Most Helpful Guy
That's a tricky question, I would definitely be very careful. If it was just a rape charge, there MIGHT be more to the story than you see (i. e. they were at a party and lots of booze was involved, the next day she realized what had happened and filed a police report, and even though it was technically a rape, it was also because she was super drunk and things went further than she wanted).
But this report says it's a "Top-level" rape charge, unlawful imprisonment, criminal obstruction of breathing, and it looks like the list of charges continues. Either the victim has a heavy fisted lawyer who's trying to tear this guy to shreds, or this was an egregious and violent rape.
I'd steer clear if I were you, there are too many other guys out there with clean records who don't have that kind of history for you to need to settle for a violent criminal.1
