There has been some confusion over the sexual assault charges against Jacob Blake, the young man who Kenosha police shot in the back seven times after he resisted arrest and lunged in his car.
We know that police were called after Mr. Blake violated a personal protection order and showed up at his ex-girlfriend’s home.
He had warrants for his arrest, and one of them involved a sexual assault.
We now know what happened during that sexual assault, and it’s disturbing.
Blake is accused of a Class G felony sexual assault —which could carry a maximum 10-year prison term— and two counts of domestic abuse involving trespass and disorderly conduct.
The warrant was rescinded Friday afternoon amid outcry at the continued handcuffing of Blake for days after he was shot seven times by a Kenosha police officer.
According to the initial sexual assault complaint, police responded to a crying woman’s home who was wearing a gown and in pain.
She said that while she was sleeping next to her child, Mr. Blake raped her with his fingers.

Daily Mail shared even more gruesome details of the three-count charges against Mr. Blake:
Criminal trespass, domestic abuse (a Class A misdemeanor), and if convicted faces a fine of not more than $10,000 or imprisoned not more than 9 months or both.
Third Degree Sexual assault, Domestic Abuse (a Class G Felony), and if convicted faces a fine of not more than $25,000.00 or imprisoned not more than 10 years, or both.
Disorderly Conduct, Domestic Abuse (a Class B Misdemeanor), and if convicted faces a fine of not more than $1,000 or imprisoned not more than 90 days, or both.
According to the probable cause statement on May 3, 2020, a Kenosha police officer responded to the very same address where Blake was shot at on August 24, 2020 for a report that an ex-boyfriend had broken into the residence and stole vehicle keys, [and] a vehicle debit card before fleeing.
The complainant [who] is listed in the report only by initials, met with officers, crying, visible shaken, and dressed only in a nightgown.
The victim explained to police the previous evening she had left at approximately 8 pm to attend a party in Milwaukee and had rented a vehicle for the weekend because she didn’t think her vehicle would make it up there and back because of mechanical issues.
The victim said she had her sister spend the night and watch her kids when she was gone.
She said she returned back home at about 4.11 am, her sister was sleeping in the living room on the couch with numerous children. She said she took her son with her into the first bedroom down the hallway and went to sleep.
The report states at about 6 am the victim was woken up by Jacob Blake.
Blake was standing over her saying, ‘I want my sh*t.’ As the victim laid on her back, Blake, ‘suddenly and without warning, reached his hand between her legs, penetrated her vaginally with a finger, pull it out and sniffed it, and said, ”Smells like you’ve been with other men.”
The officer noted in the report the victim had a very difficult time telling him this and cried as she told how the defendant (Blake) assaulted her and then the defendant immediately left the bedroom.
She told the police being penetrated digitally caused her pain and humiliation and was done without consent.
In addition, the young woman said that Mr. Blake had physically beat her several times and also stole money from her. She said he was unemployed and drank heavily.
This is the man for whom the NBA nearly ended their entire season, and who corporate America is treating as a “civil rights” hero.
We need to stop this nonsense.
Someone can be unjustly shot or arrested, or treated poorly by police without being turned into a “hero” and treated like a civil rights icon.
This is sending a really terrible message to women everywhere when their abusers and rapists are being exalted as community heroes and icons, all in the name of a political movement.
