The rape and kidnapping trial of a Mansfield man begins in Richland County Common Pleas Court.

Rashaune Ramsey, 34,  faces life in prison if convicted. During opening statements, Assistant Prosecutor Dan Benoit said Ramsey received word March 20, his girlfriend had been cooperating with Mansfield Police who were investigating drug dealing.

He's accused of ordering his associates to bring her to his home at 201 Rowland Avenue, and forcing her into the attic and raping her. Defense Attorney Josh Brown claims the sexual encounter was consensual.

The first prosecution witness was one of several people living in Ramsey's home. She says he was very controlling. The trial should last into early next week.

Rashaune Ramsey will be tried later on separate Aggravated Burglary and Felonious Assault charges stemming from a November 30th incident. The FBI is investigating Ramsey for involvement in not only drug trafficking, but human sex trafficking involving dozens of victims.
