LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) — Prosecutors say a western Wisconsin man accused of sexually assaulting a woman bought her a birth control pill and a sympathy card.
A criminal complaint filed in La Crosse County charges 28-year-old David Pedrazoli of West Salem with second-degree sexual assault. A 21-year-old La Crosse woman says she passed out after drinking with Pedrazoli, then woke up to him assaulting her last December.
The complaint says Pedrazoli left following the assault, then later discouraged the woman from going to the doctor and bought her a “morning after” birth control pill and a sympathy card. The La Crosse Tribune reports the woman also showed investigators apologetic text messages from Pedrazoli.
