St. Louis-Area Man Accused of Sexual Torture
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis-area man is accused of sexually torturing five women in his apartment over several years.
Authorities on Tuesday announced that 29-year-old Adam Michael Capriglione of south St. Louis County is facing 19 felony charges that include forcible rape, forcible sodomy, felonious restraint and domestic assault. He's jailed on $500,000 bond.
Police spokesman Brian Schellman says an investigation began after one of the victims contacted police in January. Capriglione is accused of raping, sodomizing and torturing five women dating back to 2006.
He also faces one count of sexual exploitation of a minor for allegedly filming a child having sex in 2007.
Capriglione's attorney, Joseph Green, says facts will come to light in support of his client as the case moves forward.
