Ted Stavens charged with sexual assault.
A Houston man liked to rape a woman with a beer bottle and tape himself doing it, investigators say.

Ted Dwayne Stevens, 46, has been charged with sexual assault, media reports say.

Investigators told reporters that Stevens had an ongoing sexual relationship with the woman. Apparently that relationship wasn't enough, because he started using beer bottles to sexually assault her.

Apparently dozens of tapes exist of the incidents. KPRC says 65 tapes have been confiscated.

Yeah the details arent really laid out so its hard to say. Im sure there are 3 sides to the story. But just becaused he was charged doesnt mean he's guilty. Everyone has their day in court and there will be a lot of questions as to how this happened to an extent where he was able to film it 65 times.

Correction, i don't know if they were living together, but i do know she didn't know what was going on until the last time. As soon as she realized what he was doing thats when she reported it. Stop blaming the victim!

 How do you know that she was completely unaware of having endured 64 sexual assaults? How many drugs and/or how much alcohol would one have to consume to achieve a level of unconsciousness that allows them to be sexually assaulted without regaining consciousness or realizing that they had been assaulted when they finally *did* regain consciousness?

I'm not saying that what he did was NOT rape. I don't know. But your earlier declaration that "RAPE IS RAPE IS RAPE!!!" is an example of the kind of black/white thinking that ignorant people resort to because they are unable to critically analyze a situation. Nothing is that simple, there are shades of gray in almost every situation and in this case there are many unanswered questions which prevent those of us with limited knowledge of the events to properly assess what happened.

So what if she did consume a bunch of alcohol or drugs? Committing a sexual act on someone without their consent is completely wrong and a crime, regardless of what the person has done, how they've acted, what they were wearing, or what part of town they were walking in.

Everybody keeps saying why did she keep coming back? She wasn't "coming back" they lived together. She probably didn't want him to do that and kept thinking that maybe he would stop, maybe he would become the person she fell in love with again. Maybe she had nowhere to go, no family, no friends. Maybe she thought she was stuck and had no choice but to put up with this. We don't know, so please people, stop trying to blame the victim. It's people like you that make victims scared to come out in the first place. This is a very emberassing thing to admit in the first place (which could be another reason she didn't come forward sooner) and then when she does she has people like you guys blaming her!! You are all sick, and RAPE is not always a stranger forcibly having sex with you. Yes, a spouse can also rape you. If you don't want it to happen, and it does, THAT'S RAPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! no matter how you want to sugar coat it. So, if some guy kidnaps me, and rapes me 65 times before i get away, then he must be innocent because i would have got away sooner if i didn't like it. WHAT KIND OF THINKING IS THAT!!?? Seriously!!!

So you're saying is that he has no dick and was thus forced to go all Fatty Arbuckle?

Because "toilet wine" is a homemade concoction enjoyed by many inmates, might his soon-to-be colleagues give him a taste of his own medicine? Hmmm...wonder what would serve as the beer bottle?

Not to say this was the case because we have no idea, but there are women out there who like having beer bottles shoved up their vagina. I know a lot of vanilla people don't understand that, but I just wonder if these charges stem from the authorities not understanding that.

 I'm confident that the HPD Special Victims Unit understands the difference between consent and kink.

I am confused. The only thing I can figure here, is that she was unconscious on a number of occasions, or perhaps she is a minor relative that couldn't get away. Otherwise I don't get it.

That's what I was wondering. Did she complain, or not? Not enough info in this article. =/

I have to say bullshit on these charges, how does someone rape you dozens of separate times on video? She gives a bad name to real victims

   Have you had access to the actual case filed?  If not, you're speculating like all of us here, myself included.  There is no one type of "real" victim -- many victims have been raped by someone they were acquainted with or romantically involved with, including spouses in physically/emotionally abusive marriages. 

   Until more facts are published,  we don't know if Stevens drugged her or intimidated her with physical or emotional abuse prior to the assaults.  What we do know is that the police, viewing the tapes, believe that these were sexual assaults -- that means the victim was either unconscious, was physically restrained, or clearly did not appear in any way to be consenting to the act.

