No means no to the majority of us, but a young rapist in Idaho, apparently, only acknowledges a “hard no.”
Austin Michael Brown, 22, was arrested on a felony rape charge, and will now go to court later this month after claiming the victim he raped didn’t give him a “hard no,” leading him to believe she consented to the rape, The Independent reports.
The unidentified victim arrived at Brown’s home in June when he carried her upstairs, took off her clothes, and had sex with her without her consent.
She reportedly told Brown to stop multiple times, but he held her down and continued the sexual act.
The alleged rapist told police that he thought the act was consensual, and police said that at first, he denied raping the woman, then later, admitted to it.
Brown, who is now facing a felony rape charge, is set to appear in court on Sept. 21.
This rapist obviously knew that the woman didn’t agree to have sex with him, and instead of listening to her, he continued his attack and fulfilled his own selfish sexual desires.
