The woman who accused David Copperfield of sexually assaulting her has just been indicted on charges of making a false statement to a public servant and prostitution.

The woman -- Lacey Carroll -- claimed Copperfield raped her on his private island back in 2007. Federal prosecutors pulled the plug on the investigation two weeks ago after her credibility was called into serious question.

Now the Bellevue City Prosecutor's Office in Washington filed charges against her in connection with a December 2, 2009 incident involving another man. Authorities say Carroll met the man in a bar and went to his hotel room. As they began having sex she allegedly told him, "Put $2,000 in my purse and you can have it all." The man says when he refused to fork over the money, she told police he had forced himself upon her.

Shortly after making the report, she refused to cooperate, claiming she had another case going (Copperfield) and felt the new claim would "tarnish the other case."

Authorities didn't believe her and charged her with filing a false police report and prostitution.

David Copperfield's attorney, Patty Eakes, says, "These developments vindicate Mr. Copperfield and confirm what he has said all along -- this woman tried to extort money from him by making a false claim."

In my country, it's legal to SELL sex, but not to BUY it.
This is because the relationship between seller and buyer is not seen as equal.

This single, rich & good looking man wants to have sex, huge surprise huh? He tries to be discrete & these whores want more money & extort him. These bitches either agree to terms or they don't, no one holds a gun to their heads. You do if or you turn the man down.

for me instead of paying her 2000$ then i will just donate it to haitian community...you can donate via text, phone or through the "Hope for Haiti" Web site,www.hopeforhaitinow.org, for the next six months. Among the organizations who will receive funds from the telethon include Oxfam America, UNICEF, and the Clinton-Bush Haiti Foundation please check this video..

SO, here's what I'm wondering. This woman is a prostitute. And Copperfield is a magician. Did David tell her he'd give her $2,000 for a wonderful night, and then when she went to check her purse, that money magically disappeared? Think about all the possibilities there. He can hand her a wad (no pun intended) of bills, and then they end up back in his pockets.

If she realizes he pulls his magic tricks (the 'trick' pun is intended) he can possibly pull quarters out of her ears (and possibly other body parts).

I'm here all week, folks. Try the veal and tip the waitresses.

I am definitely seeing the clouds over the head of David. It looks quite surprising that David unnecessarily provoked the controversy. He needs to come forward cease it.

Maybe one day men will figure out they need to think with brains, and not their other heads.

Good for David! Always believed in his innocence; because he's too goodlooking and too rich to have to rape anyone. He can just get who he wants without all the miserable stuff thrown in!

I have no idea what happened, and maybe DC is totally innocent.

But remember that rich good-looking people can be jerks too, and lying prostitutes can actually be raped.

#28 Actually it's you who is the idiot, a prostitute always has the right to say no and to choose who she/he has sex with!! Just being a prostitute does not make the person any less of a human being and does not give them fewer rights as to who they have sex with! Legally they can still claim rape, it's just that people like you don't believe it can happen!!
Their profession doesn't mean any b****** can rape them and claim in self defense, well hey she's a hooker she can't say no!!
