Pennsylvania Groom Found Guilty Attempted Sexual Assault On Wife’s Bridesmaid



Pennsylvania Groom Found Guilty Attempted Sexual Assault On Wife’s Bridesmaid

Groom Convicted For Attempting To Sexually Assault Wife’s Bridesmaid Two Days To Wedding

A Pennslyvania man was found guilty on four charges of attempted sexual assault of one of his wife’s bridesmaids two days before their wedding in Monroe County.

Prosecutors say the attempted sexual assault took place in 2019 when the victim was reportedly intoxicated in a men’s locker room at the Shawnee Inn after a rafting trip.

Daniel Carney reportedly tried to have the victim take a shower with him and was later found by his then-soon-to-be-wife at the time.  According to the New York Post, Carney’s attorney claimed the 29-year-old victim was conscious and knew what she was doing while in the shower with Carney.

On Wednesday, Carney’s wife, Nicole Carney, also testified in his defense and said the victim was very conscious and aware when she caught them in the shower.

During his testimony, he said the bridesmaid allegedly instigated the sexual encounter and followed him into the locker room but prosecutors claim he didn’t bring any items such as soap or towels.

In a criminal complaint, the bridesmaid claimed she woke up to Carney biting her hand and grabbing her. Moments later, she blacked out and woke up to Carney on top of her along with her bikini top removed. Nicole reportedly screamed when she found her then-husband-to-be and the bridesmaid in the locker room.

Carney reportedly called the victim to apologize but she said she very extremely violated due to the incident. On the day of the wedding, he called her and reportedly begged her to take an emergency contraceptive pill. Medics also found multiple bruises on her body but Carney’s defense said the bruises were from when she fell in the shower. However, prosecutors said the injuries were consistent with sexual assault.

Carney was released on a $750,000 bond and his sentencing is scheduled for July 26.
