On January 1, 2013 officers from the 2nd District responded to a radio run at 0356 hours for a Criminal Assault. Once on the scene officers located the Complainant (name redacted) who advised that she was sexually assaulted. Medical assistance arrived on the scene and transported the Complainant to the Washington Hospital center. The officers requested the assistance of the Sexual Assault Unit. Detectives Griffin and Johnson responded to 1725 Rhode Island Avenue, NW (Saint Matthews Cathedral) and was met by Ofc Thompson. Ofc Thompson directed the detectives to the parking garage entrance (where the gate is located) where the Complainant stated that the assault occurred.
While on the scene, Ofc Thompson informed the detectives that Ofc Denton was flagged down by the witness who stated that IT had called 911 for a woman who was raped. While on the scene, Ofc Thompson called Ofc Denton and obtained the telephone number of the witness. Ofc Thomspon telephoned the witness and requested that IT respond back to the scene to meet with the detectives. The witness stated that IT was walking in the 1700 block of Rhode Island, NW toward Connecticut Avenue, NW. The witness stated that as IT was walking past the driveway of Saint Matthews Cathedral, IT could hear someone cry out, “help”. The witness stated that IT walked down into the garage area, where IT located the Complainant lying on the ground with her head near the gate and her dress pulled over her waist. The Complainant provided the witness with the name “Nick” as the person who sexually assaulted her.

Detectives Griffin and Johnson responded to Washington Hospital Center and interviewed the Complainant. The Complainant was intoxicated and had an odor of alcohol emanating from her breath during the interview. The Complainant reported that she went to the Midtown Club by herself to celebrate the New Year. The Complainant reported that she went to the Midtown Club by herself to celebrate the New Year. The Complainant stated that she was there for approximately one hour, during which time she bumped into the Defendants (Nicholas Schultz and Matthew Maldonado), who was inside the club. The Complainant stated that she knew both of the Defendants from the Lloyd Irvin Martial Arts Academy, where she was an employee and a current student. The Complainant stated that she thought she and the defendants were walking to the Defendant’s car but then they ended up in the garage where she was sexually assaulted. The Complainant stated that she thought that they were going to the home of one of the Martial Arts Academy instructors, where she would be able to sleep.
The Complainant stated that once in the garage area, Defendant Schultz forced her to the ground and that while on her knees, he placed his penis in her mouth. The Complainant stated that while on the ground, Defendant Schultz had vaginal intercourse with her. The Complainant described the events by stating Defendant Schultz used his “private parts” to smack her across her face and also stuck his “private parts” in her “private area” and in her mouth. The Complainant stated that during the course of the sexual assault she asked Defendant Schultz to stop. However, Defendant Schultz continued to have sexual intercourse with her against her will and without her permission. During the sexual assault, the Complainant sustained injuries to her face, arms, hands and knees. The Complainant stated that Defendant Schultz did not use a condom and she does not know if he ejaculated. The Complainant stated that after the assault, Defendant Schultz told her, “I’m sorry. I’m a sick bastard.” The Complainant stated that she does not recall if Defendant Maldonado had sexual intercourse with her. The Complainant does recall that Defendant Maldonado walked into the garage with her and Defendant Schultz and that he left the garage area before Defendant Schultz.
Addition information was discovered pertaining to the sexual assault of the Complainant. Further investigation revealed that the Complainant along with Defendants Schultz and Maldonado all walked into the garage driveway together. The garage driveway is located adjacent to 1725 Rhode Island Avenue, NW but is attached to the building located at 1717 Rhode Island Ave. NW. A security surveillance camera affixed to the ceiling captured the three of them as they walked into the garage driveway and out of the public’s view. The Complainant appeared to be staggering as defendant Maldonado walked next to her into the area with his arm around her. Defendant Maldonado appeared to be holding the Complainant up. Once inside of the location, Defendants Schultz and Maldonado then walked the Complainant to the far right corner of the garage driveway and positioned themselves and the Complainant next to the garage entrance gate.
While standing next to the gate, Defendant Maldonado stood behind the Complainant and began to undo his pants. Defendant Maldonado then pulled his pants down, grabbed the Complainant around her waist and began to have sexual intercourse with the Complainant. While Defendant Maldonado was engaging in sexual intercourse with the Complainant, Defendant Schultz began to undo his pants. Defendant Schultz then grabbed the Complainant by her hair and forced her head down to his crotch area to perform oral sex on him. This activity continued on for several minutes, after which Defendant Maldonado disengaged. The Complainant then fell to the ground, at which time Defendant Maldonado pulled his pants up and walked away, leaving Defendant Schultz and the Complainant at the location.
After defendant Maldonado’s departure, defendant Schultz stayed behind and continued to force the Complainant to perform oral sex. The Complainant then fell to her knees, at which time defendant Schultz also got on his knees, positioned himself behind the Complainant and began to have sexual intercourse with her while grabbing and holding the Complainant by her waist. While continuing to engage in sexual intercourse with the Complainant, Defendant Schultz then grabbed the Complainant around her neck in a choke hold. Defendant Schultz then stood up and walked to the front of the Complainant at which time he again got on his knees. Defendant Schultz then began to force the Complainant’s head down to his crotch to force her to perform oral sex.
