A Pennsylvania man was found guilty of an attempted sexual assault involving one of his wife’s bridesmaids just two days before their wedding.
Daniel Carney was found guilty Thursday in Monroe County court on four charges over the unwanted sexual encounter during his wedding festivities in 2019.
In addition to the attempted sexual assault charge, jurors also convicted him of aggravated indecent assault, indecent assault and simple assault.
He was acquitted on a charge of attempted rape.
Carney’s attorney, Jim Swetz, told People magazine they were disappointed by the outcome of the trial and planned to file an appeal.
Prosecutors argued that Carney, 30, sexually assaulted the female member of his wedding party in the men’s locker room at the Shawnee Inn while she was too drunk to consent to a sexual encounter following a pre-wedding rafting trip.
Carney’s defense claimed the 29-year-old bridesmaid was conscious and knew what she was doing with Carney in the shower.
During the trial, Carney’s wife, Nicole Carney, testified in her husband’s defense, telling the court that when she busted him and her bridesmaid in the locker room shower, the woman was “conscious and aware.”
Carney said from the witness stand Wednesday that the bridesmaid instigated the sexual encounter and followed him into the locker room, where he had gone to take a shower, although prosecutors pointed out that he did not take any bathing items with him.
The bridesmaid said that she came to during the encounter to find Carney biting her hand and grabbing her, according to a criminal complaint. She then blacked out again, and said she later woke up to discover Carney on top of her and her bikini bottom off.
When the bride noticed her groom and bridesmaid’s absence, she went looking for them and found the pair in the locker room shower, according to the complaint. She screamed at Daniel and ran to find her Maid of Honor.
The following morning, Carney called the bridesmaid to apologize, but she told him she felt extremely violated and upset, according to the complaint.
Then on the day of the wedding, Carney texted the bridesmaid to again say he was sorry, and begged her to take an emergency contraceptive pill, according to the document.
Police listened to a call between Carney and the victim, during which he denied they had sex, but admitted that his “d—k was out in the shower.”
“We never did do it, but would you consider taking Plan B to make damn certain just in case?” he allegedly told the woman, referring to a popular brand of the morning-after pill. “There is almost no chance, but still.”
When interviewed by the cops, Carney first claimed he was drunk and felt like he was taken advantage of by the victim, but later he admitted to grabbing her by the arm and pulling her into the locker room, police said.
After the wedding, the bridesmaid reported the incident to the police and went to the hospital to be examined by medics, who found 13 bruises all over her body, according to WFMZ.
Carney’s lawyer claimed the woman suffered the injuries by repeatedly falling into the water during the rafting trip, but prosecutors said that based on her medical evaluation, her condition was consistent with sexual assault.
Carney is out on $750,000 bond pending his sentencing on July 26.

NYC pastor explains how he became involved in subway shooting suspect’s surrender
The politically-connected Brooklyn pastor who said he helped broker the surrender of the man charged with killing Goldman Sachs employee Daniel Enriquez also claims he planned to hand-deliver the suspect to his pal, Mayor Eric Adams, who was supposed to be waiting at the police precinct.
Bishop Lamor Whitehead explained the plan in a Wednesday night phone interview with The Post and said he did “what I needed to do” to “protect the community” from suspect Andrew Abdullah following the unprovoked Sunday shooting of Enriquez aboard a Q train in Manhattan.
Abdullah was ultimately arrested Tuesday outside of the Manhattan Legal Aid Society office after his family took him there instead of NYPD’s 5th Precinct Stationhouse in Chinatown, Whitehead said.
The Canarsie-based Leaders of Tomorrow International Churches bishop’s involvement in Abdullah’s arrest and his relationship to Adams had garnered controversy over the clergyman’s criminal past, and his stated role in the arrest was sharply denied by justice advocates involved.
Whitehead, 44, said Abdullah’s family are congregants of his with whom he has a close relationship, which grew more intimate following the death of a teenage family member.
“His aunt and his mom reached out to me yesterday morning and told me, ‘We don’t know what to do!,’ ” Whitehead said over the phone.
“His Aunt was crying and they needed me to help them through the process. They didn’t know what to do. I told them first of all, he needs to surrender.
“They spoke to him and said that they would call me back and then they called me and said, ‘We trust you Bishop. He’s going to surrender.’ I asked them if they had an attorney and they said they were working with legal aid.”
