WASHINGTON COUNTY, Ohio (WTAP) - The Washington County Sheriff's Office says a man named Mark Workman is charged with rape. Deputies say the victim is someone close to him.
The investigation started with a domestic violence complaint earlier January on the 8th. As the investigation continued, the victim told detectives that earlier in the day, she told Mark Workman she did not want to have intercourse. She told detectives that he ignored her crying and raped her. She also told him to stop multiple times.
Mark Workman was then brought in for an interview with detectives the next day on January 9, 2020. They say he initially denied it, but then he admitted the victim was telling the truth.
