Man Allegedly Sexually Assaults Woman, Buys Her Sympathy Card

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.

        Don’t be a jerk, Ann. This crazy stuff happens in all states, even though Minnesota media likes to focus on Wisconsin. Suppose it makes you them feel better about the Vikings.

    Two drunks. Bad judgment by both, but that doesn’t excuse him. Will anyone learn anything from reading about this? Let’s hope so.

        i don’t know about that but considering the population, i have to wonder what the ratio is from sane people to crazies. hahahaha

        but seriously this guy is a cretin and deserves what ever he may get.

  • Ed

    One very real hazard of drinking till you pass out.
    What can be learned here kiddies?

    • max

      What can be learned is that nobody should ever have sex with someone who is passed out because incapacitated people cannot give consent!

  • Victim Du Jour

    Maybe the State of Minnesota should borrow money from China to make a big deal out of people who do stupid things when they drink too much?

    And people wonder why we have a 6 Billion dollar Budget deficit, and then the media will show old ladies in wheel chairs losing programs from budget cuts.

  • Ode to Joy

    I’ve taught my son and my daughters to avoid this situation. Keep an eye on your drink. Go with friends. And a drunk person is not fair game.

  • Paul Bostrom

    There is a ridiculous amount of immaturity here.

  • Shanaynay
