Teacher, 34, 'flashed boys and performed sex act on 15-year-old at bar mitzvah'
An Arizona yoga instructor accused of flashing young boys at a bar mitzvah before performing sexual acts with a 15-year-old claims she was drugged and even raped by the teens.
Lindsey Ann Radomski, 34, of Scottsdale, was arrested last year after she allegedly allowed several boys - some as young as 11 - to fondle and lick her newly enhanced breasts at the March 22, 2015, celebration.
The court heard she also performed oral sex on one of the boys, then aged 15, after the others left the room.
On Tuesday, Radomski's lawyer, Jocquese Blackwell, claimed his client had been intentionally drugged with GHB by an 18-year-old at the party, NY Daily News reports.
He insisted that his client was also a victim in the incident and that she had been 'raped' by the minors. 'A woman that's incapacitated can't consent to any sexual contact, any sexual assault,' Blackwell said last year.
According to court records, in the early hours of March 22, while most of the bar mitzvah guests were asleep or had gone home, Radomski allegedly invited seven boys, aged 11 to 15, into a bedroom and let them fondle her surgically augmented breasts.
The victim's parents learned of the encounter and went to the police.
Radomski, who teaches yoga in the Scottsdale area, was interviewed two days later. She told authorities that she had been too drunk to remember the incident but did admit to flashing party guests.
She later said she was slipped a date rape drug which was why she cannot recall the incident.
'Ms. Radomski has no memory of what happened in that room and because she has no memory, from her perspective and from my perspective as her attorney, it didn't happen and we'll see what happens in court,' Blackwell told KPNX last year.
Her attorney told a court at a previous hearing that he had a hair test which proves his client was drugged with GHB.
But on Tuesday, the prosecution disagreed, saying that the levels of GHB found in her blood stream were no higher than what would naturally occur in a person's body after analyzing a set of newly obtained blood tests.

Prosecutors also claimed that Radomski had changed her story only when it came apparent she would be charged.
Radomski was initially charged with 21 felony counts, including sexual conduct with a minor, sexual abuse and indecent exposure, but in June last year, a grand jury declined to indict her citing a lack of evidence.
If convicted, the yoga teacher could face more than six months in jail and three years of probation. Her trial is expected to finish next week.
