Moorhead, Minn. (WDAY TV) - A registered predatory offender in Moorhead is back behind bars tonight, accused of raping a woman at his home. A 22-year old woman told police she met 28-year old Jesse Paskey at a downtown Fargo bar and went home with him to Moorhead.

She said she fell asleep and woke up to him taking off her clothes. When she tried to stop him, she says Paskey strangled her, held her down and had sex with her, then drove her back to Fargo.

Police arrested Paskey at a Fargo bar. The woman identified him in a line-up. He denies knowing the woman.

Paskey is required to register as a predatory offender after being convicted of false imprisonment in 2010. He faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted of rape.
