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."

#23 Well of course sweetie, the moment you men keep it zipped up instead of creating numerous kids because you won't use protection or get it snipped lol!! Since when has a woman been a whore just for having your kid and you being a no good layabout missing father hm?! You father kids, You pay for them until their grown!! As for alimony - well I guess you're either divorced or getting divorced! If men stopped thinking with their balls and used their brain you wouldn't have the problem.
However, I do believe there are some real gold diggers out there who seemingly quietly sneak their way into your lives and before you know it they've got you hog tied lol!! There are also women who will deliberately get pregnant in order to tie you up either personally or financially! Which is why it's about time men learnt from their mistakes and made sure kids couldn't be produced that they didn't want - if you can't do that you can't whine about child support period!!

If she is indeed, convicted of being, a prostitute the statistical chances that she was raped and that her rapist will get away with it go up exponentially.

Prostitutes don't tend to file rape charges for a reason. No one cares if you rape a hooker.

How convenient for Copperfield that he now gets to return the favor in kind and slander this woman and her reputation based on unresolved charges. Creepy.
