Be careful who you have a drinking session with. Apparently, drinking buddies can do the most outrageous things to you. These include drugging, raping and shaving your body hair.
John Haig Marshall of Redondo Beach did just that. In 2009, he drugged and raped his drinking buddy with a thin, hard object. He then went on to shave the body hair off his drinking buddy who lay helpless in the shower. What could have driven John to drug and rape his buddy? What made him shave his pal's body hair? Is it some kind of gay fetish
He "was arrested on a felony charge of penetration with a foreign object while using a drug." His victim said Marshall invited him over because he needed help fixing his computer. The drinking started and it was eventually followed by the sexual and shaving encounter in the shower. But Marshall's attorney says his client asserts "the shower was consensual and there was no sexual penetration."
Marshall was a former Redondo Beach Police Department reserve officer in 1980. He resigned for unknown reasons. Prior to the incident described above, he has been investigated for allegations of sexual assault and dealing drugs which involved teenage boys. He has been the subject of previous investigations regarding sex, drugs, and teen boys. Anonymous tipsters say Marshall has handed out "cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana, and alcohol" to his underage buddies. Detectives suspected that
Marshall could have been raping men and boys for the last 30 years.
Marshall was sentenced to serve three years as part of a plea deal. He pleaded no contest to raping an intoxicated person. He will have to register as a sex offender when he gets out of jail.
