The day after he got out of prison, an Elkhorn man raped a woman who had been writing him letters, according to a criminal complaint filed Wednesday in Walworth County Court.

David A. Conrad, 35, of 24 N. Jackson St., served prison time for second-degree sexual assault of a child, court records show.

The new criminal complaint states Conrad was released from prison Sept. 2 and that evening met in Delavan with a woman who had been writing him letters. The woman had not met Conrad before his release from the Stanley Correctional Institution, according to the complaint.

The woman paid for two nights at the Super 8 Motel in Delavan. On the first night, Conrad snorted prescription medication and stayed up all night, the complaint states.

The next day, Conrad started taking off the woman’s clothes, even though she told him she wanted to wait to have sex, according to the complaint.

Conrad threw the woman onto the bed and had sex with her even though she screamed and told him to stop, according to the complaint.

After the rape, Conrad pushed the woman down, and she hit her head. After he left, he texted her and apologized, the complaint states.

A detective Sept. 5 spoke with Conrad, who said the sex was consensual.

Judge Phillip Koss on Friday ordered Conrad held on a $50,000 cash bond, court records show.

Conrad is scheduled for a preliminary hearing at 3 p.m. Monday, Sept. 17.
