Hermann man charged with rape, sodomy

Posted

A Hermann man is out of jail after posting a $50,000 surety bond on charges he raped and sodomized a woman Sept. 16 in his home in the 200 block of West 9th Street.

Nathan Paul Weiser, 42, was arrested around 4 p.m. last Wednesday on a felony Gasconade County warrant alleging one count of first-degree rape, and two counts of second-degree sodomy. Charges stem from a Hermann police investigation which began when policeman Scott Eiler took a report from a woman who was being treated at Hermann Area District Hospital.

The woman told police she went to Weiler’s residence to “work on their friendship” when he started to make unwanted sexual advances toward her, according to the probable cause statement filed as the application for the warrant.

The woman told Eiler that Weiser was intoxicated from drinking vodka and an energy drink.

She alleges he forced her off of the recliner chair she was sitting in and forcibly removed her clothing.

She said she told him to stop but  he proceeded to pin her down by her wrists and began to sodomize her. She continued to resist, telling him she did not want this, and alleges Weiser then raped her without using a condom.

After he sodomized her a second time, she managed to push Weiser away and gather up her clothing. She said he began to chase her around the living room, tormenting her, until she was able to flee out the front door.

When she arrived home, she noticed she was bleeding and had blood on her clothing. She reported being in pain while walking, sitting, or standing.

In the application for charges, Eiler’s report noted Weiser has a prior criminal history of domestic assaults, narcotics violations, and property damage,

Weiser was placed on a 24-hour hold that afternoon while the report was completed and the application for warrant was submitted. He was arrested Sept. 17 at the Osage County Jail in Linn.

In a “confined docket hearing” on Friday, Weiser was arraigned and a not guilty plea was entered. He has applied for a public defender and the case was continued until 9 a.m. today (Sept. 23) for a counsel status hearing before Associate Circuit Judge Ada Brehe-Krueger.

A report from the Osage County Sheriff’s Office indicates Weiser was released Friday on bond.
