A man has been accused of raping a woman in a Las Vegas hotel room on his wedding day, and his new wife insists she is standing by him.
Omar Delaney, 35, of Fircrest in Tacoma, Washington, was arrested on the morning of April 20, the same day he was due to marry another woman.
He is charged with three counts of sexual assault and one count of lewdness.
When the DailyMail.com reached out for comment on Facebook, bride Tamara Rojas, now known by her married name of Tamara Delaney, commented she is standing by her husband.
The couple appear to be happily married in Facebook posts on both of their profiles.
‘Im happy to tell you everything after the trail [sic]. She verbally consented and is lying. And yes I am still by my husbands side,’ she added.

Delaney, along with his bride-to-be and other wedding attendees, went out to see the sights on the evening of April 19, the day before they were due to get married.
The wedding party visited stops on Fremont Street and the Las Vegas Strip, according to the details of a police report published in the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
A woman says she arrived in Las Vegas on the same date as the wedding party.
She said she drank three shots of vodka during the course of the evening and Delaney offered to walk her back to her room at the Luxor to ensure she returned safely.
She says she felt ‘tipsy’ but did not feel out of control and remained conscious the entire time.
When they returned to her room, Delaney allegedly followed her into the room, performed a sex act on her and raped her.
A key to his accuser’s room was later found by police in Delaney’s hotel room.
Delaney reportedly said he didn’t want to speak to detectives until he had spoken with an attorney.

Delaney went ahead and married his bride, Rojas, on April 21 just hours after he was booked into the Clark County Detention Center.
He was released after posting a $10,000 bail earlier in the day.
