Videos show Madison Brooks wasn’t raped and abandoned: lawyer

madi brooks suspects attorney comp

The men charged after the death of Louisiana State University sorority student Madison Brooks recorded video that proves she was neither raped nor dumped on the side of the road, a lawyer representing two of the defendants said.

Attorney Ron Haley told the WAFB that at least one of the four defendants recorded video during the 19-year-old student’s last car ride on Jan. 15, which proves her death was “a tragedy, definitely not a crime. “.

It shows that she “intentionally got into the car” after being dumped by her friends – and then left to catch an Uber before being fatally hit by another car, the lawyer claimed.

Prior to that, she had “consensual sexual acts” with two of the accused – which was “absolutely not rape”, Haley told the WAFB.

Kaivon Washington, 18, and a 17-year-old, who was not identified because of his age, were accused of raping Brooks. Everett Lee, 28, and Casen Carver, 18, are charged with third-degree rape, which means they testified but did not participate.

Haley – who represents Washington and Lee – also claimed that the footage shows that Brooks was not fully drunk at the time and capable of consenting to sex.

“Can you tell she was drunk? Yes. To the point where, under the law, you say you are intoxicated, to the point where you cannot legally give consent or answer questions? This was absolutely not the case,” Haley told the local outlet.

The attorney believes the videos will clear Everett Lee, Kaivon Washington, Casen Carver and the 17-year-old who was not named because of his age.

The lawyer separately told that “the video does not show a sexual act”.

Instead, four clips filmed across Washington show Brooks using “choice language” with Carver as the driver grows increasingly frustrated that she changes her mind about where she wants to be taken.

“That’s it [a] conversation – practically a discussion – between her and the driver”, said the lawyer about four videos recorded by Washington.

“Carver was frustrated because this was the third address she had given and she apparently wanted to go to another location.

Brooks was seen on surveillance footage leaving the bar with the suspects.

“It’s him saying, ‘Listen, we can’t do this all night, decide where you want to be,’” the lawyer said.

“She gets upset with them and uses choice language directed at Carver.

’ After that, he verbally asked her to get out of the vehicle. She nods and says, ‘Okay, I’ll Uber wherever I need to go,'” the lawyer said.

“She left” on her own – and only “after they left” was she “hit by another vehicle”, the lawyer said.

“They didn’t just throw her out of the car,” Haley said. “They didn’t force her out of the vehicle,” she added, saying that one of the videos showed her leaving.

“I think at one point one of the others tries to defuse the situation and say, look, kind of get back in the car. She doesn’t want to,” she stated.

“I want the public to know that these young people … did not put her on the side of the road,” Haley told the WAFB.

Defense attorney Ron Haley was interviewed by the WAFB.
Lawyer Ron Haley told the WAFB that the videos show that Brooks’ death was “a tragedy, definitely not a crime”.

The lawyer emphasized that the trio he represents “expressed their remorse” to him.

“’Nobody wanted her to die, it’s a tragedy and they’re upset,” he said.

“There are no winners in this. … Someone lost their life, these young people could lose their freedom,” he said.

Haley predicted to the WAFB that in-car videos would totally absolve her customers.

However, the Mail said the footage was presented ahead of a bail hearing on Tuesday, where Judge Brad Myers said it showed the “evidence was clear” that there was proof of criminality.

LSU President William Tate called the student’s tragic end “evil”.

“She should not have been taken from us in this way,” he said in a statement.

Reggie’s bar – where the underage group had been drinking that night and where Brooks allegedly worked – had its liquor license revoked.
