep.
“Mr. Thompson stated that he never noticed (the victim) to be awake, nor did he hear or feel (the victim) reject what was happening,” the report said.
The report states that Thompson said that at that time he had no reason to believe the victim was awake.
The report states that Thompson then tried to reposition, kiss and arouse the victim, at which point the caller awoke and began striking Thompson.
During the commotion, another person walked in on the scene as Thompson grabbed some clothes and left to his parents’ house.
Thompson said he called the police to report that he had been beaten up, the report states.
The report also states that Thompson did have a cut on his forehead and some swelling around the wound.
After the interview Thompson was placed under arrest and taken to the Los Alamos Detention Center.
He was bonded out by bondsman Jerry Gonzales for an undisclosed amount.
Thompson’s attorney Dan Cron could not be reached for comment.
Thompson’s preliminary hearing, where he will be hearing the charges against him and making a plea, is April 26.

Shame.

This publication is a joke. It always has been, Just like the rest of our community. The "townies" leeching off of the scientific community. Disgusting. And Articles like this are icing on the cake, Ms. Jones.

P.s. I loved another story you wrote in which you concluded 'Whitiney Jones is not related to Rebecca Jones"

Classy... But hey! you can tell your friends you are a real life "reporter!" focus on the Lab for news. Keep the slander to yourself.

Stay classy LA Monitor

Whitney Jones,

What a classless, tasteless, non-ethical article you wrote. If you think this article has a purpose, think again. The people who read your garbage newspaper do not need to read the horrific details about this case. Whitney Jones and your Editor should be embarrassed of themselves. I would like the two of you (Whitney and the Editor) to put yourselves in the shoes of the victim. Do you think you would like the general public to read the gross in-depth details of how you were raped? I doubt it. Have some class. Just because you fill out a freedom of information act release does not mean you put in all the details of the case. This case is meant for a courtroom not the Los Alamos Monitor.

Totally disagree

I totally disagree, the town needs to know about sexual predators in our city.

EXACTLY

Everybody should know about it. That is completely disgusting and everyone should know exactly what he did and where he lives. He is now a criminal and should have no rights.

totally disagree with your totally disgree

Yes, the town needs to be aware of these type of people that live in the area. However, the details of how they commit their crimes do not need to be know to the public. The story would have been fine if it just stated that he was arrest and charged with his crimes. Did it help you to understand that he was a bad person to read the details about his case, or just know that he was charged with the certain crimes. Remember innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, not proven guilty in a smut local newspaper. Like my original post said, put yourself in the victims shoes and tell me that you want all the details of how you where raped in a newspaper. Please respond to that.
