Police interviews released in officer rape case

For the first time, we are hearing from the woman accusing a Boynton Beach police officer of raping her on the hood of his patrol car.

"He made me get out of the car, and he raped me, and then he took me back as if nothing happened," the victim said in a recorded police interview.

Officer Stephen Maiorino's rape trial starts on Friday with jury selection.

The woman described to investigators the officer putting a gun to her head and forcing her into sex during the incident in October of last year.

"I was scared. I didn't know what to do. Cops can arrest you for anything. I was afraid. And he decided after the oral sex to pull the gun out and forced me to have sex with him," the victim said.

Investigators say the Boynton Beach officer was supposed to be giving the victim a ride after her friend was arrested for DUI last October. But she says he made her perform oral sex in the police department parking lot, then took her to a nearby field.

"I thought I was going to die. I thought I was going to get raped and killed and that was it," the victim told detectives.

Investigators say they later found a condom the officer used and tossed into the bushes.

They say the victim's DNA was on the condom.

When detectives asked the police officer about what happened, he opted not to speak without an attorney.

"Bad guy lawyers up like he has something to hide. I have nothing to hide," officer Maiorino said.

The officer's attorney says the sex was consensual.

Maiorino has remained behind bars with no bond awaiting his trial.
