Jesse Andrew Green, Ex-Garden Grove Cop, Accused of Sexually Assaulting Women, Calling Them "Whores," Telling Them He's Diseased
A prosecutor laid out that story for jurors Tuesday, but defendant Jesse Andrew Green's defense attorney called the Huntington Beach 35-year-old's accusers liars who continued dating him after the alleged attacks.
Here is the case the Orange County District Attorney's made in October 2010 against Green, who at that time was on administrative leave from the Garden Grove Police Department that had employed him for four years. He was fired the following month.
On April 26, 2006, Green is accused of going to the Santa Ana home of Jane Doe #2, a 41-year-old woman he had met online and had been dating in a short-term on-again, off-again relationship. The defendant is accused of forcibly sodomizing the victim against her will as she screamed and struggled to get away. During the sexual assault, Green is accused of making derogatory and intimidating statements to frighten the victim. He is accused of then leaving Jane Doe #2's home.
On Nov. 6, 2009, Green is accused of going to his Huntington Beach apartment with 40-year-old Jane Doe #1, whom he met through a mutual friend, after having dinner on their first date. The defendant is accused of forcibly sodomizing the victim against her will as she screamed and struggled to get away. During the sexual assault, Green is accused of making derogatory and intimidating statements to frighten the victim. Jane Doe #1 was eventually able to break free and run out of the apartment.
Both victims were extremely reluctant to report the sexual assault to law enforcement, fearing that Green may use his position as a police officer to retaliate against them. The two victims do not know each other. The Santa Ana Police Department investigated the case involving Jane Doe #2 and the Huntington Beach Police Department (HBPD) investigated the case involving Jane Doe #1.
Now that the trial has finally begun, we discover there are three victims and, thanks to Deputy District Attorney Eric Scarbrough's opening statement, what those derogatory and intimidating statements were. Green allegedly forced the women to perform a sex act they objected to while insulting them and claiming he was giving them a sexually transmitted disease.
But the prosecutor also made it clear that each woman--identified in court only as Gina, Abigail and Marissa--knew Green before the alleged assaults, made "physically, emotionally and psychologically confusing reports of date rape," and "did some foolish things, dangerous things, afterward," (according to reporter Paul Anderson's City News Service report).
Abigail, who met Green through the dating website Match.com, went on a second date with him after he allegedly forced her to perform a sex act on him but she cannot say why, Scarbrough explained.
