Convicted Rapist Caught Working As A Security Guard At A Rape Center

A California man who served 13 years in prison for rape has been caught working security at a Downtown Fresno rape counseling center.

Damon Rodgers was in court because he was found to be in possession of a gun and a switchblade which he is not supposed to have because he is a convicted felon.

It was when Roger’s details were looked into that officials were surprised to learn he was working among rape victims despite have been found guilty of the crime himself.

Court records show he committed two rapes in 1997 in Madera County, and even tried to commit a third.

‘Mr. Rodgers was in possession of a weapon, and to our surprise, was working at Rape Counseling Services at the time,’ said Sgt. Israel Reyes of the Fresno Police Department to ABC7.

‘They weren’t aware of it obviously, and they were very shocked and I believe they immediately took action with the security company that they hired,’ said Reyes.

‘Rape counseling services provides services for victims who have been sexually assaulted and then you have an individual who is a convicted sex offender for rape and attempted rape working at their facility. The optics on that are really bad,’ he continued.

‘As far as we know there were no victims who were ever disturbed by Rodgers, but again it’s something where an individual like that should not be working at that center,’ Mr Reyes added.

Stone Protection Services who were employing Rodgers say they were not aware of his history but a former employer at another security company did and made it his business to tip off the police.
