Rape Investigation of David Copperfield Closed

Tuesday, 19 Jan 2010 06:27 PM

 

Federal prosecutors have closed a two-year investigation into rape allegations against magician David Copperfield without filing charges.

The notice came in a brief court document filed Tuesday by Assistant U.S. Attorney Susan Roe.

The woman who made the complaint, a former Miss Washington contestant, said in a related civil lawsuit against Copperfield, whose real name is David Kotkin, that she met him during a performance in Kennewick and was invited to visit his private island in the Bahamas in July 2007.

The woman claimed that once she arrived, Copperfield sexually assaulted her.

The illusionist's lawyers said he denied the allegations and called lawsuit "extortion for money, plain and simple."
