SEROQUEL: Man accused of drugging, raping Orem woman – UT

NOTE FROM Ann Blake-Tracy (www.drugawareness.org): ALWAYS KEEP IN
MIND THAT THERE IS LITTLE DIFFERENCE IN THESE ATYPICAL ANTIPSYCHOTICS AND SNRI
ANTIDEPRESSANTS. THEY ARE VERY POWERFUL SEROTONIN REUPTAKE INHIBITORS INHIBITING
MULTIPLE SEROTONIN RECEPTORS!!! AND ON TOP OF THAT ARE SEROTONIN AGONISTS
AS WELL.

Police say the drug Christensen gave to the victim was a 300 mg
Seroquel, a medication for which he has prescription. The drug is
given to bipolar disorder and is an antipsychotic
medication.

Police say one of the side effects of the drug is
impaired thinking and reactions, and that people should also avoid alcohol
when taking it.

OREM, Utah (ABC 4 News) – Police say a Utah
County man drugged a woman he met at a bar and raped her.

Police say on
Friday February 12, Orem officers responded to a report of a rape that
had been reported from the night before.

Police say the victim
is a 24-year-old woman from southwest Orem.

According to
police, the victim met 26-year-old Jason Christensen at a bar in
Provo.

Police say both the suspect and alleged victim had been
drinking and went back to her apartment when Christensen gave her a pill to help
her sleep.

After taking the pill, police say the only thing the
victim remembered was waking up for a moment while the
suspect was sexually assaulting her.

After that, police say the
victim doesn’t remember anything for several hours until she woke up and
was undressed.

According to police, Christensen gave the victim the
pill at about 3:00 a.m. on the 11th and she didn’t wake up until 11:00 a.m. the
same day.

Police say the drug Christensen gave to the victim was a
300 mg Seroquel, a medication for which he has prescription.
The drug is given to bipolar disorder and is an
antipsychotic medication.

Police say one of the side effects

of the drug is impaired thinking and reactions, and that people should also
avoid alcohol when taking it.

Detectives caught up with Jason on
Wednesday at the City Center Motel in Provo where he was staying. He was
arrested and charged with Rape and Distribution of a
Prescription.

PROVO ­ The
former finance controller of Mapleton accused of embezzling almost $50,000 from
the city has been ordered held on $25,000 cash-only bail.

Fourth District
Judge James Taylor set the bail Thursday and scheduled an April trial for
Jeannie Bell, 48, who skipped her arraignment on the second-degree felony theft
charge last month and fled to Las Vegas.

Her attorney, Douglas Baxter,
told the judge her client had a bad reaction when she stopped taking an

antidepressant. “She had a panic attack and took off,” he said.

Bell did
not even tell her family where she was going. Her husband reported her missing
and law enforcement tracked her down at a casino on the Las Vegas strip. She was
extradited back to Utah County this week.

Prosecutors say Bell used a
city credit card to purchase stamps and gift cards for employee bonuses, then
sold them on eBay.
