A Georgia man accused of raping a woman is denying the claim because he feels he is too “good looking” to rape.
According to The New York Daily News, Darrious Mathis refuses to admit that he raped a woman three years ago in Atlanta, Georgia and maintains that he is too attractive to need to rape anyone. His lawyers are using that claim with the drive to clear his name.
Mathis’ attorneys have stated in their deposition that the accused rapist does not need to rape anyone because of his ‘sexy appearance’ and that the victim even gave him her phone number. According to Time, the victim gave Mathis her phone number because she was afraid.
During the trial, the victim, now 24 years old, testified against Mathis about what happened on a late night three years ago in a CVS parking lot and how she tried to get away from her gun wielding assailant.
"He had told me to get in the car and I actually begged him to take my car. I had pushed my wallet that was in my hand and my keys toward him and I was like 'Please take my car. You can take my cards and everything,'" she told the court.
Mathis’ attorneys have stated that that night went nothing like the victim describes. The attorneys have told the court that Mathis used his good looks to approach the victim and offered to sell her drugs.
"He walked up to her with a bottle of Vicodin and said, 'Wanna buy some pills?' She said, 'Sure, get in. We'll go to the ATM,'" defense attorney Carter Clayton said.
Mathis was reportedly tried in September for the same attack, however, the judge declared a mistrial after the jurors deliberated for too long and ultimately ended up deadlocked 11 to 1 for conviction.
Mathis has been charged with sexual assault, carjacking, kidnapping, theft and weapon possession.
