The Oregon Supreme Court makes a ruling that could help the defense team in a local rape case. Thomas Bray, 38, a former Central Oregon Community College instructor, is accused of assaulting and raping a woman he met on Match.com. The alleged rape happened in Bend in February 2011. Thursday’s Oregon Supreme Court ruling would allow the defense team to access the Internet search records of the 24 year old woman. According to an article in the Bulletin, the defense lawyers say the woman was uncertain about what happened and conducted an internet search to see what the legal definition of rape was before she reported it to police.
