The woman testified Tuesday she met Weedmayer March 12 at Early Birds, a nightclub, where they exchanged numbers. After a couple of dates, she testified he forced himself upon her on March 19. She said she told him to go, while he asked why and continued to stay in the woman's apartment. Eventually, he left.
During cross examination Wednesday morning, Allen County Deputy Prosecutor Tesa Helge read texts from Weedmayer to the victim afterward: "I'm so sorry. I feel so bad. Forgive me. I didn't mean to do that."
Defense attorney Anthony Churchward asked Weedmayer why he was apologizing so profusely. Weedmayer testified he called her a name after she spoke with another guy and felt badly about it.
Bond was vacated on the rape charge, but remained $2,500 on the sexual battery charge. Weedmayer was ordered to surrender his passport.
Sentencing is scheduled for April 11.
