Florida college student admits rape on police-recorded call: ‘I do remember you saying no’

Published

A University of Central Florida (UCF) student reportedly admitted that he raped a fellow student on a telephone call that was recorded by police.

A UCF police affidavit obtained by Knight News said that 21-year-old Jamie Polanco was arrested after he apologized to the victim on the recorded call.

“Yeah, I am so sorry. I don’t know what was going through my head,” Polanco told the victim, according to the affidavit. “I guess I just really wanted to have sex.”

The victim told police that the sexual assault occurred on June 10 while watching a basketball game in Polanco’s apartment.

The victim said that Polanco pulled their shorts down and forced their legs apart. Even though the victim told Polanco that they did not want to have sex multiple times, he raped the victim while evading kicks, the affidavit said.

After the assault, Polanco walked the victim back to their apartment.

Police set up a recorded call between the victim and Polanco after being notified of the alleged assault.

During the call, Polanco expressed remorse for the rape.

“I can’t blame the alcohol because it was a small little factor. I’m in shock that I did that,” he said. “I can’t explain myself. I do remember having sex and I do remember you saying no.”

Polanco was arrested later that evening. He is being held on $10,000 bond.

Senate GOP will be accessories to obstruction if they shoot down a move by Justice Roberts to call witnesses: Ex-prosecutor

On Monday, former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner said that Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) must motion for Chief Justice John Roberts to call witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial — and that if Senate Republicans vote down this decision, they will be "accessories" to obstruction of justice.

Schiff must make a motion to CJ Roberts for witnesses. As I’ve been saying all along, if Roberts grants the motion for witnesses (he will) & the Rs vote to overrule him (they might) that will (de facto) be obstruction of justice & accessory after the fact. https://t.co/yQfUTga7gd

Trump already planning his victory lap for impeachment acquittal: report

Published

President Donald Trump is already planning his victory lap for his presumed acquittal in the Senate impeachment trial.

The president and his aides haven't agreed on a plan yet, and it's not clear that new revelations from John Bolton's upcoming book will force Republican senators to agree to witness testimony, but they're discussing how he should celebrate once the trial ends, reported Politico.

“The president is giving a lot of thought to where he goes when he is acquitted and vindicated,” a senior administration official told the website. “This isn’t a one-and-done moment. This will be a sustained exit from a long dreary impeachment process and a great reset to 2020 — not just the 2020 reelection but the 2020 domestic and international arena.”
