Lary Atwood came to Salem with plans to break up Doug and Julie. Larry managed to frame Doug as being involved with a Dope Bust while he stayed in Salem and helped Julie run the club. When Larry had managed to keep Doug out of town long enough he raped Julie at his apartment. Julie didn't tell anyone about the rape until Doug suspected her of having an affair with Larry.
