I speculated before that the Sex/Driving/Robbery/Gun/Crash case involving Amanda Linscott had a lot more than meets the eye when I first saw the story. I spoke to Ms. Linscott’s attorney at Brown, Suarez & Rios and confirmed that there was a lot more going on that the media had reported. Crimcourts has now obtained a copy of the actual police report, the Probable Cause Affidavit [PCA], and holy cow the other side of the story is monumental.
According to Detective Korte-Sweede, after Ms. Linscott fled from her accuser, her father flagged down law enforcement to give her side of the story. What you haven’t heard in the media is that Ms. Linscott told deputies that Glenn Aspen instigated the incident by trying to force her to engage in sex acts. That’s a pretty important detail. Additionally, the gun was legally possessed, it belongs to Ms. Linscott’s father and she had a permit to carry it. Also, the Detective found Mr. Aspen to be impaired when she initially responded to the scene.
Coupling these new allegations, with the fact that Ms. Linscott bore injuries from being punched (and from the car crash), we must have serious concerns about the validity of these charges. In fact, if Ms. Linscott’s story is to be believed, she was the victim of an attempted sexual assault that day. Certainly Mr. Aspen committed the offenses of DUI with Property Damage and Leaving the Scene of an Accident and Prostitution. It is difficult to discern what happened inside the car, but we do know that only Ms. Linscott got beat up.
After reading the PCA, I got upset with the media for not including the other half of the story… until I checked the press release from the Sheriff’s Office. Guess what, the Sheriff’s release only told the accuser’s version of the story. The completely left out that Ms. Linscott claimed to be the victim. Sadly, the media just ran with the story, instead of doing a minimal amount of research to report both sides of the story. Crimcourts will keep digging, to provide you with the whole truth.
