Man faces sexual assault charge after allegedly raping woman

AUSTIN - A 41-year-old man has been charged with sexual assault after he allegedly raped a woman while he was at her home in March of 2015. 

According to a warrant for Adam Rave's arrest, he went to the home of a woman that he has been in an on-again off-again relationship with for about two years. According to the affidavit, the two had previously agreed that in any future sexual act, the suspect would have to actively ask for "her permission in each step in the progression of sexual contact, up to and including sexual intercourse." This was due to two previous unreported incidents where the victim accused the suspect of sexually assaulting her.

On the night of the reported incident, the two went to her bed where he started kissing her, "conducting himself as agreed by asking her permission to do so," the affidavit said. Then, the alleged victim told police he started touching her, to which she said, "No." He then allegedly continued, and raped her. She continued to tell him to stop, according to the affidavit.

In January of 2016, the affidavit states that the alleged victim "finally felt strong enough to report" the alleged rape.

When she spoke with police, she provided an email in which Rave repeatedly says he was sorry for raping her. In the email, he also "swears to never rape anyone ever again," the affidavit said.

She also gave police two audio recordings in which Rave admits to raping her.

When police contacted him in September 2016, Rave "freely denied sexually assaulting the victim on the day of the incident," the affidavit said.

Rave faces a charge of sexual assault, a second degree felony. He is not in custody according to online records with the Travis County Jail.
