Federal jury doesn't buy sex slave allegations
On Thursday evening, a federal court jury in Chicago returned a Not Guilty verdict in a civil lawsuit that featured some ugly allegations made by an ex-wife against her former husband. Kimberly O’Brien alleged that her former husband, Kevin Anderson, had forced her to walk around their homes wearing only heels and address him as “Master”. O’Brien also alleged Anderson had tied her up and sexually assaulted her. Ms. O’Brien is shown below [photo courtesy of the Chicago SunTimes].
Anderson denied all allegations. Additionally, he alleged that O’Brien was an unstable woman who had instigated the unusual sexual behavior. Finally, Anderson alleged O’Brien was just trying to get at his money. The case had garnered lots of attention both in Chicago and across the country.
The jury deliberated 4.5 hours before returning a verdict for Anderson.
