Three minors and four women were assaulted by actor Kaalan Walker
On Monday, 27-year-old actor Kaalan Walker was convicted guilty of sexually abusing many young girls and women dating back to 2013.
Forcible rape, oral copulation assault, statutory rape, and rape by drunkenness were all found guilty by the actor’s jury in “SuperFly,” according to USA Today. His convictions stem from seven victims, three of whom were kids and four of whom were adults.
Jurors found him not guilty of one count of digital penetration and two counts each for two alleged victims, according to KNBC, the Los Angeles NBC station.
This case involves two ladies who didn’t know each other, according to Deputy District Attorney Yasmin Fardghassemi according to KNBC.
“The defendant Kaalan Walker unites all of these women,” she stated in court, according to KNBC.
She went on to say, “You’re going to see a dark side of him.” “When they said ‘Stop,’ he didn’t care.”
Andrew Flier, Walker’s attorney, claimed his client had been “portrayed as a monster.”
According to Flier in court, “The pattern of Mr. Walker is to make false promises and they bought it,” It’s important to remember that each of these ladies made their own choices.
Furthermore, “He didn’t force them,” said Flier. “It’s payback to Mr. Walker and we’re not going to let that happen.”
Walker “maintains his innocence,” Flier said in a statement on Tuesday, claiming that “many important issues were excluded by the Court” and that Walker “did not receive a fair trial.”
On September 11, 2018, Walker was arrested for a string of sexual assaults. “Aspiring models” were approached by Walker on social media and asked if they would want to work with him as a professional model, according to police. According to LAPD at the time, each of the victims alleged that Walker had sexually attacked them.
Nine felony sexual assault accusations against Walker were filed in October 2018, and his bail was set at more than $1 million. After the verdict, he was freed on bail, but detained on Monday, according to KNBC. He might be sentenced to death if convicted.
A trial on aggravating circumstances in the cases is slated on May 27.
