Rapist Prepared To Protect Himself From Disease
May. 13, 1988
PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ When a rapist forced a businesswoman into the back of her store to rape her, she tried to discourage him by claiming to have AIDS.
It didn't work; he had a condom.
He might have gotten away with it if he had not called the victim for a date, come back and found police waiting.
A jury Wednesday convicted Frank Nellom of rape and deviate sexual intercourse. No sentencing date was set.
The victim testified Nellom forced her into the restroom of her store in 1987, raped her twice and fled with $120.
'''You might not want to do this,''' the woman testified she said. '''I've got a disease.' He then pulled out a condom. I was completely shocked and stunned.''
Nearly two weeks later Nellom telephoned, the woman said in recalling his conversation: '''Remember me? I'm the guy who robbed and raped you. I feel so bad for what I did to you. Can I take you to dinner?'''
She agreed, and when Nellom arrived, he was met by police.
