A online post bragging about the rape of an unconscious and intoxicated woman has led to two guilty pleas, according to the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office.
Jonas Isaac Dick pleaded guilty to one felony count of rape of an unconscious person. He will be sentenced March 25. Sentencing range is mandatory between five and eight years in state prison. He must register as a sex offender.
Jason Berlin pleaded guilty to one felony count of rape of an intoxicated person. Sentencing is set for May.
These developments are in connection with an incident that happened in October 2013, prosecutors told NBC 7.
Dick and Berlin blogged about the attack on a San Diego-based website that claimed to teach men how to meet, seduce and sleep with women in one night, according to the initial complaint.
Court documents obtained exclusively by NBC 7 San Diego allege, around October 13-14, 2013, the men met the intoxicated woman and agreed to go back to one of their residences located in the Gaslamp Quarter.
There, according to court records, the woman’s friend found the victim unconscious, face down on a bed and surrounded by vomit with two of the defendants nude around her.
The friend dragged the woman from the room and the two reported what happened to San Diego Police, according to the complaint.
A third defendant, Alexander Markham Smith, 26, has pleaded not guilty to one count of rape of an intoxicated person and one count of rape of an unconscious person.
According to a police investigator, “The next day Smith blogged about the incident, touting his sexual prowess. Berlin confessed to engaging in sex with a female who moments before vomited. He chronicled the incident with great detail implicating himself, Smith and Dick.”
Police claim they found “hundreds of pornographic photographs and videos…several of nude women asleep or unconscious” on Smith’s phone.
Smith’s trial will begin April 4.
