Cop on trial for alleged statutory rape
WJZ-TV 13 Baltimore |
"David Walter faces a 13-count indictment on charges of rape and misconduct in office for the alleged affair, which police say began when the girl was 13. The girl, now 15, took the witness stand Wednesday and created a stir when she ran away during a court recess. Police found her about 90 minutes later about a half-mile from the courthouse. Authorities say the girl became frustrated and angry during yesterday's cross-examination by Walter's attorney. She snapped at a question about her marijuana use and was ordered by the judge to calm down. The girl also denied suggestions that she had multiple conversations in which she said she and Walter never had sex."
