The caller turned out to be Tarrant County jailer Charles Starkey.The nine-year member of the jail staff resigned last month because of errands he did for Sera.Pierce said she escaped rape or worse."Who would come back if they had a chance to be in Mexico with one last victim? Questioning The Past The videotape forced many women to search for pieces of a puzzle they hadn't known existed.Sera traveled to Missouri in September 1996 to play the big-spending big brother.The former Irving resident is accused of drugging four victims in three states last fall with a powerful illegal sedative and videotaping three methodical rapes.Sera has said he is guilty of nothing worse than bad judgment in taping a 32-year-old Colleyville woman, a 26-year-old Arkansas woman and his sister-in-law, 18, then a college freshman.Police say they found the drug at the suspect's home.Sera, whose divorce became final last month, said she discovered Rohypnol pills and other sedatives in her husband's belongings four months before stumbling onto the tape.
"Depends how kinky they want to behave."No one would be arguing whether Sera is a misunderstood amateur pornographer if he hadn't left the tape in the camera."The victims wouldn't even know they'd been raped without the tape," said Joe Wray, the prosecuting attorney in far southeastern Arkansas, a state known for its strict penalties for rape."Big Shot From Dallas'Barring delays, Sera's trial will start in March in the timber and tomato town of Warren, where townspeople are angry and incredulous about the "big shot from Dallas."Prosecutors hope to "stack" any prison terms against Sera with possible convictions in Tarrant County and Springfield, Mo. When she moved out April 1, she said, she was convinced her husband was having an affair.He took his sister-in-law, who had known him since she was 10, and three classmates to Branson, Mo., in an alcohol-stocked limo for dinner.On the way back, the woman felt strange after one or two drinks, Spooner said."Her brother-in-law said he'd take care of her, and nobody suspected anything," he said.guilty, and he's not," said Mark Rosenfield, one of Sera's attorneys, who insists the damning tape can't be used under court rules because no one can guarantee its authenticity. Instead, it was later given to police after one victim was identified as the Colleyville woman who dated Sera.In lawsuits, the Missouri woman seeks more than million, and Deal, who thinks she was drugged and raped three times, requests at least million."Not many people are stupid enough to tape themselves engaging in wrongful conduct," said Jack Spooner, the Missouri woman's attorney. All you have to do is show it to the jury."Defense attorney Hall has a different view of the images on the tape."A woman who's supposedly unconscious wakes up and wraps her legs around him," he said. He was arrested on the Tarrant County charge June 26 but paid a 0,000 cash bond the same day. At the salon that week, Sera introduced Pierce to his sister, Jennifer Kirby, and said she was carrying ,000 in cash for him. Kirby answered and told Pierce that her brother said they'd been dating -- a lie according to Pierce.
