Victim Says She Was Forced Repeatedly and Abused

In describing her ex-boyfriend, the alleged victim says that Rodriguez has managed to turn her family against her, reportedly through unfulfilled promises.  During their brief relationship, the woman alleges that she was forced into having intercourse on a number of occasions against her will.
