The trial of a Seneca County man accused of raping a woman while she was under the influence of sleeping medication will begin Monday in Ontario County Court.Timothy Ward, 35, of 3031 Waterloo-Geneva Road, Waterloo, will stand trial for first-degree rape, first-degree criminal sexual act, third-degree rape and third-degree criminal sexual act before Ontario County Court Judge William Kocher. Ward is accused of engaging in oral and sexual intercourse with the alleged victim while she was physically helpless after taking Ambien, a prescription sleeping pill. The assault allegedly occurred on Oct. 9 at the woman’s home on Outlet Road in Manchester.Rochester defense attorney Aaron Sperano, who was assigned to Ward’s case, said the case is unique because Ward is not accused of forcibly raping the victim. “There wasn’t a use of force, like in typical first-degree rape cases,” Sperano said. Prosecutors assert that the victim was unable to consent to the sex because of the medication she was taking. “Basically, it’s (first-degree rape) with no force and there’s no force because the victim was passed out on medication,” said Assistant District Attorney Jeffrey Taylor. “Thus, she was ‘physically helpless.’” Ward is also charged with third-degree rape, a charge that typically applies when an adult has sex with a minor. However, Taylor said there is a section of the law that applies when someone does not consent to sex.Sperano said his client just wants to get the trial over with because he has remained in custody at Ontario County Jail since his arrest. No one has come forward to pay the $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond to release him, he said.If convicted of the most serious charges of first-degree rape and first-degree criminal sexual act, Ward could be sentenced to between five to 25 years in prison.

Getty Images; AP Photo Tiger Woods is said to have taken Ambien with a mistress before sex, with “crazy” results. But does the sleep aid really heat up the bedroom—and does it make a cheater forget the guilt?
The latest and possibly most bizarre twist in the saga of Tiger Woods and his growing coterie of amours involves the prescription sleep aid Ambien.
Rachel Uchitel, a 34-year-old velvet rope holder and head of VIP operations for a rotating number of popular nightclubs, including Griffin, where she met Woods, reportedly told a friend that she and Woods had “crazy Ambien sex.”
