Clifton Powell Controversies and Sexual Assault
In 2011, a Louisiana woman named Kiayante Myers accused Powell of raping her in a hotel room. The police did not make any progress in the case due to lack of evidence so she proceeded to bring the case to the federal court. The plaintiff and defendant had known each other for about two and a half years when Powell invited her out.
After a night of drinks at W Hotel Bar, both went to The International House Hotel at 221 Camp Street, where Powell was a registered guest. Upon entry into their room, Powell asked the plaintiff to take off her pants so that he could perform oral sex. The two had consensual sex before falling asleep.
When they woke the same day, Clifton Powell asked for more sex but the plaintiff denied him contending that he had been very rough with her last time around. After they failed to agree, Powell is said to have used brutal force, choked her, and forced to call him ‘Monique’.
The court in 2013, ordered Powell to settle the case with 153 thousand dollars. After Powell failed to pay the sum, the plaintiff was back in court where it gave her the authority to cease property from the defendant to settle the debt.
Powell initiated an appeal wherein 2017, a judge ruled that Clifton was innocent and ended the $150,000 federal civil rape case. While dismissing the case, Judge Sarah S. Vance noted that there were inconsistencies in the alleged victim’s story and Clifton did was not properly served with a lawsuit in the initial stages of the case. It is worth noting that the case did not seem to affect Powell’s marriage much.
