Rape trail gets underway

The trial of a Terre Haute man got underway Monday afternoon.  24 year old Rakim Marquis Hughes faces 5 felonies, including attempted rape.

Hughes faces charges of attempted rape, criminal deviate conduct, intimidation, criminal confinement and strangulation.  He’s also charged as a repeat sex offender

The victim claims she went to the Days Inn to see a friend, and that’s when she came into contact with Hughes.  After her friend left, she says Hughes made advances towards her that she refused. 

The defense painted a much different picture.  Attorney Paul Jungers says he’ll point to a lack of physical evidence by the state, no knife, no rape kit, no DNA, no fingerprints… only the victim’s statement.
