Ex-Prosecutor Indicted in Rape Case



Former Contra Costa County sex crimes prosecutor Michael Gressett has been indicted in connection with the alleged rape of a female prosecutor, according to the Chron. The secret indictment angered Gressett's attorneys who had hoped to cross-examine the alleged victim in open court and show that the charges are politically motivated. Gressett admits to having sex with the woman, but maintains it was consensual. But the alleged victim, who is now a prosecutor in another county, claims the sex turned violent and that Gressett held a gun to her head as he forcibly sodomized her.
