By BBN Staff: The alleged rape victim of Magistrate Norman Rodriguez, is making further claims that Rodriguez intimidated her before the trial.
Rodriguez’s alleged victim told the media that despite the pending rape charge against him, Rodriguez showed up to her mother’s house on Sunday to have lunch.
She went on to say that she went to the police to find out what could be done about him coming around her family, but the officers simply read her the laws surrounding the matter and did not offer any further assistance.
Rodriguez is scheduled to appear before Chief Magistrate Ann Marie Smith this morning, to answer to charges of Rape, which was allegedly committed in April. The case has caused much controversy, because the Director of Public Prosecutions took three weeks before ordering that Rodriguez be charged.
The case is likely to have even more problems at trial, due to the amount of publicity the case has gotten on social media.
