Darlene Rodriguez Stands By Accused Rapist Hubby

Darlene Rodriguez‘s police officer husband being accused of rape… We’ve covered it before.

It turns out that, yesterday, she accompanied husband David Rodriguez when he turned himself in on charges relating to raping a 17-year-old-girl.

The host of Today in New York told her fellow reporters, “I just want to say I know a lot of you and a lot of you know me. I’m here to support my husband [...] I believe in him. I love him. He’s innocent 100 percent.”

The 17-year-old girl he allegedly raped was also able to distinguish identifying features of his genitalia, including a shaved pubic area. Uhh, Darlene… he might not be “innocent 100 percent.” Hate to tell ya, but it kind of sounds like he’s not.

Also, for the sake of disclosure, the 17-year-old was living with a 35-year-old boyfriend who was rumored to be a drug dealer and who had just been arrested for assaulting her. One thing is for sure: There is more to this story than what has been reported.
