Attorney: Ronaldo rape report documents altered, fabricated

first_imgFILE – In this Oct. 6, 2018, file photo, Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo warms up prior to a soccer match against Udinese, in Udine, Italy. Ronaldo’s new Las Vegas lawyer is calling documents cited in media reports about a woman’s claim that he raped her in 2009 “complete fabrications,” and says the encounter was consensual. (AP Photo/Antonio Calanni, file)LAS VEGAS— Cristiano Ronaldo’s new Las Vegas criminal defense lawyer went on the attack Wednesday, saying documents cited in media reports about a rape claim against the soccer star were “complete fabrications” and the encounter was consensual.In a statement , attorney Peter S. Christiansen blamed reports about the 2009 encounter on electronic data leaks of documents that he said were stolen by a hacker from law firms and other entities in Europe and then put up for sale.ADVERTISEMENT Ronaldo “is accustomed to being the subject of press attention that goes along with being famous,” Christiansen said.But the statement called it “absolutely deplorable that any media outlet would support or advance such an elaborate and deliberate defamation campaign based on stolen, easily manipulated digital documents.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissThe statement acknowledged that Ronaldo and Kathryn Mayorga reached a non-disclosure agreement in 2010 after their encounter in Las Vegas.Mayorga’s attorneys, Leslie Stovall and Larissa Drohobyczer, did not immediately respond to telephone, email and text messages. Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Christiansen declined to comment further.Drohobyczer said previously that Mayorga never wanted her name made public but became worried that she would be identified after a 2017 media report apparently referred to the encounter at the Palms Hotel and Casino.In August, her attorneys asked Las Vegas police to reopen an investigation that had been closed in 2009 without charges.The lawyers followed with the lawsuit about two weeks ago.Police have refused to release documents, citing the reopened case, and have not commented about progress in the investigation.Stovall and Drohobyczer have said a Las Vegas psychiatrist diagnosed Mayorga with post-traumatic stress and depression “caused by Cristiano Ronaldo’s sexual assault in 2009.”The attorneys said she was “emotionally fragile,” out of the country and would not be interviewed by media.The psychiatrist, Norton Roitman, has testified numerous times as an expert witness in state court in Las Vegas. His office issued a statement to The Associated Press saying his role in the case does not permit him to publicly comment.Christiansen replaced high-profile criminal defense attorneys David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld as Ronaldo’s legal representative in Las Vegas.Ronaldo’s attorney in Berlin, Christian Schertz, has refused comment about the rape allegation. He threatened to sue after the German magazine Der Spiegel reported on the lawsuit, saying the article violated Ronaldo’s personal rights.

Some sponsors, including Nike and video game maker EA Sports, have expressed concern about the rape allegation.Mayorga, 34, a former model, filed a lawsuit on Sept. 27 in Nevada acknowledging that she accepted $375,000 to keep quiet about the encounter with Ronaldo in a hotel penthouse.The lawsuit seeks to void the agreement that her lawyers say she signed under pressure from “fixers” trying to protect the reputation of Ronaldo. The lawsuit also seeks monetary damages of at least $200,000.“Given the breach of that agreement by the other side and the inflammatory accusations that have been lodged in the ensuing days, Mr. Ronaldo feels compelled to no longer stand silent,” Christiansen said in his statement.“To absolve any doubt, Mr. Ronaldo has always maintained, as he does today, that what occurred in 2009 in Las Vegas was consensual in nature,” it said. “The documents which purportedly contain statements by Mr. Ronaldo and have been reported in the media are complete fabrications.”ADVERTISEMENT Gov’t to employ 6,000 displaced by Taal LATEST STORIEScenter_img Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum MOST READ Phivolcs: Slim probability of Taal Volcano caldera eruption Telephone calls to Der Spiegel on Wednesday went to voicemail.The Associated Press does not generally name people who say they are victims of sex crimes, but Mayorga gave consent through her lawyers to make her name public.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

