A Lexington Park man has been charged with committing a second-degree sexual offense last weekend after a woman told police that she discovered someone had sex with her after she fell asleep from taking her prescription medicine.

A court commissioner ordered this week that Robert Maurice Scriber, 40, be held in custody in lieu of $50,000 bond.

The woman told police that the medicine she took on Sunday at her Lexington Park home had rendered her incapacitated, court papers state, and that after she was awakened by the suspect, a guest at the residence, she examined herself and had a friend remove the suspect from the home.

The charge against the suspect was filed after law officers contacted the woman at a hospital, where she treated by a sexual assault nurse examiner, according to St. Mary’s detectives.

“Scriber has over 20 criminal convictions on charges including, but not limited to, burglary, assault, [making a] false statement to a police officer and various drug charges,” according to a charges application filed by sheriff’s Cpl. William Raddatz.
