PORTLAND -- A man accused of raping a developmentally disabled woman was acquitted by a Multnomah County judge on Thursday.
Cedric Graves, 33, of Troutdale was found not guilty on all counts by Judge Judith Matarazzo during the bench trial.
A grand jury had indicted Graves for the rape and sex abuse of a developmentally disabled co-worker in the back of his van, after he had offered to give her a ride to work.
At the time of his arrest, Graves told KGW News he didn’t do it and called the allegation a lie.
"I don’t rape females. I live with my mom and my grandmother. My parents know me. They know where I’m from. They know what I’m about. They know where I’m going when I die,” Graves told KGW.
