Cops: Pennsylvania Coach Told Student to ‘Forget About the Rape and It Will Go Away’
Approximately two hours later, she woke up again to find Gomez-Echavarria touching her “private areas.” He eventually forced her to have sexual intercourse, but she said that she did not scream out of fear that he could hurt her.
According to the probable cause affidavit, Gomez-Echavarria told the victim that the rape was “our little secret” and then went to sleep. The girl texted her coach sleeping on the bed next to her, but Colon did not see the message until the next morning.
A police report said that Colon advised the girl to “forget about the rape and it will go away.”
But after police informed her that they had her text messages as evidence, she admitted that she had feared losing her job.
