In this article, you will get all the information regarding Attorney for two men charged in alleged rape of LSU student fatally struck by car claims video proves she wasn’t incapacitated

A lawyer for two men accused of raping a Louisiana State University student before dropping her off on a road where she was then fatally hit by a car says video of the alleged sexual assault proves she was in a “coherent state” and consented to the acts.

Madison Brooks, 19, died Jan. 15 after a vehicle hit her as she stood on a dark road in Baton Rouge. The East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office has since arrested four men for allegedly raping or witnessing the rape of Brooks before dropping her off near the crash site.

Kaivon Deondre Washington, 18, and a 17-year-old man who has not been identified because he is a minor face third-degree rape in the heinous case, while Mr Washington’s uncle Everette Lee, 28, and Casen Carver, 18, have been charged with primary rape, an arrest warrant obtained by KSLA declared.

Ron Haley, an attorney for Mr Washington and the minor, disputed the charges, saying video of the incident showed Brooks “was intoxicated”, but did not point out that she could not “legally give consent or answer questions” when having sex with the suspects. . Mr Haley said she got out of the vehicle after an ‘argument’.

“Absolutely not at all. Listen, this is a tragedy, certainly not a crime,” Mr Haley said KSLA. “Can you tell she was drunk, yes. To the point, under the law, that you say you’re in a drunken stupor, to the point that you can’t legally give consent or answer questions, that absolutely wasn’t the case.

Mr Haley also said Brooks allegedly told suspects she was going to order an Uber after an argument.

“Based on a disagreement, she got out of the vehicle. She indicated she was getting an Uber,” Mr. Haley alleged. “I want the public to know that these young men or really the driver of the vehicle and the young men who were there did not put her on the side of the road.”

Brooks’ blood alcohol level was four times the legal limit at the time of his death.

Investigators say the victim and the four suspects met at a bar on January 14 before she allegedly asked them to drop her off. Mr. Carver told authorities that Mr. Washington and the unidentified minor asked the victim to have sex with them, but admitted that she was drunk, tripped and she articulated her words.

After the attack, the men dropped her off in a neighborhood near Pelican Lakes Parkway. While standing in a dark section of the roadway around 3 a.m., Brooks was struck by a vehicle and died hours later in hospital.

Footage of the bar seized by investigators reportedly showed her falling in front of at least one of the suspects several times before they left the business.

Mr Carver told police Brooks was ‘very unsteady on his feet, was unable to keep his balance and was unable to speak clearly without articulating his words’.

Despite being drunk, two of the suspects had sex with her inside the car, Mr Carver told police. He later said he “felt uncomfortable and hated it”.

When asked by investigators if he thought Brooks was too altered to consent, Mr Carver reportedly replied: “I guess.”

An autopsy confirmed Brooks had injuries consistent with sexual assault, the warrant says.

LSU President William F Tate said the university plans to investigate why the establishment where the victim met the suspects was serving alcohol to minors.

“Madison was a daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, classmate and friend to many of you. By all accounts, she was an incredible young woman with limitless potential,” said Mr. Tate said in a statement.

“She shouldn’t have been taken from us like this. What happened to him is evil, and our legal system will do justice.

He continued: “In the coming days, we will be calling a meeting with these business owners to discuss the direct impact of their responsibilities on the safety of our students. We will openly work against any company that does not join us in our efforts to create a safer environment for our students. Enough is enough.”

Brooks was a member of LSU’s Alpha Phi chapter. A post about the group Facebook page said some of his organs were donated.

“Madison…had a lasting impact on all of us. She was also a hero and was able to donate her heart and kidneys to save others,” the post read.

“We send our deepest condolences to his family and friends during this incredibly difficult time. And we respectfully ask for time and space so that we can support each other in our healing process.
