Prison Lifer Back to Jail for Alleged Rape

Kenroy Cooke

Forty-three-year-old Kenroy Cooke was arraigned today in court on two counts of unnatural act and one count of harm which occurred on the twenty-fifth and twenty-ninth of November of this year. Magistrate Aretha Ford read the charges to Cooke and adjourned the case to March fourteenth 2018.  Cooke, who’s already in prison on multiple charges, is accused of sodomizing a twenty-year-old man on two separate occasions. Cooke is described as a career criminal, in and out of the prison for the last fifteen years.  And it is there that he was accused of sodomizing the inmate.  We have been reporting the story since last week – and since then the victim has been granted bail and is out of prison. In an interview on Tuesday night, the victim alleged that Cooke choked, sodomized and beat him to a pulp. He claims that the security guard on duty didn’t act on the first report he made which led to the second assault. The family of the victim claims that the young man was intentionally placed in the “hole” with Cooke, as a form of punishment. We will get the prison’s response on Thursday.
