Attorneys Attack Alleged Victim In Moorhead Sex Tape Case
MOORHEAD (AP) - Attorneys for two hockey players charged with making a sex video with a 15-year-old girl at a Moorhead motel last winter are calling her a "sexual predator" who was competing with another woman to have sex with as many players as possible.
Thomas Carey and Brandon Smith, both 19, were suspended from the USHL's Lincoln Stars in June after they were charged with using a minor in a sexual performance, possession of child pornography and distributing pornography.
Their attorneys have filed papers asking the judge to dismiss the charges for "abuse of prosecutorial discretion." They say justice would not be served by convicting men of felonies and labeling them as sex offenders.
Clay County Attorney Brian Melton denounced the lawyers as "contemptible" for attacking the alleged victim.
