File video: Yoga instructor facing sex abuse charges

The attorney for a 33-year old yoga instructor accused of having oral sex with a 15-year-old boy at a Bar Mitzvah earlier this year said he believes his client was drugged while at the party.

Scottsdale police arrested Lindsey Ann Radomski in March on suspicion of 21 felonies, including sexual conduct with a minor, sexual abuse and indecent exposure after they alleged she had a sexual encounter with seven underage boys.

A grand jury recently declined to indict Radomski and the case was returned to Scottsdale police, according to Sgt. Ben Hoster, a Scottsdale police spokesman.

Radomski told police she did not remember the alleged incident, according to court documents.

Jocquese Blackwell, Radomski’s attorney, said Wednesday that his client could not recall what happened that night because someone at the party gave her a “date rape drug.” Blackwell said he does not know who gave Radomski the drug.

Radomski disputes police accounts, Blackwell said, and she wants to speak publicly about the case but he’s advised her against it.

That the investigation was returned to Scottsdale police without indictment was “not a surprise to me,” Blackwell said, “not at all.”

The criminal inquiry of Radomski is ongoing and Scottsdale police detectives can either follow the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office’s suggestions for additional investigation or take the case to Scottsdale city court, Hoster said.

If the case goes to city court, Radomski would face misdemeanor charges, Hoster said. Scottsdale police had also submitted two counts of misdemeanor indecent exposure against Radomski.

A search warrant affidavit shows detectives gathered biological samples from Radomski. As of Tuesday night, Blackwell had yet to receive word on whether the DNA analysis had been completed.

Scottsdale police alleged in court records that Radomski recently had breast augmentation surgery and exposed herself to adults and children at a Bar Mitzvah celebration attended by 80 to 100 people.

After the other adults had left the party or had gone to sleep, police said, Radomski invited seven boys into a room and let them fondle her breasts.

All but one of the boys left the room, and investigators said Radomski performed oral sex on a 15-year-old.

The next day, when the mother of one of the boys called Radomski to confront her, police allege that Radomski recalled exposing her breasts at the party but did not remember anything that took place in the room because she had been drinking, according to court records.

Radomski later told police it was possible that she had engaged in sexual activity with the boys in the room but also said alcohol clouded her memory, according to court documents.

Jerry Cobb, a Maricopa County Attorney’s Office spokesman, declined to discuss grand jury deliberations when asked for comment Tuesday, citing department policy.
