Samantha Mears, 20, from Montana, charged with forcing her ex-boyfriend to have sex after breaking into his home and wielding a machete. Mears was sentenced to 20 years in state custody over the June 2018 incident which happened at the victim’s home in Great Falls.
Her case was postponed shortly after her arrest when doctors hired by prosecutors and defense agreed that she was not fit for trial last year.
Mears broke into the victim’s home while he was out at the gas station.
When he arrived back, Mears came out from behind a bedroom door, ‘came up behind him and placed a machete under his throat,’ according to a probable cause document obtained by The Smoking Gun.
She then ordered him to get on the bed, remove his clothes and then she climbed on top of him. The victim told police that he became aroused after seeing Mears without any underwear on and he engaged in intercourse with her.
The man told cops that Mears–who was holding the machete–bit him on the arm and “continued to have sex with him after he attempted to end” the encounter. The man added that, after ejaculating, he sought to “push Mears off of him to end the intercourse,” but she “continued to have sex with him until he was no longer erect.”
The man eventually fled the residence and called 911.
Two months before the sex assault, Mears was arrested for allegedly strangling her boyfriend. As a condition of her release from custody, Mears was ordered to have no contact with the victim and was prohibited from possessing any weapons. (4 pages)