Defendant Schultz then began to try and hold on to the Complainant, at which time her head dropped to the ground. Defendant Schultz again grabbed the Complainant by her head, forcing it down to his crotch to force her to perform oral sex. Defendant Schultz also began to grab the Complainant around her neck, and began forcing her head in an up and down motion on his penis. Defendant Schultz then grabbed the Complainant around her throat to kiss her, at which time she fell backwards striking her head against the wall. Defendant Schultz then grabbed the Complainant and pulled her close towards him. Defendant Schultz continued to hold onto the Complainant until she fell backwards and struck her head again on the wall, with Defendant Schultz falling on top of her.
The Complainant then pushed Defendant Schultz off her as her body slumped to the ground with her head still against the wall. Defendant Schultz then advanced toward the Complainant and began to lie on top of her. Defendant Schultz again pulled the Complainant towards him, holding on to her until her body collapsed again, this time her head striking the ground. Defendant Schultz then leaned his body on top of the Complainant and began to kiss on her body as she lay defenseless on the ground. Defendant Schultz stopped momentarily, looking around the corner and returned to kissing the Complainant on her body. Defendant Schultz stopped and looked around the corner a second time as Defendant Maldonado returned to the location. As the Complainant continued to lie on the ground, Defendant Maldonado stood over her while Defendant Schultz continued to kneel beside her motionless body. Defendant Maldonado then began to back away as he watched Defendant Schultz lie on top of the Complainant again.
Defendant Schultz then grabbed the Complainant again and forced her head to his penis area. Again, the Complainant collapsed to the ground. Defendant Schultz then leaned back and removed his penis from his pants. He then grabbed the Complainant’s head and leaned into her face, forcing his penis into her mouth. Defendant Schultz then grabbed the Complainant again and began to kiss her about the body. Defendant Schultz again grabbed the Complainant’s head as she continued to lie on the ground and leaned into her face, forcing his penis into her mouth. Defendant Schultz repeated this activity multiple times as the Complainant lie defenseless on the ground. Defendant Schultz then straddled the Complainant’s body as he struck her multiple times in the face with his penis. The Complainant began to move her arm and legs, at which time Defendant Schultz got off of her.
Defendant Schultz then attempted to lift the Complainant off the ground but was unsuccessful as her unconscious body collapsed, causing her to hit her head on the ground. Defendant Schultz then stepped away from the Complainant and began to refasten his shirt and pants. Defendant Schultz then knelt beside the Complainant and lifted her forward. Defendant Schultz then placed his body against the Complainant and continued to hold her as he had her body bent forward. Defendant Schultz again tried several more times to lift the Complainant’s unconscious body but was unsuccessful as she collapsed each time.
Unable to get the Complainant to stand up, Defendant Schultz placed her unconscious body against the garage door gate as she sat on the ground, at which time he sat down beside her. Defendant Schultz tried several times to lean in towards the Complainant but she was able to push him away. Unable to remain sitting up, the Complainant eventually fell over on her left side. Defendant Schultz remained seated on the ground and began to lean over her. Defendant Schultz tried one last time to lift the Complainant to her feet, to no avail. The Complainant’s unconscious body once again collapsed to the ground causing her to strike her head against the wall. Defendant Schultz then stood up and walked away, leaving the Complainant lying alone on the ground. The Complainant lied on the ground for several minutes before being discovered by the Witness, who called 911. The Complainant was transported to Washington Hospital Center by DC EMT Ambulance #26 and a SANE examination was conducted.

Based on the above facts and information it is requested that a duly appointed Judge for The Superior Court of The District of Columbia issue an arrest warrant for the Defendant Nicholas Schultz who is in violation of DC Code. http://articles.dailypress.com/1990-...or-irvin-trial
On that evening a 17-year-old girl agreed to go to dinner with a group of male college students she barely knew. Then she agreed to go to an apartment with them for a party. Somewhere along the line she drank some booze.
By the end of the night, at least seven men had had sex with her. Neither Gatling, who is 21, nor Irvin, who is 20, tried to talk any of them out of it. Instead, they joined in. Or tried.
Irvin was saved by the fact that the jury believed he was impotent when it was his turn.
The rape trial was argued on the same turf as most rape trials: The girl, 5 feet 2 inches tall and 98 pounds, said she was forced to submit to the men's sexual advances. She said when she struggled with one of them, he hit her in the mouth. A medical report showed that her mouth was bruised.
The men said she was a willing participant in an orgy. Lawyers for Irvin and Gatling called witnesses who claimed they heard the girl encourage the men having sex with her.
The defendants also claimed that one of the first men to have sex with her came out of the bedroom yelling, "She's a freak. She's a freak."
Irvin and Gatling apparently took that to mean the 17-year-old was a nymphomaniac.
My question is: What difference does that make?
Does it justify being the seventh guy into the bedroom, or, for that matter, the first?
The jury didn't really address that.
"It was an emotional trial," one of the jurors, Barry Spigel, told me. "But we did a good job of getting rid of our own separate emotions and considering the evidence. The jury felt that there was reasonable doubt of whether a rape had occurred."
"I feel the girl was raped," said Bessie Singleton, another juror. "But the room where this happened was dark, and with all that was going on, it was unclear who was doing what."
"It's not over in my mind," Paul Hoyt, a third juror, confided. "These kinds of trials never are. You hope you call it correctly. I don't know what else you can do. We prayed to God for some guidance. I don't think anybody got any great revelations."
Without divine intervention, the trial turned on legal definitions. That's the only fair way, I know, but in this case it doesn't seem like enough.
Irvin walked free, not because he did the right thing and refused to have sex with a 17-year-old. He testified that he wanted to have intercourse with her but couldn't.
