Rape Victim Identifies Marine as Assailant

From Times Wire Reports

In tearful testimony during a trial involving four U.S. Marines, a Philippine woman identified the serviceman who allegedly raped her.

The 22-year-old woman said she was attacked Nov. 1 by Lance Cpl. Daniel Smith as Lance Cpls. Keith Silkwood and Dominic Duplantis and Staff Sgt. Chad Carpentier cheered him on.

The rape charges are punishable by up to 40 years in prison, and the judge has entered not-guilty pleas for the four. Defense lawyers say Smith had consensual sex with the woman.
