Well, it has been two years since the first allegations surfaced accusing magician David Copperfield of sexual assault. In that time there have been no criminal charges filed yet, but the alleged victim did file a civil lawsuit against Copperfield. In the suit, the victim claims that while in the Bahamas with Copperfield that she was sexually assaulted and that Copperfield threatened to kill her.
The suit was filed on July 29th. The woman is a model and a former Miss Washington USA contestant. Copperfield's attorneys say the suit is “extortion for money, plain and simple.”
For the past two years I have been thinking about this case and have been wondering if he was ever going to face criminal charges. I think the fact it was in the Bahamas makes it hard. The fact it was a private island in the Bahamas makes it even more difficult. I do hope the woman's case goes to trial so we can at least get some idea of what happened that night on that island. My guess though is Copperfield will pay the woman to walk away and keep her mouth shut. I mean there are other women to invite to the island and he can't have any negative stories coming out about what they might allegedly face if they visit.
