Groom Sexually Assaults Bridesmaid Days Before Wedding, Asks Her To Be 'Happy' For His Bride, Says Report

The affidavit alleges that the groom-to-be, Daniel Carney, grabbed one of the bridesmaids while she was intoxicated, and pulled her into the men’s locker room.

Just two days before his wedding, a 28-year-old man from Pennsylvania allegedly sexually assaulted one of his future wife’s bridesmaids before he was stopped when his wife walked in, reports People. A probable cause affidavit states the alleged assault took place on August 30, after the entire bridal party spent a whole day drinking and rafting on the Delaware River.  The affidavit alleges that the groom-to-be, Daniel Carney, of Stroudsburg, grabbed one of the bridesmaids while she was intoxicated, and pulled her into the men’s locker room at the Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort in Shawnee on Delaware.



 

The 29-year-old woman reported the alleged attack only the day after the wedding, where she alleged to state police that Carney had assaulted her in the locker room’s shower. Carney allegedly told investigators he was highly intoxicated on the night of the alleged assault, according to the affidavit. The woman claims to have lost her consciousness because she was intoxicated but woke up to a sharp pain as Carney allegedly bit her and groped her. 



 

She claims she lost consciousness again, but woke up, only to find Carney atop her. According to the affidavit, Carney’s now-wife interrupted the alleged assault and started reprimanding him. A fight between the couple followed out in the resort’s parking lot, but they got married two days later, the affidavit states. Police reviewed surveillance footage that allegedly confirmed aspects of the alleged victim’s story.



 

Also, detectives went through Carney's messages, the ones he sent to the alleged victim. Through the messages, he was found asking both for her forgiveness and that she take emergency day-after contraception. I wanted to apologize again for everything. Can we please just be as happy as possible for [the bride] today? Mistakes are behind us and I just need total closure before I do this [that is] why I’m sending this. I’m as happy as ever to marry [the bride] and I know this is terrible as well but my d— was out in the shower.



 

We never did do it but would you consider taking plan b to make damn certain just in case? There is almost no chance but still. Please tell me yes I’m begging you, the message read, according to the affidavit Carney was charged last week with involuntary deviate sexual intercourse of an unconscious person, simple assault and indecent assault. He is yet to appear in court to plead to the charges. Police said he has not yet been arraigned.



 

People were completely disturbed by what happened. Jennifer Lee Munson took to social media to share: This is so disturbing. I hope the bridesmaid gets justice for the assault. that friendship is over the moment the bride married the groom and let's hope this bridesmaid didn’t attend the wedding ..the hell if I would have reprimanded him .. I would have left him at the altar. Total bs .. the bride will probably be by his side at the trial
