    TACOMA, Wash. -- A man accused of raping a woman who was working as an escort is blaming his behavior on his experience as a soldier in Iraq, KIRO 7 Eyewitness News reported.

    Dagan Walters, 27, of Olympia, arranged to meet a call girl at a Tacoma motel, police said.

    He allegedly took her captive at knifepoint, taped her mouth shut and raped her.

    She escaped by grabbing the knife and fleeing the motel room.

    His defense attorney said when Walters came home from the war in Iraq, he suffered post traumatic stress and alcohol abuse.

    Walters' family is trying to get him admitted to a veterans' hospital.

    Walters is under a suicide watch at the Pierce County Jail.

    Kinda makes me want to commit a crime, then blame it on not being able to pray in school or something.

    Being a Vietnam era veteran...we all heard this as it related to drug problems...
    hey to be blunt the vet's who were addicted to drugs during my era came into the military with the problem...and to now blame sex crimes on service is like dejavue all over again...now I suppose these idiots will drain the medical benefits from those who truly deserve them!
