Rape Suspect Blames Alcohol For His Behavior
Detectives say he tried to blame it on the alcohol.
But say they doubt it was the booze that led a Santa Fe College student to sexually assault two women at a house party.
Alachua County Sheriff's detectives say 20-year-old Michael Parker said he had at least 20 alcoholic drinks before he assaulted the women at a party at the Greens at West End Apartments.
Witnesses say Parker came to the party with friends, but was escorted out when he started making passes at women. However, Parker came back and broke into the home.
That's when police say he found two women passed out inside...and assaulted them.
Detectives say that Parker expressed regret and remorse, telling police that his "life was ruined" because of "one stupid mistake."
Parker is in jail on a $75 thousand dollar bond. He is charged with two counts of sexual assault and one count of burglary.
