Man arrested months after alleged dorm room rape

Man arrested months after alleged dorm room rape

A man was recently arrested on accusations of raping a Kennesaw State student in a University Village dorm room last September.

According to the AJC, Miller Menetre, 22, has been held in the Cobb County Adult Detention Center without bond since his arrest on Feb. 1. Menetre has said that he is not guilty of any crime involving sexual assault. He admitted to having a sexual encounter with the woman but said it was consensual.

Menetre’s defense attorney said that Menetre had known the woman for two weeks before the incident. He had also been a KSU student before he decided to transfer to Georgia State University prior to the incident.

The woman told police that she had a few drinks and was starting to feel “dizzy and tired,” so Menetre took her to her room and put her to bed, according to the AJC article. She told police that she woke up later, realizing what had allegedly happened.

Menetre was reportedly arrested several months after the woman first reported the alleged crime on Sept. 21 to the KSU Police Department, according to the Marietta Daily Journal.

During the fall 2017 semester, three timely notifications were sent to students — one regarding a robbery and two regarding fondlings. KSU Police still have not sent notifications for rapes that have occurred on campus.

KSU Public Safety records show that there have been no reports of sexual misconduct on the Kennesaw campus so far this year.

Menetre has a magistrate court appearance scheduled for March 6.
