Clifton Powell Cleared In Rape Case

Clifton Powell can officially breathe a sigh of relief. According to Bossip, he has been vindicated in a $150,000 federal civil rape case. The site reports,

Judge Sarah S. Vance last week vacated a default judgment against the “Menace II Society” actor after the court found that his alleged victim, casino cocktail waitress Kiyante Myers, had inconsistencies in her story and that Powell was never properly served with the lawsuit in the first place.

Myers sued Powell back in 2012 for assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress after she said Powell raped her in a New Orleans hotel room the year before. She claimed that the pair had consensual sex, but when he wanted to have sex again she said no because he’s been “too rough” the first time. Myers said Powell eventually coaxed her into another round of intercourse, where he pushed and choked her – and even penetrated her behind with his fingers against her will.
