Former Americus cop on trial for rape

February 25, 2003

Americus-- A former Americus cop is on trial, accused of raping a mentally retarded woman.

Prosecutors say 39-year-old John Allen was on duty the night he raped and sodomized the woman in December 1999. Allen had responded to a domestic disturbance call at the woman's home... and that's where prosecutors say he attacked the woman. He admits having sex with the woman but says it was consensual.
