Buck, who is currently the Weld County district attorney, refused to prosecute a rape case five years ago. The victim secretly (but legally) taped her meeting with Buck, and has now provided a copy of the transcript to the Colorado Independent in an attempt to reveal Buck's deeply problematic stance on issues like sexual assault. The alleged assault occurred when, the victim said, a man entered her apartment and had sex with her while she was drunk. He was a former lover, and she had invited him over, but she said "no" several times as she passed in and out of consciousness. According to the local police, the perpetrator admitted these facts, but Buck still refused to charge him with a crime, even though the victim says that the police recommended that he be prosecuted on felony charges. "A jury could very well conclude that this is a case of buyer's remorse," Buck explained, adding that the evidence in the case was "pitiful." In the private meeting with the victim, Buck told her, "It appears to me that you invited him over to have sex with him." He added that although she hadn't said yes, "the appearance is of consent."
And that's not all - as the conversation progressed, Buck told the woman that because she had been pregnant with the perpetrator's baby during their relationship, and they had considered an abortion (she later miscarried), that these were extentuating circumstances, "something that might be a motive for trying to get back at somebody."
