A Springs man, Marlon Rodriguez-Camacho, 26, is facing three criminal charges, including felony criminal contempt after allegedly coercing a woman to have sex. The alleged incident also violated of a court order of protection filed by the woman.

According to the East Hampton Town police, Rodriguez-Camacho was issued an order out of family court in Riverside to refrain from any harassing actions against a woman with whom he has a child.

The alleged victim told police that the two of them have split up, but that when she goes to Rodriguez-Camacho’s residence to pick up the child after a visit, the defendant pressures her to have sex. The woman sought help from an agency that protects abused women, and eventually was issued an order of protection.

On December 5, she went to his house after work to pick up the child when he grabbed her, attempting to force her to have sex, and threw her on the bed where their child was, the woman told police. The child began crying loudly, she said, and she carried the youngster to her car. Rodriguez-Camacho, however, followed her and got into the car with her, she told police, and refused to get out, even when she pulled out of the driveway. He began yelling at her, eventually getting out of the car, she told police.

The woman called police, and Rodriguez-Camacho was soon in custody.

Besides the felony charge, Rodriguez-Camacho was charged with two misdemeanors, endangering the welfare of a child and forcible touching.

He was released the next day after his family posted $2000 bail.
