MISSOULA – A Missoula man has been charged with rape after being accused of sexually assaulting his roommate.

Anthony Rex Hoskinson, 41, is charged with one felony count of sexual intercourse without consent.

Court documents state that Missoula Police responded to a report of a sexual assault on Dec. 31, 2017, on the 1500 block of North Russell Street. When police arrived, the woman reported to police her roommate, Hoskinson, raped her the night prior. 

The woman — referred to as Jane Doe in court papers — reported she was not in a romantic relationship with the defendant and sometimes slept in the bed in Hoskinson’s room as “that was the only mattress in the apartment.”

Doe indicated to police her and Hoskinson had been drinking on the night of Dec. 30 and reported she woke up to find the defendant on top of her sexually assaulting her. 

Doe told police she never consented to such an act through words or conduct, claiming she said “no” and attempted to push the defendant off of her. Doe said Hoskinson did not comply initially but said she was eventually able to push him off of her.

Hoskinson admitted to police that Doe had told him that she was not interested in a romantic relationship with him when she moved into the apartment. The defendant also admitted that it was clear to him that Doe did not want to have sex with him prior to going to bed on Dec. 30.

Hoskinson told police he did not recall having sex with Doe on that night but said, “if I did it would be wrong.”

Hoskinson is expected to make his first court appearance on the felony rape charge Wednesday afternoon in Missoula Justice Court.
