Federal Marshal Accused Of Raping Woman At Gun Point
April 22, 2010
Washington (ChattahBox) – An air marshal has been accused of raping a woman at gunpoint in a Seattle hotel room during a layover in the city.
According to the complaint, a 24-year-old escort arrived at the room at the request of Lecheton “Omar” Settles, a 30-year-old federal air marshal. She had been called to provide an erotic massage and lingerie dance as part of a private package.
When she arrived she went to the bathroom to change. When she came out, she alleged Settles was standing naked with his badge around his neck, pointing his gun at her.
Her ordered her onto the bed and raped her for ten minutes using a condom. He then told her to get dressed while he placed a fake call to his “sergeant”, and said the man had told him to let her go without charge. What the charge was allegedly for has not been confirmed.
The woman immediately reported the incident with the police, and Settles was arrested.
He claims he had no sexual contact with her, but when police told him she had described his genitals, which were completely shaved, he changed his story to say he had his pants down, but had not raped her.
He is being held on $250,000 bond on charged of first degree rape.
