70 year old drugged and abused victim, the accused him of assault

David Popper

A seventy year old Burrell Boom resident is accused of a hideous sexual offense against a twenty three year old man, who he allegedly drugged.   This afternoon, David Popper was arraigned in the court of Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer for an Unnatural Crime and Wounding of the twenty-three year old victim.  He was also charged with Committing a Mischievous Act for giving a false report to P.C. Ronald Sutherland. The prosecutor objected to bail on the grounds that Popper was a flight risk if he was granted bail. The Magistrate concurred saying that because of the nature of the crime he was accused, she may regret sending him back to the area. The victim is claiming that on Saturday afternoon, he visited Popper at a house in the Riverside area of Burrell Boom where he claimed that Popper gave him something to drink that caused him to be dizzy and lose consciousness.  According to the victim, when he briefly regained consciousness he saw Popper standing next to him. He finally woke up at about eight-thirty that night and by that time, police were at his mother’s house investigating a report Popper made claiming that he had been assaulted by the victim. The twenty-three year old was taken to the Ladyville police, where still under the effects of the substance he drank, fell asleep and did not wake up until the following day, on Sunday evening.  It was then that he realized that he was bleeding and a doctor subsequently confirmed that he had been carnally known. Popper is due back in court in May.

    Roaring Creek seems to have its share of sickos, homeland for the psycho-gangs and anything goes.

    Recent ambush murder of police constable Bertchel Ramirez.

    What ever happened to Aracely Cahueque and her posse Darren Banner, Jason Anderson and Brandon Budna? Kill the mother to steal the baby to try to convince ex-boyfriend the baby be his, smacks of desperation and too ugly in the heart to be near, all from a Corozal’s Beauty Queen. And her three man slaves, what did they think they were going to get out of chopping up Raylene Dyer? Kiss the bride when she married her true love? Did this case ever go to trial? Or just another GOB backwater investigation.

    Don’t forget, buy your rosewood cheap and sell high, same for passports and drivers licenses.
    Make sure when paying the corruption officers that you retain the legal right to transfer those documents at your choosing to whoever you can sell them to. No honor amongst thieves, protect yourself and get a lawyer before it gets too thick. There are no refunds, and heavy fines (additional fees) if you screw up.
