-- Kelly sort of back in session on the docket today uncle Jesse.
Accused of having an inappropriate rendezvous with an under age girl.
Tinsel town pretty boy John -- most vehemently denying that he had a fling with a seventeen year old girl accusing her instead.
Of extorting him.
He says this young woman and her boyfriend.
Both tried to extort more than half a million dollars from the one -- star of full house and ER.
The to stay most of the seventeen year old -- at a club.
Says she says that he invited her back to his hotel room gave her drugs and booze that they -- got into a hot tub and then he made his move.
Then it turns out this gal and her boyfriend.
Demanded a whole bunch of money.
To prevent photos.
From winding up in the hands of the paparazzi they are now on trial for extortion -- How does this case come out let's ask our panel former prosecutor John still -- and defense attorney David Ball.
All right panel so so it's not sustain us is not trouble with the -- -- all its big gal who's now 23 and her boyfriend and David.
Tell exactly how this unfolded.
Well Department of Defense saying very simply -- -- -- went down to Florida in 2004 and met the seventeen year old girl.
Now he Metairie club and apparently water alcohol in Florida that's a violation a lot -- misdemeanor the very least they chose to ignore that they're not prosecuting for that.
Then as you said he got a situation where they got the hot -- he tried to have sex are -- then spent the night what are assuming that means he had sex with their.
In Florida that is a felony making he's forty at the time she's seventeen that prosecutors chose to ignore -- Instead they're prosecuting her the victim in those two cases saying that she tried to get money from him.
To sort of conceal these photos that she had to make it extortion have to be a wallet -- threat.
To ruin someone's reputation in this case they apparently lawfully had those photos.
And isn't very simply we're gonna sell -- the tabloids -- will sell them to you.
And -- that's not a -- All right Jonathan of that is that's.
That the view.
From the defendant's lawyer here to defend and we got her picture Allison cost.
This is the seventeen year old is now 23 year old who claims she was in the hot tub with famous and he offered sex and so on and so forth and then as she tried to allegedly extort him what is the US attorney saying in fact -- cost it.
Here's the key fact the pictures that don't exist and never gave up what happened inside -- hotel exactly but of anything that might have happened inside that hotel room so now they're.
Creating something out of whole -- and mind you it's.
Years later that they had day the boyfriend in this class acts this team.
I goes to the defendant's residence searches for the photo -- question can't.
Behind them there in the highs the -- and added to cry and now that.
Is relevant because the defense kiddie extortion.
Allegation is we weren't trying to extort him we're gonna sell the photos -- we're gonna some of the paparazzi -- -- -- -- 680000 dollars.
If the photos don't exist then they weren't gonna sell the photos of the paparazzi and the threats to John stay most that you know you better pay -- 700 grand if you want these photos.
Would have been extortion note David.
Yeah -- -- but listen to this I've got to believe those photos actually existed because if they didn't.
What are they gonna use to get 680000.
Dollars just from state holiday money aren't they have had something.
They get the money first mentally I just don't buy that in this case -- this is a party that took place at a hotel room.
Apparently there's a photo at least one showing -- leaning over -- table.
There was full of drugs.
I got to believe something exists and you have to have that leverage to sell something to someone either either the tabloids or -- -- so what may have happened.
Is the photos with was destroyed when made it to the F.
No -- -- -- probably don't -- -- -- says -- -- I don't know I don't think there'll always just I don't and then there -- marketing that around and that the FBI must have lost them.
Or did something to them -- let me tell you the thing that comes back to me in this case -- if they were so innocent if they see if this is a couple that said.
You know you -- -- like that idea but that's that's what we're gonna do you know Allison saying he took advantage of -- -- -- -- and make some some money off of it and that's true then why did they go through this elaborate.
Drop the money in the bag at the airport and little did they know they weren't dealing with -- most is representative guy dealing with an undercover FBI agent but if you're on the up and up you say okay you -- -- -- the 700 grant.
Get it -- you check offensively.
Right coming in this reminds me of the David Letterman.
Scam when you know have a legitimate meeting and that's make the exchange and that didn't happen this is equivalent of -- know giving somebody -- -- money and on the outside you have behind the dollar bill underneath it all singles.
There were a couple of pictures -- John they most.
Indie company of this person which were not illegal war anyway so -- -- That's automatic as far as if everybody does well when he was separated -- now ex wife Rebecca well I think.
I did it I guess they may get -- -- got butter -- -- felonies were allegedly committed against this child child at times seventeen.
And they work environment so they -- a problem -- mind.
In my mind you know Megan why -- those ignored and the second thing this is different than Letterman because Letterman the -- defendant that he's actually got into a diary.
To find out this information so that was information wrongfully obtained.
If these photos exist and I believe under these circumstances they give the attorney certainly represented the jury.
That they existed if they exist that it was not extortion because it was not a -- -- Well again it is CNN within it -- stay Moses side seems to be admitting that he did have.
A relationship with her apparently -- emails between state most in this girl that go over a couple of years she calls them flirty emails but.
That's a whole other question about whether that -- whether they have pictures of him doing drugs -- god knows what else in the hotel room pictures which.
Have yet to be found and will not be introduced in evidence are John and David thanks so much.
-- our partners I don't know what happened in a hotel room but it certainly sounds like John -- most was a victim here.
They were just trying to get it is -- sell him incriminating photos for nearly 700000 dollars and a drop location in an airport and it's gonna open up.
I don't think so I say good for John -- -- for defending this case even though he knew his reputation was gonna take a hit the law is the law.
