Rape suspect asks to attend country club, sons’ lacrosse tournaments

Amid the global pandemic, accused rapist Jason Delano appeared via a Zoom court hearing requesting he be allowed to attend a private country club, plus travel to his kids’ out-of-town sporting events.

In December 2017, Delano — a 44-year-old Bethesda resident — allegedly raped a woman he met hours earlier at the Bethesda Country Club. He is awaiting trial in the felony case, which has been repeatedly delayed for myriad reasons, most recently due to COVID-19. [WJLA]
