Man accused of rape in New Port Richey

NEW PORT RICHEY

man arrested on charge of sexual battery

A 50-year-old man was arrested Thursday on charges he raped a 35-year-old woman at his mobile home on Golden Loop. William Robert Kalinpoulis allegedly hit the victim on the head Wednesday night and pulled her hair while forcing her to have sex with him, a Pasco Sheriff's Office report says. The victim also had scratches on her back, arms and hands, the report says. Three witnesses told investigators they found the victim outside the home crying for help, the report says. Her name was withheld due to the nature of the charges. Kalinpoulis was charged with one count of sexual battery and is being held at the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $20,000 bail.

The local GOP has received $154,000 in contributions and spent nearly $78,000 since fundraising began in 2007. During the same time, Democrats have raised $32,000, and spent all but $4,500 heading into the final two months of the campaign. The deadline for candidates to file their campaign finance reports was extended one day statewide until midnight tonight because of Tropical Storm Fay.
