Maryland Man Sexually Assaulted Women He Met on Tinder

A former school guidance counselor sexually assaulted women he met on the dating app Tinder.

Colin Black, of Rockville, pleaded guilty Wednesday to attacking a woman. A jury convicted him of a second sexual assault. And a third case is pending. 

A police report one of the victims filed said she asked Black, 35, to stop.

"Get off me. I don't like this," she told police she said.

"It's important to realize that no always means no," Ramon Korionoff, spokesman for the Montgomery County State's Attorney said.  

Black's laptop and home computer showed searches for websites dealing with forced sex, prosecutors said.

Black was banned from Tinder in 2017, according to the company.
