The accused COCC teacher, Thomas Bray's multiple rape trial will be decided by Judge Stephen Tiktin en lieu of a jury.
Our news partner, News Channel 21 reports that one unidentified alleged victim, a 22- year old woman told the judge that Bray was her anatomy teacher at COCC and went with him and others out for drinks after a mid-term; then went alone with him to his apartment. She says she had sex with Bray, but was so intoxicated that she didn't remember it.
An ex-girlfriend of Brays, who is only known as Ashley, spoke with News Channel 21 to defend him, saying that was not the man she knew. “I literally gasped and say “no way.’ I go ‘No, no way.” But another young Bend woman who met Bray online on “Match.com” says after meeting him face to face and having drinks in a downtown bistro, the pair went back to his apartment where the woman was subject to hours of sexual abuse.
The trial resumes Wednesday.
