“I thought it was really weird the guy thought I was raping the girl,” Turner told police, according to KPIX-TV.
He said, “My intentions were not to rape a girl. I was just trying to hook up with a girl.”
Prosecutors and the victim herself ardently disagreed with Turner's account.
“To sit under oath and inform all of us, that yes I wanted it, yes I permitted it, and that you are the true victim attacked by guys for reasons unknown to you is sick, is demented, is selfish, is stupid,” the victim wrote. “It shows that you were willing to go to any length to discredit me, invalidate me, and explain why it was okay to hurt me.”
Photos taken after the assault and obtained this weekend by NBC News show Turner’s face covered in dirt, his hands red and marked. A police report reviewed by this news organization illustrates law enforcement characterized the dirt on his face and shirt “as if he had been in a physical struggle.”
Officers interviewed Turner after reading him his Miranda rights.
At one point, he said, “She seemed to enjoy it.”
An officer asked, according to KPIX-TV, “The decision to make out, was that a mutual thing?”
“Mmm hmm,” Turner replied.
The officer also asks, “At what point does she stop responding?”
“Well, we didn’t kiss the entire time,” Turner replied, before trailing off.
Turner later told the court he was too drunk to know that the woman was unconscious during his encounter with her.
Turner must return to the Dayton-area in coming days to serve probation and register as a sex offender, according to his transfer agreement. On Saturday, local and national media and a police presence remained outside the home his parents now own in Sugarcreek Twp.
