A 36-year-old Atlanta man who faked being gay to gain a lesbian’s trust has been indicted for assaulting her.
Taurence Callagain met the lady in 2015 at a travel station on the west side of the city. The two in the long run traded numbers in the wake of riding a similar train, as indicated by an announcement from the Fulton County District Attorney’s office.
“The injured individual is a lesbian and has a female partner who she was involved with when she met the respondent,” the office said. “Callagain drove the unfortunate casualty to accept he was gay, so she was under the feeling that their relationship was carefully dispassionate.”
Weeks Later, after the unfortunate casualty missed the last transport of the night, Callagain offered to drive her home, as per the DA’s office. He at that point asserted that he expected to stop at his home to get cannabis, and the injured individual tailed him into his home.
“By then, the injured individual idea they were heading off to Callagain’s room to smoke maryjane when he started to choke her and continued to fiercely assault her,” the DA’s office expressed.
“During the assault, Callagain told the person in question if she battled or shouted, ‘I will get my young men to come in and hold you down.'”
After the assault, the injured individual got away and ran 3 miles in the night to her home. She later went to a medical clinic to look for treatment and called police.
Callagain, who is confronting a different exasperated attack case in the area, asserted at his preliminary that the experience was consensual. His conviction was reported Tuesday, February 25. A sentencing date has not been set.
In Georgia, an assault conviction can convey a sentence of 25 years in jail to capital punishment.
