Darlene Rodriguez's husband David accused of rape


WNBC's morning anchor Darlene Rodriquez finds herself at the center of a controversy that she doesn't deserve to be in.

Rodriguez's husband, David, is accused of raping a 17-year-old girl. Darlene isn't the only one in a high profile position either. David is a cop himself.

"I'm here to support my husband," Darlene Rodriguez said after the arraignment, standing next to her husband. "I believe in him. I love him. He's innocent 100 percent."

Stephen Worth, Rodriguez's lawyer, criticized the investigation of the officer, saying it had been conducted "in a rather slipshod fashion."

"This is a false allegation," said Worth. "The complainant has a number of motives to make a false allegation," he said.

David Rodriguez and four was called to the victim's house to answer a domestic violence call. The 17-year-old was involved in a fight with her boyfriend, who within the span of a week was charged with third-degree assault and criminal contempt.

The girl says following that incident, Rodriguez returned to her Cliff Street home when he was off duty and raped her.
