Former Beaverton, Ore., police Officer Christopher R. Warren took the stand Wednesday in Clark County Superior Court to deny allegations that he raped a 5-year-old girl with a pencil last year inside his central Vancouver home.
Warren, 34, said he believes the allegations stemmed from his ex-wife, Dina Sanchez, and were an attempt at revenge against him because of their divorce and his second marriage.
“We all watched (the alleged victim) make the allegations, isn’t that correct?” asked Senior Deputy Prosecutor Camara Banfield during cross-examination.
“We watched what she said, yes,” Warren replied.
The girl, now 6, testified Tuesday that Warren penetrated her private parts with a pencil and that it felt “kind of weird” and “hurt for second.”
Under law, rape isn’t limited to intercourse and can include penetration with an object.
