13th Stepping North Carolina Style

Douglas LePage is an AA in North Carolina who was convicted of drugging and raping a 14-year old girl. In this case, he laced the girl’s banana cream pie with clonazepam and benzos, and sneaked into the guest room where the girl was sleeping, where he sexually assaulted her. His wife, who he had also drugged, lay passed out in her bed at the time.

This was not the first time LePage had done this type of thing, of course. He had honed his molestation skills in AA, where picked up another AA, who was sixteen years old, and who he eventually molested:

“At trial, the State presented the following evidence pursuant to N.C. Gen. Stat. § 8C-1 Rule, 404(b). First, the trial court offered the testimony of B.E. B.E. testified that in July 2006, when she was sixteen years old, she met Defendant at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. Within a few months of becoming friends with Defendant, Defendant began to discuss his sexual problems with B.E. Defendant told her that he could no longer have sex because he had injected drugs into his groin. However, Defendant told B.E. that he could “make [B.E.] feel like a woman, meaning perform oral sex [on her], touch [her], protrude [sic] [her] in other ways.” Defendant told B.E. that he did not have a problem with her age because “it’s legal in North Carolina.” B.E. ended her relationship with Defendant because she “got scared.” Defendant contends that the ‘trial court erred in admitting this evidence because it was not sufficiently similar to the charged offenses.'”

This an interesting take the ‘amends steps’ 8 and 9.

As they say in AA, “some are sicker than others”, and this scumbag is about as sick as it gets. It seems that in addition to drugging underage girls he seduces in AA meetings, he enjoys drugging family members so he can molest them, as well:

“The State also presented a videotape displaying sexual activity involving Defendant and his female cousin, L.E. The video was taken during the time Defendant left his home and went to stay with L.E. in Ohio. In the video, Defendant can be seen inserting objects into L.E.’s vagina. L.E. did not appear to be conscious during the activity, and she testified at trial that she did not remember the activity. L.E. also testified that she did not consent to the activity and that she remembered being ill and vomiting during Defendant’s visit.”

Fortunately, this piece of garbage will continue his AA spiritual growth in a North Carolina prison, where he will be spending the next 27 to 34 years. No doubt he will find plenty AA meetings behind bars, but maybe this time the person getting 13th stepped will be him.
