Felon accused of rape: It was consensual

A 14-time felon accused of raping a woman in an abandoned house in downtown Spokane told police the sex was consensual, according to court documents filed Wednesday.

Kelvin D. McCauley, 43, was arrested Tuesday night near 3rd Avenue and Monroe Street after a woman told police she’d jumped from a second-floor window in the 1100 block of West 5th Avenue to escape him.

The 21-year-old woman was taken to a hospital with broken ribs and a broken wrist; police aren’t sure if the injuries came from an assault or from the jump.

She told police she was walking downtown when she met McCauley “and began talking to him about God,” according to court documents. He had invited her to his house to see his children when he forced her upstairs at knife point and raped her, police said.

McCauley, who has 38 misdemeanor convictions, was ordered held on $150,000 bond after appearing in Superior Court Wednesday on charges of second-degree rape and first-degree burglary.

He declined to speak with police other than to say the sex was consensual.

“I think I just answered the most important question,” McCauley said, according to court documents.

McCauley, whose convictions include theft and money laundering, is to stay at the House of Charity if he posts bail. His arraignment is set for Aug. 3.
