Marlins Catcher Faces Rape Trial


— November 5, 2003

Florida Marlins backup catcher Ramon Castro was ordered Wednesday to stand trial on charges that he raped a woman in a Pittsburgh hotel this summer after she testified that he attacked her.

The 28-year-old woman testified at a preliminary hearing that she and a friend spent several hours bar-hopping with Castro and that the two agreed to go to Castro’s room with another man for some wine early on the morning of Aug. 28.

Castro attacked her after the other man and her friend went to a different room, the woman said.

Why is Kobe all over everything, and this is the first I’ve heard about these allegations?? The AP reports here via CBS News.
