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.”
