Prosecutors accuse Albert Haynesworth’s lawyer of attempting to buy off victim in sexual abuse case

Prosecutors in the Albert Haynesworth sexual assault case claim Haynesworth’s attorney has repeatedly tried to buy off the victim.

In a document filed in court Thursday, Prosecutors wrote that on “numerous occasions” Haynesworth’s attorney offered the waitress money to encourage the government to drop the case. The attorney denied the accusation.

“Just not true,” A. Scott Bolden told The Associated Press.

Earlier in the week, Bolden filed a document in court claiming that Ramon Davis, the security guard at the W Hotel in Washington, D.C., who said he witnessed the incident in mid-February was paid $50,000 for his testimony. Davis said in an affidavit that he was paid $50,000, but he also said the man who paid him never mentioned testifying or the victim’s name.

Though Davis said he thought the money was for testimony, Haynesworth’s prosecutors want the allegations excluded because they were speculative only.

A grand jury indicted Haynesworth on April 26 on a charge of misdemeanor assault stemming from an alleged incident at the W Hotel in which Haynesworth was accused of fondling a waitress as she cleared the table, including sliding a credit card inside her bra.
