Marion Oaks — Diamond L. Polycarpe, 19, of Marion Oaks is in jail facing numerous charges related to the sexual assault of a child.
A case concerning Polycarpe was developed when detectives learned that the victim was taken to MRMC by her mom, to be treated for alcohol intoxication. According to reports, the victims blood alcohol level was .189, more than twice the state’s legal limit of .08.
The victim told investigators she met Polycarpe (a.k.a “Majesty”) on Facebook, and she and a friend went to the Marion Oaks Community Center park to meet him. The victim stated that she saw him pull up, walked over to his car to give him a hug and began a conversation. Sometime during the conversation the two decided to leave, the victim turned to her friend and asked, “Are you comfortable with this?” Her friend responded, “No.”
Polycarpe and the victim left the community center and drove to a wooded area behind the community center, where Polycarpe parked. The victim said it was at that time [he] got out of the vehicle and retrieved a bottle of liquor from the trunk. When Polycarpe returned to the vehicle the victim said he forced her to drink with him.
Polycarpe then asked her to get into the backseat, where she says he asked her to consume more liquor. According to the victim, Polycarpe pulled her out of the car and began pulling down her pants. The victim stated that she told him no, but he was successful because she was to weak from consuming so much alcohol.
The victim told investigators that Polycarpe told her to get on her knees and she did. She said that is when Polycarpe forced her to perform oral sex on him. She said he then stood her up, and finished removing her pants while kissing her. The victim stated they then had sex in the car, but told investigators that Polycarpe did not ejaculate during intercourse. The victim also told investigators that she passed out during the intercourse, and woke up on the ground as Polycarpe was pulling away. The victim described Polycarpe as a light skinned black boy with a crooked eye.
Polycarpe was located at the McDonalds on 484 and transported to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office for questioning. During questioning, Polycarpe admitted to having sex and drinking with the victim, and said [his] encounter with the victim was not forceful in any way. Polycarpe told investigators that the victim told him she was 18.
Polycarpe was not actually charged with Sexual Assault, he was charged with two counts of Lewd and Lascivious Battery and Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor. He is currently being held at the Marion County jail.
