A Scottsdale yoga instructor acquitted last year of flashing underage boys at a bar mitzvah and performing a sex act on one teen has filed lawsuits against the parents of the boys and the police officers who investigated the case.
Court records show Lindsey Radomski, 35, is seeking $5 million in damages in addition to at least $100,000 in medical expenses, legal fees and punitive damages from both lawsuits.
Radomski was found innocent of 18 misdemeanor counts by a Scottsdale City Court jury last year. She faced the possibility of up to six months in jail, a $2,500 fine and three years’ probation if convicted.
Authorities alleged a drunken Radomski flashed her newly augmented breasts and invited several underage boys ages 11 to 15 to a bedroom during a party at a north Scottsdale residence in March 2015.
Radomski claimed the parents of the teens didn’t properly supervise them and allowed the boys to drink alcohol. She said one of the boys slipped her an “unknown substance” in her drink and caused her to lose capacity before she was sexually assault by several boys, court documents state.
Scottsdale police were contacted by the boys’ parents and Radomski was arrested.
Criminal charges against Radomski filed by the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office were dropped in April 2015 after a grand jury declined to indict her due to a lack of evidence. A municipal court prosecutor subsequently charged her with several counts of public sexual indecency, contributing to the delinquency of a child and indecent exposure.
Radomski was acquitted in September 2016 following a seven-week trial.
Two civil suits, filed this month, allege the boys sexually assaulted and filmed the 35-year-old as she lay passed out. A complaint filed with the Maricopa County Superior Court also states the parents were negligent, leading the incident to take place.
Radomski alleged in the complaint that what occurred caused her to suffer “substantial economic loss” in addition to incurring several expenses, mental and emotional distress and harm to her reputation.
A second case filed in the U.S. District Court last week claims malicious prosecution against the lead detective and other investigators in the case against Radomski. The suit alleges the detectives failed to adequately investigate the case or collect and preserve exculpatory evidence and testimony.