   For all that any of us know, she may have only realized what he was doing to her when she discovered these tapes and watched them.  When more of the facts of the case gets published, the background of the assaults will be more clear.

  As I said previous, we're all speculating here, because we don't have access to the criminal report. There is no mention of her being unconscious at the time (something that has occurred in similar cases) but she does make it clear that Stevens forced her.  An excerpt from an article below:

   http://www.chron.com/news/hous...

 "The woman, with whom Stevens had a sexual relationship, told authorities he forced her to use a beer bottle during sex on a number of occasions, according to a complaint filed by the Harris County District Attorney's Office.A deputy with the Harris County Sheriff's Office Special Victims Unit obtained a court order to collect video evidence of the assaults, records state. The deputy examined the clips and found that about 65 of them showed Stevens sexually assaulting the woman."

  The deputy made the determination that 65 of the  tapes showed evidence that sexual assaults were being perpetrated.  So you can doubt Stevens, or you can doubt this woman and the deputy who watched these clips, and the investigators and D.A.'s office who felt there was sufficient evidence to arrest and charge him.

 Sexual contact should be consensual. If she didn't consent to having a bottle put inside of her, she is a real victim, regardless of the number of times she was assaulted.

kimbev69

So if did not consent and went back 64 more times? Why because she thought he wouldnt do it again

Or maybe she is the victim of abuse and did not know how to end the cycle. I had a boyfriend once that threatened to kill my brother if I ever left him.  I left him anyway and told him murder would be on his head. He was found with a shotgun at my brothers bus stop the next day. He did not get arrested and harrassed me until one of my uncles took matters into his own hands. Imagine if I had caved and stayed so that he didn't hurt my brother? I'd be another statistic and you would all be blaming me for being too weak to stop the abuse. If he had killed my brother everyone would blame me for not staying. It is a no win situation for women that get linked up with abusive jerks and my opinion that abusers deserve the death penalty.

Why would you claim that you think she's lying when the police have already said they watched the videos and found 65 that featured sexual assault?

This is the story I found with the most information.

http://www.click2houston.com/n...

It says they had a sexual relationship so I'm thinking they didn't live together. So unless she was knocked out or drugged and had no idea of the beer assaults, her story doesn't add up.

kimbev69

I am ashamed to say that there are women who cry rape who are not, maybe he didnt give her whatever was agreed upon ie drugs, alcohol, money? And she cried foul

NY_Mommy

I have to agree with you. this makes no sense. Of course it doesn't help that we have minimal info.

Kim, even if she went back a million times a non-consensual sexual assault is still a non-consensual sexual assault. You can't rape your way to not being a rapist.

kimbev69

We are talking 65 times dude seriously!!! Are you daft? Why would she go back again and again and again and so on and so on

 If someone wants to beat sexual assault charges with you on the jury, I guess they should just continue sexually assaulting the person. How many times do they have to assault the person before you decide the person isn't guilty?

"Look your honor, I also want to say he raped me every time he used an extra finger...that was usually on Thursday, his bowling night."   "So I figured it up and that adds up to 342 times, which includes the 3 weeks I went back to Iowa to visit my family."

As the story reads now, the case against him is insane and the result of some Feminist D.A. who thinks any type of sex between a man and a woman can be turned into a rape charge, by any female, after any period of time, if they have a whim to do so.

Pull your head out of your ass. Or leave it there, if it'll muffle the expression of any further "thoughts."

There are no shortages of Feminist DA's.  Just proportionally, women are far less likely to be one.  Nancy Grace for instance.Reading reports from women judges and DAs often come off as mind numbingly bizarre.  To get to that position, they either do (or feel like they do) have to try harder, push harder, convict more, to get ahead.  Even if true, it's still an egregious thing to sink so low.  Getting ahead in a male dominated field should not outweigh doing the right thing.  (Notice I didn't say Justice)

Kylejack

If you'll read the linked stories, you'll see that a deputy with the Special Victims Unit (not "some feminist DA") reviewed the tapes and found 65 that appeared to depict non-consensual sexual assaults.

