Crum and the woman got into the backseat and Crum asked Meddings to drive to Millstone, a public park about a mile outside of Delbarton.
Crum told police the woman began undressing and they kissed in the backseat. Once at Millstone, they had sex in the backseat, he said. The two officers in the front seat turned up the radio to drown out the noise, according to the report.
The woman never said "no" or "stop" and did not appear to be intoxicated, Crum said, according to the police report. The incident lasted about 15 minutes, he said.
"Crum said he knew it was morally wrong for cheating on his wife, but he did not force sexual activity upon the victim," State Police wrote in their report.
As the group was driving back after the alleged incident, they passed Rosie Crum on the road and Eugene Crum worried he had been caught cheating, according to the report.
Meddings dropped the woman off at her apartment in Delbarton and took Crum back to the bar, where his wife was waiting, according to the report. A bartender allegedly told Rosie Crum that her husband had left the bar with another woman.
Later that morning, the alleged victim went to Williamson Memorial Hospital and reported a sexual assault. She told staff that Crum fondled her even though she said "don't," according to the police report.
Hospital staff called Williamson police, who said they did not take an initial statement because the woman was intoxicated. Williamson police forwarded the case to State Police in Logan County because of Crum's position in Mingo County.
Meddings and Scott told State Police that the sex appeared to be consensual and they did not hear the victim say "no" or "stop" over the sound of their radio. Scott said he heard Crum and the victim discussing something about warrants before they had sex, according to the report.
State Police unsuccessfully tried to contact the alleged victim for months before receiving a handwritten letter from her stating she did not wish to pursue allegations further. However, Rumora suggested later that the woman did in fact wish to pursue the allegations, according to the report.
The State Police report, filed by Trooper S.E. Wolfe, concluded the sex between Crum and the victim was consensual and no laws had been broken.
Later in 2002, Crum was elected Mingo County magistrate, a position he held until last year, when he was elected sheriff. He had served about three months as sheriff before he was killed.
Maynard, the alleged shooter, fled to Delbarton after the shooting, where police said he pointed a gun at Mingo County Sheriff's Deputy Norman Mines. Mines opened fire, hitting Maynard several times.
Besides murder, Maynard also is charged with fleeing and attempted murder for allegedly pointing a gun at Mines.
Sparks said previously that he plans to present Maynard's medical records and several orders of involuntary commitment during Maynard's trial.
