Jorge De Souza Abrahao was arrested late last week after a woman complained that the Hudson, Massachusetts man raped her as she slept at her boyfriend’s apartment. The defendant is a relative of the victim’s boyfriend. The woman told police that she awoke to find Abrahao in bed with her, violating her as she slept. She pushed him off and called the police. The police obtained a search warrant for Abrahao’s apartment. He was later found at his place of employment in Framingham where he was arrested. Abrahao was Charged with Rape and held on five thousand dollars in the Marlborough District Court. The case will be presented to a grand jury for indictment and prosecution in the Middlesex County Superior Court in Woburn.
The nature of the alleged rape in this case is not detailed by this article. Rape in Massachusetts is committed when there is any non-consensual penetration of a woman’s vagina by a finger, mouth, penis or other object. It can also occur when a woman is forced to perform oral sex on the defendant. While reading this article I wonder what exactly did the woman say Abrahao was doing to her. How did he manage to enter her home and bed undetected and then engage in this act. I would think that if the facts of this case were as egregious as the article seems to indicate then a bail much higher than five thousand dollars would have been imposed.
