Remember the 18 year old girl who said she was drinking with her Dad in the park at night when five teen boys attacked them with a gun and asked her Dad to leave, then got gang raped by all of them? Well she has admitted in court that the sex with all 5 boys was consensual and that she did infact sleep with her Dad. After her admission, all charges against the boys were dropped.The boys, Denzel Murray, 14, Shaquell Cooper and Ethan Phillip, both 15, and Onandi Brown and Travis Beckford, both 17, have all been let off the hook according to Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson who made the announcement Wednesday afternoon.Thompson said that he hopes the girl 'gets all the support she needs going forward,' adding that victim advocates have been working with her and will provide any assistance she may need in the future.
Working closely with the NYPD, my office has thoroughly investigated disturbing and very serious allegations of a gang rape at gunpoint last month inside the Osborn Playground in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn,' a statement from Thompson's office reads.
'The complainant, as well as her father, provided multiple inconsistent accounts to NYPD Detectives and to experienced Special Victims prosecutors about important material facts in this case.
'The complainant has recanted her allegations of forcible sexual assault and the existence of a gun, and she does not wish to pursue criminal charges against any of the defendants.
'She also refuses to cooperate with any prosecution against her father, who was engaging in sexual conduct with her. That night, this young woman's father and the five young men engaged in conduct that was reprehensible and wrong, but because of the lack of reliable evidence, criminal charges simply cannot be sustained.'
