First of all I'd like to know the ages of these women.
Second; one woman claims rape then dates the perp?
Third; the second victim is in a locked bedroom when the first victim leaves and the perp then goes in and rapes the second woman? Did the first victim leave the door unlocked? Why didn't the first victim hear the second screem? Why did no one else hear the second victim call for help? Why did the first victim leave "her" boyfriend outside the door?
Granted this guy sounds like a loser but I hope "the rest of the story" gets published. Of course I'm sure the story could have been reported much better than it was.

this kid is such a loser the local cpd has had numeroius involvments with him ranging from numerous domestic situations to other alcohol related offenses. forget about turning this story against the victims. our society and this state is quick to judge the state of mind of a victim. let us not forget this is the second charge of rape a class a crime. also i would love to know why if the story states he is on hourse arrest how come i have seen him visit numerous establishements in town. is there someoen monitoring this kid.

The lowell sun did an awful job with the story of the 2 rape victims. I know the two women and the story was published incorrectly. He is a scum bag and he should be put away for a very long time.

Sound like the first alleged "rape" charge was only made after the girlfiend (the 1st victim) catches him with her friend (the 2nd victim) who, of course, denies cheating on her best friend with the boyfriend (now called a perp)...

Maybe some forensic evidence would be nice, but you'll never see local police and the Middlesex DA's office look for or worry about things like "evidence." Remeber, the DA is an Elected Politician, not a professional attorney, and he takes money from the unions.

Regardless of whether the kid is a d-bag or not, I think the judge saw right thru this one and set an appropriate bail.

Sound like, you are writing your own defend here. Is that true that you did not rape them? Tell the world my friend. You are very lucky that you are stay at home and they did not lock you up. I know you will do that again. You will get life.

Early the next morning, the woman left the party with Mattaliano and woke up having sex with him. She told police she told him no at least twice, but he didn't stop. Afterward, she began to date Mattaliano .

so....she was raped by him then dates him? then he's accused of raping a friend of hers?

Um....Im usually the first one who says hang the rapists....but is anyone else smelling a false accusation here?

Google "Danny Mattaliano" and your'll see for yourself what type of person he really is. By the way more rape victims came forward.

I knew this kid since highschool. Not only does he sport a sweet jersey shore hair style and tan, but I have totally seen his molester-like behavior at parties I have been to. He basically corners you into a wall and forces you to make out with him. Luckily my standards are high, I was sober and I had strength to push this disgusting piece of slob off.

I merely asked a question and didnt pass judgement. I am allwoed to question the story -- if a guy is falsely accused of rape, his life is over. it DOES happen, especially in college

Is the judge retarded? Violent offender AND a flight risk.

Huh? He's 24 years old. Couldn't he have bought the alcohol himself? What planet did you beam down from?
