Robert Duane Myers (mug shot SCSO)


A former resident of Lampe charged with allegedly forcibly raping his former wife in 2004 has been bound over for trial.

During the preliminary hearing for Robert Duane Myers, 62, of Muskogee, Oklahoma, his ex-wife told the court that a relative discovered the tape in the VCR of another family member.

The woman says she has no recollection of the incident and appears to be drugged in the video.  She also said she did not voluntarily take any intoxicating substance and the sex depicted in the tape was not consensual. 

According to the probable cause statement, “Any substance administered would have been without her knowledge or consent [and] against her will."

She told the court she had cosmetic (eye lid) surgery around Labor Day of 2004 but took all of her pain medication while still in Oklahoma and knows that the sexual assault in her living room had to have taken place shortly after her surgery due to the bruising and swelling on her face.

The Myers' were married in 1978 and divorced in late 2004

Robert Myers' attorney John Lewright asked the woman if she and her former husband had made any other sex tapes.  "Never...not to my knowledge," said the woman.

She said that she didn't immediately turn the tape over to authorities when it was discovered in 2009 because of "humiliation" but eventually did because "I was afraid it was going to happen to other people...like what happened to all the other women on the tape."

Myers, who is free on $50,000 bond, could face anywhere from five years to life in prison if he is convicted of forcible rape. He is scheduled to be arraigned in circuit court on May 6th.
