I'll tell you scored his back in session on the docket today David Copperfield legal troubles.
According to TMZ dot com sources say the magician has used -- show.
To pick up women using code words to alert his team which gal he wants from the audience.
And then asking -- women if they like the Bahamas that's where he has a fifty million dollar state.
All this as reports come out.
From The National Enquirer I should underscore.
About the alleged victim in a sexual assault possible case against him.
So what does -- all mean and I do think the charges actually what -- the -- actually wind up bringing rape charges against David Copperfield.
Let's ask our panel former prosecutor John Q Kelly and Fox News legal analyst -- -- good morning pretty neat all right so.
Let's start with that with the latter with his national enquirer report.
-- -- different -- -- -- but you know that sometimes their rights they say that this visit his alleged victim was a 21 year old woman.
Who he did bring to the Bahamas who he allegedly raped at his estate.
Who would then who resisted who has bruises all over her who took pictures of the alleged crime -- and then immediately flew back to Seattle and went to the cops -- if that's true.
Do you expect rape charges and and what would would they get a conviction do you think well.
Make -- first others that legacy here you know Kobe Bryant and the duke rape case I think we're all taking these cases all these three cases or allegations against you know celebrities.
With with an extra grain of salt and -- that.
That being said I used to work with the FBI agents there in Seattle -- work with them for five years as a federal prosecutor they are excellent top notch investigators.
They would not have gone and gotten the search -- got the probable cause unless they thought there was at least something to investigate this our viewers know because it bit the FBI searched his warehouse right reflect -- magic and they think that they some very interestingly they said we did not sees that two million dollars it's been so -- sort of bandied about if they say they didn't -- two million dollars I believe it.
But what's interesting to me is the defense lawyer for Copperfield.
Is on the one hand saying well Copperfield has never you know thrown himself -- anyone it's if there was sex was consensual.
He's out on the record saying that but he doesn't but he doesn't deny that there was a settlement offer of two million dollars which is maybe where that two million dollar comes from -- get it is that very interesting -- African -- Well here's a problem first of all -- the most appropriate jurisdiction would have been in the Bahamas but she chose not to report it.
At the time the alleged crime was committed and left their jurisdiction so.
They can't prosecute the case anymore she's back in Seattle and you know that gives it to the jurisdiction of -- the interstate -- the FBI.
And quite frankly -- -- I don't think -- the point to bother wants it fully investigate this if it's just it she said she said in my.
Long term prediction is this is going to end up in a civil suit you know criminal prosecution.
Very interesting outlook let let's talk about the yet as the information that comes -- TMZ dot com.
Look at more credible because they actually had a clip from a woman who's making these allegations that she got plucked out of the crowd.
That he uses these code words to get the lovely ladies on the stage is this at all relevant to the sexual assault investigation links.
It could be if you can show that other women were sort of tease out you know brought in and ask these questions and afloat -- to the Bahamas -- where there's one.
Real rate of real allegation there may be others and other women that haven't come forward.
But if it bit it you know besides that honestly Megyn I don't think -- kind of -- you he would have to do that but it's not illegal.
That isn't the only way on this recently and -- -- I want now please.
This is no news flash that performers -- rock stars you know.
Like to do a little -- to trolling you know during their extra afterwards -- -- nets weren't you know groupies came from -- is just sort of always like for the fact that David Copperfield may have you know pursued you know an attractive person after -- I don't think he has any relevance whatsoever to this particular instance.
Yeah I think you're -- -- of the senate and -- I'm getting to get out more Megan.
What's right -- you just talk after the fifth I love know cities and just.
-- for being here with us the tape online order for our viewers at this point the details in this case are very sketchy we do not over the accuser is we cannot assess your credibility.
And the lessons of the past council against an unfounded.
Rushed to judge wouldn't minimize -- and I have -- theory on this course you do have a lot of theories that we know.
David -- -- an illusionist has anyone seen him since these allegations about a week ago.
We just got an have you seen a picture of them went -- -- I don't know he made -- -- I do not know but his lawyer responded to the allegations first saying that a lot of people.
Make false sorry a lot of people make accusations against famous people put it -- he's like no I didn't.
Not a pleasant man after all.
-- -- in 44 minutes past the hour.
