ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -
St. Petersburg Police officers arrested an Army recruiter accused of raping a 17-year-old girl.
Staff Sgt. Jason M. Reffner, 27, and the girl met in June when she went to a recruiting office in St. Pete. The two exchanged messages on Facebook and began a relationship shortly thereafter.
The two had consensual sex, said the girl, but then she denied a specific sex act Reffner wanted. The girl said he forced her to comply.
Reffner was arrested Tuesday, and released on $40,000 bail.
