Trent Davis, 18, of Mangum, was arrested Friday and charged with the rape of a 13-year old girl last weekend at a party in Blair. Davis is the teen who was driving the vehicle in 2008 that crashed, resulting in the death of another 13-year-old girl near Mangum.
In an affidavit released by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, prosecutors say that Davis forcibly raped the girl in his mother's pickup truck at a rural home near Blair where a party was going on inside.
Davis was booked Friday on first-degree rape by force or fear, punishable in Oklahoma by death or imprisonment for not less than five years. An alternative charge of first-degree rape of a minor under the age of 14 was also filed, which carries the same potential punishment.
The alleged victim told law enforcement that she had known Davis for about six months, and that they went to the party together on June 11. While at the party, the girl said that Davis asked her to go with him to the pickup to get something, and while at the truck talking, they began kissing. She said when Davis tried to do more, she started screaming at him to stop, but he wouldn’t. She said Davis hit her twice in the face, and then raped her in the cab of the truck.
The girl did admit to sending Davis nude pictures of herself by cell phone, but said he never asked her how old she was. She said she assumed he knew she was only 13, but Davis told investigators that she had told him she was 18 or 19.
Witnesses said both were drinking beer at the party.
Investigators reported that the alleged victim had dried blood in the corners of her mouth and redness and swelling above her right eye. She was examined and treated that evening at Jackson County Memorial Hospital in Altus.
During an interview with investigators Monday, Davis admitted to most of the alleged victim's story except he said the sex was consensual and denied hitting her.
Iinvestigators served a search warrant on Davis' pickup truck in Mangum Tuesday and recovered hairs the same color as the victim’s from the floorboard of the passenger side, as well as biological evidence from the passenger seat and from a T-shirt in the back seat of the truck.
After the 2008 traffic accident in which Davis was driving, and passenger 13-year-old Sierra Cook was killed, he received a five-year deferred sentence after pleading guilty to felony manslaughter. Davis was 16 and had a blood alcohol level of .08 at the time.
District Attorney John Wampler said on Friday that the state will likely file a motion next week to accelerate Davis' deferred sentence on the manslaughter charges.
