“So what was the young man doing with you in a hotel room?”

ROY CRAIG, CHARGED WITH SEXUAL ASSAULT 

“I don’t know; what happened is that the young man came from after the guys win the shot at the ball court at Yabra. This young man followed me to the car; I tell him you can’t go with me I am going to work.

ROY CRAIG, CHARGED WITH SEXUAL ASSAULT 

“Well what happened when I’m going to the hotel room I don’t trust this young man because he looks like he is a little psychopathic in a way of his behavior so when I go into the hotel room I locked him out the car because I don’t trust him to leave him in the car. When I going upstairs when I pay my room to go upstairs they give me the key and all and here he comes running behind me and it draws a suspicion.”

HIPOLITO NOVELO, LOVE NEWS REPORTER