If Lucas is sold Liverpool fans want to see one of these six stars sign

first_imgLiverpool still seem likely to do some more business before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.One man on his way out appears to be Lucas Leiva as Brendan Rodgers attempts to complete his squad overhaul.SHOULD LIVERPOOL SELL LUCAS? VOTE HEREThe Brazilian wasn’t even on the bench for the trip to Stoke, despite Emre Can being named as sub, leaving Jordan Henderson in the holding role.The new Liverpool captain didn’t look entirely at home in the position, curtailing as it did his natural tendency to make runs into the final third.So who would Reds fans like to see Rodgers bring in to bolster the club’s defensive midfield options?We’ve been taking the pulse of Liverpool supporters and come up with a wish list of popular suggested targets.Check out the midfield stars Liverpool supporters want to replace Lucas Leiva by clicking the right arrow above… 6. William Carvalho (Sporting Lisbon) – Is he the man to replace Lucas, offer competition to Emre Can and free up Henderson from the holding role? Click the right arrow above for more midfielders Liverpool fans want to sign… – The Portuguese midfielder has been linked with several Premier League switches over his short career so far. Manchester United and Arsenal failed to make their interest concrete and that means he’s available for Liverpool to grab. His displays at the European Under-21 Championship earned him plenty of respect but will mean a big transfer fee. Another problem is the player is currently out injured, so a move is perhaps more likely in January. 6 2. Lars Bender (Bayer Leverkusen) – Click the right arrow above for more midfielders Liverpool fans want to sign… – Arsenal were linked with an £18m bid earlier in the summer for the German international, who has spent six seasons with Leverkusen. Injuries saw him play less last year but he’s still a key player and was named captain this summer – although this is likely to scupper any potential move to Liverpool. 6 6 4. Victor Wanyama (Southampton) – Click the right arrow above for more midfielders Liverpool fans want to sign… – Yep, watch out Ronald Koeman. Liverpool fans want another of your stars. This time it’s Kenyan star Wanyama. He’s a destroyer but he’s got a bit of class too, although Rodgers is likely to prefer someone more renowned for their passing. A deal with Southampton may well be hard to strike though. 6 6 3. Asier Illarramendi (Real Madrid) – Click the right arrow above for more midfielders Liverpool fans want to sign… – Not so much tackling from this man, although that’s not to say he isn’t capable. Illarramendi is more likely to get the attacks started with his smart passing game. Starts are rare to come by with Real so a move could be possible, the bidding was around £14m earlier this year so around £20m could seal a switch. 6 5. Ignacio Camacho (Malaga) – Click the right arrow above for more midfielders Liverpool fans want to sign… – The Spanish star has had a couple of injury problems and this saw him miss out on a move to Valencia in the summer. But Liverpool could sneak in and nab the midfielder on the cheap if they approach the deal correctly. If they fancy a punt, Camacho might be a no frills safe bet to shore up their midfield and fit in with Brendan Rodgers’ philosophy at Anfield. 1. Maxime Gonalons (Lyon) – This might be a bit of long shot considering his commitment to his current side but there is no doubt Gonalons would be an excellent addition. He’s neat and tidy with the ball at his feet but is also exceptional at break up play. He’s an all-round who would add real steel to the Reds’ midfield. Liverpool fans might not be too fond of him, mind you. His first professional goal helped Lyon beat them in the Champions League back in 2009.last_img read more

Castro to stand trial in murder

first_imgThe .380-caliber automatic handgun used to shoot Castro at the Sierra Highway location where his body was found has not been located. Lopez said that casings found at that location match two bullets recovered from Castro’s body. Linens from the bed where investigators believe Castro was bludgeoned also were not found. A bloodied pipe with tool marks similar to those found on Castro’s body was found in the bed of the landscaping truck. Lopez said that the pipe has not yet been fingerprinted. Castro is scheduled to return May 2 to court for arraignment. carol.rock@dailynews.com (661)257-5252160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

One was described as “a tall, skinny, dark-skinned guy” who one witness said he saw helping Castro carry a heavy black plastic garbage bag to Ramon Castro’s work truck. The other was a young man wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt who drove a black car, with Esperanza Castro as a passenger, hours before Ramon Castro’s body was found in his abandoned pickup truck. Detectives have said that since Castro was found dead on March 23, and his wife was arrested the next morning, they don’t believe she acted alone. Lopez, who testified Tuesday, said that blood smears on the work truck were consistent with a neighbor’s testimony regarding a large, unwieldy bag that Esperanza and her male companion loaded into the passenger compartment of the truck. “There were blood smears on both the driver- and passenger-side doors, on the tailgate, the bumper and the tow bar,” Lopez told the court. Inside the truck, Lopez said, there was blood on the seat, the dashboard, the floor mats and the steering wheel. He also said that Ramon Castro’s body had two gloved handprints on its back, which might have been left as the body was rolled into the bed of the truck to close the tailgate. SAN FERNANDO – A Canyon Country woman was ordered Tuesday to stand trial for the murder of her husband, charges that make her eligible for the death penalty if convicted. After three days of testimony in a preliminary hearing, Judge Burt Pines ordered Esperanza Castro be tried on counts of murder and conspiracy with special circumstances. Castro is the only suspect in custody right now and is being held on $2 million bail. But investigators admit that they are still looking for at least two other individuals who they believe helped her complete the crime. “Our investigation continues,” said homicide detective Richard Lopez. “We believe she had as-yet-unidentified accomplices. And they know who they are.” last_img read more

Live Stats SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Drake University women’s soccer team fell to Missouri State, 1-0, on Saturday afternoon in Springfield. Anna Durnin scored the decisive goal for the Bears in the 27th minute with a laser into the top-right corner of the net. She recorded a game-high four shots and three shots on target. Missouri State’s Jordan Eickelman controlled the ball near the left edge of the 18-yard box before centering a pass to Durnin, who took a touch before unleashing the eventual game-winner.”Missouri State is undefeated at home for a reason,” said Drake head coach Lindsey Horner. “We competed really well, did a good job of building the play, and connected with our target player the way we wanted, but lacked the cutting edge in the final third.”Junior goalkeeper Kelsie Stone made seven saves between the posts for the Bulldogs, none better than her sprawling effort in the 58th minute. Stone spoiled a strike by Durnin, reacting quickly and leaping to her left to deflect the shot, getting just enough on it to force the ball off the crossbar.”Kelsie Stone had a great game, and it had to be a special shot that was going to beat her,” Horner said. “Hannah Bormann put in a great shift and drove the team forward throughout.”center_img Watch Live Full Schedule Roster Next Game: Drake (3-8-1, 0-2-0 MVC) travels to Evansville next Saturday for a 3 p.m. kick.”We need to continue to build on this performance going into the Evansville game where we need to get points on the road,” Horner said. Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more

SINN FÉIN HAIL GREEK ELECTION VICTORY FOR ANTI-AUSTERITY SYRIZA
