Victim testifies about alleged rape

Guam - Almost seven years have passed since the alleged rape, but the victim in the Francis Jude Taitano trial says she remembers it like it was yesterday.

During her testimony today, she told the court that she was sleeping in the same bed as Taitano and his wife when he called her outside to the patio and asked her to touch his private parts. The two then went outside where she alleges Taitano told her to watch him and his wife have sex. Because Taitano's wife refused him, Taitano raped her with her pajamas still on and his wife asleep in the same bed.

When asked why she didn't report the incident sooner, the alleged victim says that she didn't think anyone would care.

During cross examination however, the victim reports the bedroom door was still open and that there were other relatives sleeping in the next room.
