A Long Island speech therapist claims that an Australian sheep farmer who picked her up at a bar in 2005 drugged and raped her in a midtown hotel. The 28-year-old woman, who was not identified, admitted to jurors on Wednesday that she had had at least six drinks at two West Village bars with sheep farmer David Green, but believes he must have slipped her a roofie that led to her being "lights out." She claims she woke up in the middle of the night at the Affinia Hotel with Green "on top of me and having sex with me."
Green, the nephew of Sirius satellite radio executive James Meyer, was arrested initially after the incident, but was let go on bail; he fled the country after he was released, and was only extradited back to NYC last year. His lawyer claims the woman was drunk, which caused her to black out, and that she seduced sheep farmer Green with pickup lines such as, "You have a great Australian accent. That deserves a kiss." But the woman, who also admitted to being in therapy for cocaine addiction that summer, said she had some experience blacking out, and that she "never felt like I was drugged like I felt that night."
