ADA — An accused rapist charged with the sexual assault of his 12-year-old stepdaughter appeared in court Thursday and waived his right to a jury trial.

Larry Day, 30, Ada, was arrested in September and charged with first degree rape after Ada police were alerted to the alleged crime by hospital officials.

According to police reports, the assault occurred in the family’s home while the victim’s mother was not present. The victim told police Day gave her Xanax, an anti-anxiety medication, and alcohol to drink. Reports said, the victim then alleged Day attacked her and raped her.

The victim told police Day gave her more anti-anxiety medication after the assault and threatened her at knifepoint not to tell anyone.

When the victim’s mother returned home, reports said Day was intoxicated and had gone to bed. The victim told her mother of the attack and was taken to the Emergency Room where a rape kit was performed and police were notified. Police reportedly observed a bite-mark on the victim’s wrist and a hickey on her neck.

During a search of the home, police confiscated several items of evidence appearing to be consistent with a sexual assault.

Assistant District Attorney Chris Ross filed the formal charges of rape in the first degree and forcible sodomy against Day in early September.

Since his arrest, Day has been held on a $250,000 bond awaiting trial.

Day is scheduled to reappear Feb. 22, at 8:30 a.m.
