A man was arrested for the brutal sexual assault of a woman.

The former officer of the Connecticut State Police, has been charged with raping an 81-year-old woman, but his lawyer insists that his relationship was consensual.

43-year-old Jeffrey Laporto, is married and a father of two children of Windsor.

He is facing two counts of first-degree sexual assault and one count of first-degree unlawful restraint.

The victim was seen with Laporto, at the Quality Inn on Route 45 in Windsor Locks, before the two went into the woman’s room.

The victim’s son called police about two hours later to report the rape. Police said that the octogenarian was taken to a hospital for treatment of “extensive internal injuries.”

During his court appearance on Monday, the attorney for Laporto, Donald Papcsy, told the judge that his client and the alleged victim were seen drinking together in a bar before they went into her room.

Papcsy also said his client has no criminal record and is a veteran of the U.S. Navy. He served in both Operation Desert Storm and Operation Desert Shield.

Laporto was released from jail after posting $250,000 bail.
