This took place in my home the weekend of the grand opening of Q. The attack took place while the victim was a guest in my home and while I was asleep in another room.
The attacker/rapist was my then husband of ten years — Richard L. Schmitt. As soon as it became clear what had happened I threw him out out of the house and out of my life.
State v. Richard Schmitt (12-1-05748-2):
“On October 21, 2012, Schmitt was charged with one count of Assault in the Second Degree with Intent to Commit Rape in the Second Degree after it was reported to the Bellevue Police Department that he had forcibly penetrated the anus of a male acquaintance with his penis. According to the Certification for Determination of Probable Cause, the victim was under the influence of alcohol and sleeping medication and awoke to find Schmitt penetrating his anus with his penis, and he pushed Schmitt away. On April 30, 2013, the original charge against Schmitt was amended to Assault in the Second Degree with Sexual Motivation and an additional charge of Rape in the Second Degree was added. On October 10, 2013, Schmitt pled guilty to one charge of Assault in the Third Degree, and on October 25, 2013, he was sentenced to 3 months of work release. He will not have to register as a sex offender. This case took approximately 12 months to reach a resolution, with 9 continuances between filing and sentencing.”
Thanks to Jerry at Fun4Me for finding this.
Oh, and this is the face of a rapist — if you live in Seattle, avoid him:
