Marko Boskovic, an assistant tennis coach at Drury University and foreign national from the country of Serbia, has been charged with a Class C Felony of rape in the second degree by the Greene County Prosecuting Attorney Dan Patterson.
Boskovic is accused of raping a pre-medical student who attends the university, located in Springfield. Both were attending a party on campus on the night of May 6th into the morning of May 7th.
According to the Springfield Police Department’s probable cause statement, Boskovic and his accuser left the party, where both had been drinking. Boskovic accompanied his accuser back to her apartment, when she said she couldn’t find her keys. Boskovic offered his apartment as a place where she could spend the night and she agreed.
Boskovic gave his accuser a shirt and shorts to change into, and then climbed into bed with her naked from the waist down. The accuser, known as R.K. in the report, told Boskovic to wear a condom, which he compiled. The accuser then sat up in bed and attempted to push Boskovic away as he grabbed her neck and pushed her on the bed and proceeded to have sex without her consent.
Bond was set at $50,000 and the court considers Boskovic a flight risk.
