DOYLESTOWN, PA. – A judge ruled that a husband could be sued on the charge of forcing a teenage waitress upon receiving his marriage.
Matthew Aimers of Willingboro, New Jersey, arrived in court Thursday in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, with his new wife by his side.
The judge upheld all charges, including indecent assault, indictment, incarceration of a minor and related offenses committed during the November conflict at Northampton Valley Country Club in Richboro.
Aimers' lawyer, Louis Busico, said his client "denies and rejects" the charges of the waitress, who is now 18 years old. He says Aimers' wife, Kayla, "supports him 150%".
An affidavit says that the waitress had rejected Aimers' advances at the reception. Police say that he followed her into a bathroom and assaulted her sexually. He was released from the handcuffed room after a drunken fight.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the accuser testified Thursday and that the viewers were removed from the courtroom.
