Accused Planned Parenthood Shooter Had Rape Charge

Accused Planned Parenthood shooter Robert Lewis Dear has rape charge on record.

“The man accused of opening fire Friday in a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood was charged with rape in North Charleston more than 20 years ago, according to police reports.

Robert Lewis Dear, a Charleston native, was arrested Dec. 31, 1992, on a charge of first-degree criminal sexual conduct. No disposition for the charge shows up on Dear’s official criminal record, generally an indication that a charge has been dismissed. The Post and Courier could not determine late Monday how the case was resolved.” [READ MORE]
