Saudi Air Force: accidental sexual assault

"Alotaibi is accused of pulling the boy into a room at the Circus Circus hotel on the Las Vegas Strip on New Year's Eve and sexually assaulting him in the bathroom. Alotaibi had been visiting Las Vegas while temporarily stationed at Lackland Air Force base in Texas.
According to a police report, Alotaibi admitted to engaging in some sexual contact with the boy, calling some of it accidental.
But speaking to reporters outside of court, defense attorney Don Chairez said he would seek to have those statements suppressed as evidence because his client had been drinking heavily.
"Our position is my client was intoxicated. He had been drinking Hennessey from 2 a.m. to 9 a.m. and I think he was incapable of understanding his Miranda rights," Chairez said, referring to the legal right of suspects in custody to remain silent and have an attorney present when being questioned."
