SIKESTON, Mo. (AP) - A woman who says she was assaulted by former Missouri House Speaker Rod Jetton initially told police he restrained her and performed unwanted sex.
According to a police report released to the Southeast Missourian, the woman told police that Jetton beat her and restrained her hands with a belt.
The Kansas City Star reported Friday that the woman and Jetton had been friends for several years.
Jetton is charged in southeast Missouri's Scott County with second-degree assault. His lawyer says the 42-year-old Marble Hill Republican is not guilty.
The Nov. 15 incident at the woman's Sikeston home was described differently in a police probable cause statement.
That statement says Jetton and the woman had discussed sex and agreed to a safe word that would be used to halt the sex.
