Daniel Carney appeared in court.
Daniel Carney (30 years old) from Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA, was charged with inappropriate behavior, he sexually assaulted an unconscious person. It is worth noting that this man committed the crime when he only had 2 days left for his wedding.
The victim said he was groped by Daniel on August 30, 2019 in the town of Smithfield, Pennsylvania. The victim told police that she was in town at the time to prepare for Daniel’s September 1 wedding, where she would take the position of bridesmaid.
During the pre-wedding party, the victim drank vodka and beer while sailing and rafting with a group of friends before returning to the resort. Because she drank too much, she got drunk.
When she woke up, she was startled to find herself in the men’s locker room, the bottom of her bathing suit removed and Daniel lying on top of her. Moments later, Daniel’s fiancé entered the room and witnessed an unexpected scene. Shocked by what she saw, the bride began arguing and fighting with the groom.
Investigators verified the victim’s testimony by viewing surveillance video showing Daniel dragging the victim into the dressing room. At the time, the 29-year-old didn’t appear to be awake.
After the incident, Daniel called repeatedly to apologize to the bridesmaid and asked her to take emergency contraceptive pills. Unable to accept this behavior, the victim reported the incident to the police and went to the hospital to have it checked out.
The process has been quite tense lately. Prosecutors argued that Daniel sexually assaulted the bridesmaids in the motel’s men’s locker room while the victim was intoxicated. However, Daniel’s defense team said the victim was still awake at the time of the incident and had consented to having sex with Daniel.
During the trial, Daniel’s wife also defended her husband, claiming that she did not believe the victim had been raped. She said when she spotted her husband and bridesmaids in the dressing room, the victim was “awake and aware of everything.”
Nicole also believes that the bridesmaids intentionally tried to seduce Daniel and propose sex with him by following him to the dressing room where he was taking a shower. However, prosecutors argued that Daniel did not bring a bathing suit.
Meanwhile, the victim said she had been unconscious for a while, when she regained consciousness she saw Daniel bit her hand and grabbed it. She then fainted, regained consciousness and found Daniel on top of her, the bottom of her two-piece bikini removed.
When questioned by police, Daniel initially said he was drunk and felt he had taken advantage of the victim. He later admitted grabbing the girl’s hand and dragging her into the dressing room.
Medical staff concluded that her body had 13 bruises. Daniel’s attorney said the victim was injured during a previous boat trip, but prosecutors said the condition of the victim’s injuries, based on a medical evaluation, is consistent with the possibility that she was assaulted.
