A Louisiana teen was charged for raping a female classmate twice at a booze-fueled party after their prom.
Tzuriel Rex Pedigo, 17, of Baton Rouge, was arrested Tuesday after the victim reported the May 25 incident to authorities, according The Advocate.
The victim told investigators that the two were drinking at a house party following their high school prom.
She said they went into a kitchen pantry where Pedigo raped her. She told authorities that she had said no and struggled to stop him.
Investigators said Pedigo later asked the girl to go back into the pantry to discuss what had transpired, but pinned her arms down on the floor and raped her again.
She said she confronted him about the assault the next week over text message and in person at school, which she recorded, according to police.
During these conversations, Pedigo allegedly admitted to the rape and said he was “ashamed.”
“Every time I think of what I done, I’m reminded that I’m a monster, or at least I feel like one,” Pedigo said, according to authorities.
He reportedly told the girl that he couldn’t stop himself because he was too drunk.
Authorities charged Pedigo with two counts of first-degree rape.
He was booked at Parish Prison, where he was released on $40,000 bond, according to court records.
