Newport Beach Man Pleads Guilty to Rape of Woman

David Charles Wilson agrees to a plea deal and admits to felony rape, forcible oral copulation charges and a misdemeanor resisting arrest charge.

A Newport Beach man pleaded guilty Friday to raping a woman he invited to his home and then holding off police for several hours.

David Charles Wilson, 50, pleaded guilty to felony rape and forcible oral copulation charges and a misdemeanor resisting arrest charge in exchange for the dismissal of assault with a deadly weapon, criminal threats, forcible sexual penetration, rape and false imprisonment counts, according to court records.

Wilson is scheduled for sentencing on Oct. 19. Messages left with the prosecutor and the defendant's attorney were not immediately returned.

The victim accepted Wilson's invitation to come to his Newport Beach home in the 4600 block of Camden Drivefor the first time on May 9, 2011, arriving about 10 p.m., according to Deputy District Attorney Jennifer Walker. The two had met a few months earlier and had been talking on the phone up until then, the prosecutor said. When she arrived, Wilson choked the woman and threatened to kill her if she did not do as he said, then raped her in his bedroom and elsewhere in the house, Walker alleged.

The prosecutor also accused Wilson of forcing the victim to perform oral sex on him and using his fingers, a pen and a toothbrush to sexually assault her. The woman had told a friend where she was going that night, and when the friend could not reach her by phone, she drove to Wilson's house and called out to the victim, Walker said.

The woman climbed through a window and ran to her friend's car. A neighbor who heard a commotion called 911, but Wilson barricaded himself in the house for about seven hours, finally surrendering about 9:40 the next morning, Walker said.
