WENATCHEE, Wash. (KTVZ) – A Redmond woman has entered into a plea deal involving a 2021 rape charge in Wenatchee, Washington, and prosecutors are recommending a nine-month prison term.

Cynthia Collier, 52, entered the guilty plea Wednesday to one count of third-degree rape in Chelan County Superior Court, KONA radio reported.

In her plea petition, Collier admitted that while living in Wenatchee, she sexually assaulted a Wenatchee woman who had passed out at her home after a night of drinking.

Collier originally was charged with second-degree rape in 2022 after she move to Redmond.

At the time, the victim told Wenatchee police she had no memory of what happened, but a SANE (sexual assault nurse examiner) exam found evidence of physical trauma.

Collier told police initially that she believed the sexual contact was consensual, but a Wenatchee Police investigator requested the rape charge, saying the victim was incapable of consenting, as she was mentally incapacitated.

Judge Travis Brandt revoked Collier’s release on bail after her entry of plea, and she was jailed pending sentencing, scheduled for April 3. Conditions of Collier's plea deal include a year of parole, a five-year no-contact order with the victim and registering as a sex offender for 10 years after her release, KONA reported.
