Soldier Facing Rape Charge in N.C. Faces Similar Charges in Ga.

Posted March 13, 2007

— A soldier accused of assaulting and raping a woman on Fort Benning in February could face a court martial.

Military officials said Spc. Menkaura Moss, 21, of Virginia Beach, Va., who is assigned to the 108th Military Police Company at Fort Bragg, has also been accused of committing forcible sodomy, assault, assault with intent to commit rape and communicating a threat to kill the woman.

Moss also faces rape charges in Spring Lake where police say he attacked three women at an apartment complex.

Moss arrived at Fort Benning Feb. 16 to attend airborne school. He would have graduated from the course on March 9.

Moss has been assigned a military defense counsel to represent him at any future court procedures.

    Tired of thoughtlessness, Sodomy is defined as sex either orally or anally.
    and darleneclark.. as I understand that some vindictive women have cried "rape" as a form of revenge, I highly doubt that 4 different women would fabricate the same story with the same description of a suspect. Luckily, I believe they have DNA evidence so that will take care of any doubts.
    The problem is, our justice system, or lack thereof, will let him out on the streets in a few years so he can terrorize more women and their children.

    What exactly is forcible sodomy? I hope it is not what I am thinking.

    lilreno- I am absolutely NOT blaming the military as a whole, I simply stated what an example HE (one) sets. He himself makes the military look bad. what a shame!

    He must enjoy the roughness,. He isn't a bd looking boy, that's the problem, he is old enough to fight for our country, but still a boy with common sense. Wonder what his story will be
