The complaint

In the complaint, filed in November last year, the girl said she did not remember the ride in Luke’s pickup truck to the colonial-style Armstrong mansion in the neighborhood of Old Enfield and that when she woke up, she found the boy having sex with her on the sofa, adding that in December of 2020, during a phone call, the same boy had admitted that he had had sexual intercourse with her at his father’s house.

The defence

But the very nature of the relationship would be controversial: again according to the sworn statement, in fact, the alleged victim he would tell a friend that June evening the sex had been “consensual”, while four of the six people to whom the girl later told the incident told the police that, crying, she had described the relationship as “non-consensual” and two of them also pointed out that he “still had nightmares” years after the attack. “What happened three years ago in high school was not a crime or sexual violence – explained the boy’s lawyer, Randy Leavitt, on TV -. At the time it was a consensual relationship between two young people, which always continued consensually until they broke up. It wasn’t a one night thing, they had some sort of relationship for a short period of time. These allegations should not have been brought forward and certainly not three years later, but a full examination of the facts will confirm that what was claimed, it’s not actually happened and an adequate trial will exonerate Luke. ‘
