Samantha Mears Great Falls, Montana woman who forced boyfriend to have sex with her holding machete sentenced to 20 years mental health facility.
A Montana woman who broke into her boyfriend’s house and forced the man to have sex with her while holding a machete to his throat has been committed to a mental health facility as part of her punishment.
Samantha Ray Mears, 20, 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 had 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 and ‘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 the man to get on the bed, remove his clothes while 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.
When the victim had ejaculated he attempted to push her off him to end the intercourse. She subsequently bit him on the left arm and continued to have sex with her victim until he was no longer erect.
When it was over, Mears continued to sit on the bed still armed with a machete with her back against the victim. The victim provided police with several images of her with the weapon in her hand the dailymail reports.
They later had an argument and Mears ripped a large piece of trim from the wall. She then urinated deliberately on the victim’s bed, who according to the man cost him $600 to have replaced.
The victim was able to get out the back door and escape from the home along with his sister, who had arrived home at the time.
Emasculating her male victim:
During questioning, Mears told police that she had ‘consensual intercourse’ with the victim, but ‘was not making much sense and would often ramble on in her answers with information that did not even pertain to my questions,’ an officer noted.
Of note, 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 The Great Falls Tribune reported.
Come Tuesday, Mears was sentenced to 20 years in the custody of the Montana Department of Public Health & Human Services (DPHHS).
She appeared in court via video from the Montana State Hospital in Warm Springs.
Mears was classified as a Tier 2 sex offender and is required to undergo treatment and counseling.
She was also ordered to take all prescribed medications and follow the advice of her medical team, 8KPAX reported.
She had been charged with sexual intercourse without consent, aggravated burglary and criminal mischief.
