By Aaron Humes: A Central Prison trustee, serving out an eleven-year jail term for manslaughter, is accused of breaking his trust with a female prison officer, whom he allegedly forced to touch him sexually.
David Rosalez, 32, is already charged with indecent exposure and common assault upon the officer, 28, but he is now also charged with attempted sexual assault.
Rosalez appeared before Senior Magistrate Aretha Ford and immediately denied the charge, saying, “I did not do it.” As Rosalez is already imprisoned he was not offered bail.
The prison officer told police that on November 16, 2018, she asked him to go buy for her at the snack shop on the compound of the Central Prison at Hattieville.
Ten minutes later he reportedly returned with the items she wanted and then things took a bizarre turn when he asked her if he could touch her vagina.
Despite her refusals and orders for him to stop, he kept insisting and moving closer to where she was sitting behind her desk. He then forced the issue by coming around the desk, allegedly showing her his organ, grabbing her hand and forcing her to touch it. She pulled away and he allegedly zipped back up his pants and left the room, saying he was done.
The case is adjourned for June 12.
