JEFFERSON COUNTY — From the Jefferson County Police Department
Jefferson County Criminal District Attorney Bob Wortham announced today that RACHEL MARIE GREEN has been convicted of 2 counts of Sexual Assault by a Jefferson County jury.
This is the first time in Jefferson County that the District Attorney’s Office has indicted a woman for Sexual Assault of another woman. The case was investigated by the Special Victim’s Unit of the Beaumont Police Department.
On August 23, 2016 Detective Darrell Lebeouf began the investigation and learned that the Sexual Assault had occurred on July 30, 2016. The investigation revealed that the defendant Rachel Green attended a house party with the victim and other friends. At the party, the defendant forcibly raped the 35 year old victim, according to police.
Misty Craver, Director of the Victim’s Advocacy Center, served as an expert witness for the State. The offense is a second degree felony and carries a range of punishment of 2 to 20 years and a fine of up to $10,000. Green was eligible for probation since she had no felony convictions on her record. The jury sentenced her to three years probation on each count. The sentences will run concurrently.
The jury sentenced Green to a term of 3 years in prison and probated the sentence for a period of ten years. Rachel Green must register as a sex offender for the rest of her life.
This case was prosecuted by Assistant Criminal District Attorneys Amy E. Tomlinson and Kimberly Pipkin.
