On Friday, a young Utah woman took to Facebook to allege that on the previous night she was sexually assaulted by Ronnie Radke and some of his friends. Radke has since dismissed the allegations, claiming innocence in the matter. At this time, no arrest record of such an incident has become available.
To add to Radke's case, The PRP received this statement from Slaves guitarist Alex Lyman:
“I was with Ronnie and everyone in the FIR camp the entire day of the Salt Lake City show. before they played we sat on the bus and bullshit back and forth just like every other band in the world does, then he played the show. then we went to the bar and played pool until FIR’s bus call.
If sitting in the front lounge of your bus talking to friends and going to a bar and shooting pool with your friends until bus call is considered gang rape to you, you should maybe focus more on fixing your thought process.
i am 200% absolutely certain that the bullshit on the internet about ronnie is a god damn lie, he’s one of the nicest and most sincere people i know.
if you wanted facts, you just got them.”
The alleged victim in this ordeal (we are not publishing her name to respect her privacy) has since updated her Facebook with the following statement:
“I’m asking for peace and respect during this time. The Utah judicial system is overrun by rape cases and it’s likely I won’t get my kit results back, inconclusive with fluids or not for some time. I am pursuing those who have harassed me online and am SO grateful for the outpouring of support.
When the person accused of attack is very well known the victim is at a major disadvantage. However I will continue to work with law enforcement and my lawyer.
For those of you who have reached out about personal assaults from different people I am still here to talk to and try and strengthen you.”
More info as we get it.
