I'm just a gay gigolo, says the Saudi national now on trial in a horrendous, Upper West Side kidnap and sex torture case.
"It is rough sex for money between two consenting adults who both may have had a little too much to drink," the defense lawyer for Naief Al-mateiry told a Manhattan felony jury this morning.
Al-mateiry, 26, is fighting charges of kidnapping and rape brought by a 70-year-old freelance consultant who says he was beaten, held captive and repeatedly sodomized in his own west 90s apartment during a gay-date rape from hell 14 months ago.
Both sides agree the two men met at the upscale, east side piano bar Townhouse on a winter night in 2009.
"The defendant told [the victim] that he'd like him to be his daddy-o," prosecutor Maxine Rosenthal told the jury in opening statements.
"Well, I'll be your daddy, but I won't be your sugar daddy," the prosecutor said the older man answered.
But once back at the victim's apartment, Al-mateiry allegedly transformed into a sexual terrorist, choking the victim, raping him repeatedly, beating him with a broken hanger and sodomizing him with a three-foot-long shoe-horn, Rosenthal said.
Al-mateiry then forced him to two neighborhood ATMs -- insisting he had a knife -- and had him withdraw a total of $1,200.
Defense lawyer Henry Asbill dismissed any violence as "consensual, routine S&M" and called the victim a flat out liar.
Why lie? Asbill hinted that the day after the encounter, Al-mateiry returned to the building, and mistakenly knocked on the door of the victim's estranged wife, who lives in the same building.
The Saudi embassy had initially offered to post Al-mateiry's entire $50,000 bail, an offer rejected by Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Charles Solomon. He remains held in lieu of that bail.
It is unclear whether the Saudi government is paying for his three-member, high-power Washington-based defense team. He faces a maximum of 25 years prison and deportation to his decidedly not-gay-friendly native country if convicted.
