New York, NY Criminal Defense Lawyer represented the Defendant for Submitting False Sexual Assault Declarations To Court

ROVIER CARRINGTON was sentenced to four years in prison for submitting false declarations to the Court in connection with a civil lawsuit. CARRINGTON previously pled guilty to making a false declaration before a court.

U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said: “Rovier Carrington submitted fake evidence and lied in an effort to win a $100 million sexual assault lawsuit. Carrington now faces prison time for his brazen attempt to manipulate the court system.”

According to the Indictment and statements made in court proceedings and filings:

CARRINGTON filed a civil lawsuit (the “Civil Case”) in which he accused Hollywood executives of sexually assaulting and defrauding him. CARRINGTON sought $100 million in damages in the Civil Case. To support his allegations, CARRINGTON submitted several falsified email chains that purported to show that he had been sexually assaulted and defrauded.

When confronted about those fake emails, CARRINGTON submitted a false affidavit to the Court in the Civil Case, swearing that the emails were real. To cover up his lie, CARRINGTON deleted two of the email accounts, returned the phone he had used to send the emails to Apple, and failed to appear for the Court’s questioning about the emails.

The Court in the Civil Case ultimately dismissed the Civil Case and imposed sanctions on CARRINGTON, ruling, “these emails were fabricated, and that was bad enough, but the deactivation of the accounts, the efforts undertaken to really foreclose what is necessary discovery in this case, and the stream of lies to me, necessitate the sanctions that I am imposing.”

After the Court in the Civil Case imposed those sanctions, CARRINGTON attempted to pursue his claims in another court, violated an injunction issued by the Court in the Civil Case, and accused the Court in the Civil Case of taking bribes.

Then, even after pleading guilty in this case, CARRINGTON filed a lawsuit seeking over $1 billion and making similar allegations.

In addition to the prison term, CARRINGTON, 34, of Los Angeles, California, was sentenced to three years of supervised release.

Mr. Williams praised the outstanding investigative work of the Special Agents of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York.

The case is being handled by the Office’s General Crimes Unit. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Kevin Mead and Thomas S. Burnett are in charge of the prosecution.
