The woman testified they went to her house in Guthrie. Venable said the sexual contact was “100 percent consensual,” according to the affidavit.
His attorney, Carl Hughes, argued at the preliminary hearing that the woman was not in custody and was free to leave when they arrived at her house. Hert ruled against Venable and said the victim was in his legal custody.
Hughes said he is disappointed with the ruling and will renew a motion to dismiss the case in district court.
Patrol Lt. Jason Holt testified in January that Venable was honest with investigators about the June 20 incident.
He said the former trooper also told them he has had sex several times while on duty.
Venable gave patrol investigators details about at least two other sexual encounters he had while he was working, Holt testified.
