    A 36-year-old Atlanta man was convicted of raping a woman he had met on a commuter train after pretending to be gay to gain her trust.
    Both perpetrator and victim were African American.

    The victim is a lesbian and had a female partner at the time. The perpetrator led the victim to believe he was gay, so she was under the impression that their relationship was strictly platonic.

    Weeks later, the woman missed the last bus of the night, so the man offered to drive her home. He then claimed that he needed to stop at his house to pick up marijuana, and the victim followed him into his home. The victim thought they were going to Callagain's bedroom to smoke marijuana, but instead he began to strangle her and proceeded to violently sexually assault her, according to the district attorney's office. The victim said that the man told her that if she fought or screamed, "I will get my boys to come in and hold you down."

    After the assault, the victim escaped and ran 3 miles in the middle of the night to her home. She later went to a hospital to seek treatment and called police.

    In Georgia, a rape conviction can carry a sentence of 25 years in prison to the death penalty.
