U.S. Attorney Drops Sexual Assault Charges against David Copperfield
The U.S. Attorney announced recently that the sexual assault investigation against David Copperfield has been dropped. The woman who accused David Copperfield of sexually assaulting her had made a similar claim against another man, and police say there is evidence that she gave false statements to a police officer and engaged in prostitution. According to The Seattle Times, the woman was questioned by cops after a man claimed she tried to charge him for sex.
The police report states that the man claimed she performed oral sex on him in a hotel room in Bellevue, Washington on December 2. According to the report, the woman then told him, “Put $2,000 in my purse and you can have it all.”
He told police that when he refused to ante-up money, she left the room and told hotel workers that she had been “taken advantage of.” The man then called the police and said that he was being extorted. She also called the police, claiming she didn’t remember going to the room and when she came to, that he was assaulting her. Police viewed hotel security video and wrote follow-up reports, questioning the woman’s account.
Even though this case occurred in Seattle, each year there are countless cases of individuals wrongfully accused of and charged with criminal sexual acts in Georgia. In each situation, it is very important that you secure the representation of a skilled Georgia sex crime defense attorney who will be able to utilize evidence to show your good character.
