Woman rapes man? Judge says 'no'

It was a headline-grabbing story: A 33-year-old man told police a woman forced him at gunpoint to have sex with her female friend in the backseat of a car.

The man begged one of the women to stop, according to an early account from Assistant Cook County State's Attorney Amanda Pillsbury. He said he escaped only after running out of the car naked from the waist down and flagged down a nearby cabbie. Prosecutors believed the man's story and filed rape charges against a 25-year-old woman.

On Tuesday, a judge dismissed the case saying there simply isn't enough evidence the man was actually raped.

"The facts of the case were incredibly unbelievable," the woman's attorney, Marty Abrams, tells ABC 7. "The judge made absolutely the correct decision."

The man told police he was walking in the 400-block of North Kingsbury early in the morning of July 26th. He said a woman, whom he later identified in a police line-up, offered him a ride.

While she was driving, the woman was accused of pulling out a revolver and ordering the man to get in the back and have sex with her friend. The woman in the backseat demanded that he take off his clothes and the man complied by taking off his shoes, pants and underwear before he was assaulted, prosecutors said. A police report indicates the two women also took $200 from the man.

The woman has previous misdemeanor prostitution convictions.