The bottom line is there are sick, weird people out there who force nothing on other people.  If the woman was rendered unconscious or otherwise threatened into doing this, it is still rape.  In this case, she is pretty dumb and certainly with low self esteem.  On the other hand, regardless of what the officer's "take" of the video is...  Determining whether she was willing is pretty easy to determine.  Ask her.  It's not against the law to be freaky...

What you will not read is that accuser is his ex wife

    Direct evidence trumps any prior relationship that the victim had with the perpetrator.  the fact that she had previously consented to sex with him does not mean that he could not have raped her. 

   It is illegal to rape your spouse.  There is direct evidence (the tapes) that depicts non consensual sex.  And, very likely, the police who actually watched those tapes can properly determine if a sex act is a rape.

"You're going to take this beer bottle on video or I'm going to stop giving you money!"

Works like a charm every time.

65 times?  If she was trying to get away, she wasn't trying hard enough.  Innocent.

Eliot C. Hall

Was she tied up? 65 tapes covering multiple incidents involving the same victim? If a man commits a date rape he should be reported and prosecuted but if the woman comes back for another date it's hard to imagine she's very upset. Many men accused of child abuse are really just going through a bad divorce.

TomDaddy

Eliot, you are right. The woman and this man are going through a divorce.

While I would have to agree that from our viewpoint it makes no sense that the victim remained in this relationship, when we look at the word "rape" defined we see that it is "a criminal offense defined in most states as forcible sexual relations with a person against that person's will.Rape is the commission of unlawful sexual intercourse or unlawful sexual intrusion." Unfortunately we only have news articles to go by and I assume that the police have enough evidence of --forced-- sexual activity on tape to accuse him of these crimes. We don't know what was going on in that relationship or in what sick, psycho way he could have been threatening her, and I hope as we obtain more information on this case we can learn to understand why she made the choice to keep returning. It is my strong belief that she was being threatened or forced into coming back.

Police have arrested many people with no evidence only to make them spend tons to defend themselves, the little girl riley who was abducted off her couch and raped and murdered yet dad was in prison, here they never even checked the dna the had for over a yr, a 12 yr old named michael fOr the stabbing death of his sister again dna on a vagrants sweater the was knocking on doors that night and this boy and two friends spent over a yr in jail

Kylejack

You're blaming the victim? How many years should she do in jail for being sexually assaulted?

Tim

Kyle wins the Self-Righteous Idiot of the Day Award!  Eliot asked a logical question.  If a woman kept coming back again and again and I mean again...and each of those times this action takes place, it's obviously consensual.

It goes to the heart of it being a crime or something the woman had decided after 65 times is rape.

But again, it's not about facts with you Leftists.  It's all about posing as if you are superior to everyone else by uttering tired platitudes.

Normally I agree, rape is rape. But if this represents 65 different occasions and she was conscious and aware of of more than one, and she was not being controlled him 24 hours a day, I have to wonder...was it rape, or was she just mad he taped it?

Teri Roe

Tim, you are ignorant and i feel sorry for any woman that has messed with you and your sick way of thinking. I don't care if she went back a million times, RAPE IS RAPE IS RAPE!!! If she says no, and it still happens thats RAPE! She could have had a mental condition, not understood what was going on, she could have felt alone or scared and thought she had nobody else to turn to, you just don't know. God, men like you terrify me

 Hey Mole, perhaps re-read what I said. It was about him not having a right to commit a sexual assault, not his right to free speech. I made no comment on free speech.

Well usually I agree with you but you are dead wrong here. Tim the others of his ilk have every right to spew their foul nuggets o' wisdom. It's call the Right to Free Speech, protected under the First Amendment.

She was unaware that he was violating here with the beer bottle. She was unconscious at the time.

 Hi Tim,You don't have a right to commit a sexual act on someone without their consent even if you've done it many times before, and even if they come over to your house 65 times.

Yeah Kyle she hadn't been assaulted the first 64 times, she figured it out on the 65th time moron