The bishop said he told the family to have them bring Abdullah, 25, to the precinct, but said the family was adamant that he speak to a lawyer first.
“She said she spoke to the detectives and they hadn’t worked it out yet. I said if you haven’t worked it out yet the detectives will be staking out your office!,” Whitehead recalled, before explaining how he then called Adams, with whom he had appeared at more than a dozen high-profile events in Brooklyn when the mayor was borough president.
“Around 8:30 or 9 a.m., the first guy I called was the mayor,” Whitehead said.
“He said, ‘All right, this young man is alleged to have committed a heinous crime.’ He said he would support me in whatever had to happen for this young man to surrender. He trusted what I had put in place.
“I told him the family was going to meet with him, with the mayor, at the 5th Precinct and he said to keep him updated,” Whitehead said.
Word soon got out among police brass about the surrender and the bishop said he was “inundated” with calls from chiefs, commissioners and detectives.
“The plan was, he was walking in with me and I was going to turn him over to the mayor. The mayor was going to be at the 5th Precinct, because that’s what I set up with the mayor,” Whitehead explained.
“I was against them going to the attorney’s office,” Whitehead said. “They needed to come to the precinct to surrender but I left to go to the attorney’s office. I waited with the aunt and the grandmother and when I went to greet his mother, Abdullah got out of the car and the marshals bum-rushed.”
Whitehead’s account of the arrest was echoed by the Legal Aid Society.
“Before Andrew Abdullah could voluntarily surrender himself to the local precinct, he was needlessly ambushed out front of our Manhattan trial office by City Marshals, denied of his opportunity to first consult with counsel,” lawyers said in a statement.
Whitehead said he then again called his “mentor” Adams, who offered his profusive praise, according to the pastor.
“I called the mayor and let him know that he was in custody. He said ‘thank you. You protected our city. You did something tremendous. Nobody knows what this kid could have done to somebody else. You made it happen.’ “
Whitehead, who was ordained ten years after being busted for a $2 billion identity theft scam for which he served five years in state prison, said his relationship with Adams is based on community service.
“I teach financial literacy to the youths and the community. I do turkey give backs on the holidays, on Christmas and Thanksgiving. A lot of donations, homeless shelters, food and clothing donations, gang prevention, peace walks,” Whitehead said.
“He’s my mentor. We’ve done a lot of work in Brooklyn when he was the Brooklyn borough president. He helped me out a lot.
“My father was Arthur Miller, he inspired Eric to start the 100 Black Officers In Law Enforcement. He was strangled by 16 police officers in 1978. He was the first I can’t breathe, before Eric Gardner”
The flashy minister also shot back at critics who “crucified” the “man of the cloth” for his designer threads and luxury vehicle, which were on full display Sunday.
“I was dressed for the day. I was going to do work for myself and my entrepreneurship but I got the call to help my community. What was I supposed to say? I should go home and change so that they can identify me as a bishop?” he asked.
“It was in my heart to help the city, New York city. So I went with what I had on! I had a Fendi jacket on.”
It’s not the first time Whitehead’s extravagance has raised eyebrows. In 2016, The Post reported he was spotted driving around Brooklyn in a Maserati and a Bentley — despite owing $261,000 for an outstanding 2009 court judgment over an unpaid personal loan.
A Legal Aid Society spokesperson threw cold water on the entire premise of Whitehead’s claims about his involvement with the arrest of Abdullah, who was being held without bail for allegedly randomly killing Enriquez, 48, while he was riding the Q train over the Manhattan Bridge on his way to brunch.
“As far as the pastor, he has no affiliation with the family. He has no affiliation with the legal team and the statements he has made claiming on behalf of the family are untrue,” the society told The Post.
Mayor Adams had previously publicly referred to Whitehead as “my good friend and good brother,” but his office was much more guarded in response to The Post’s inquiry’s about the bishop’s account of Tuesday’s arrest.
“There is a murderer off the street and New Yorkers should be thankful to the NYPD for apprehending this dangerous individual,” spokesman Fabien Levy said.
“As the mayor said yesterday, this is an active case in front of the DA and we’re not going to say anything more that could possibly impede a trial and conviction.”

Naomi Campbell supports Kate Moss after Johnny Depp testimony
Naomi Campbell will always have Kate Moss’ back.
The model took to her Instagram Stories on Wednesday to praise her pal for taking the witness stand on behalf of Johnny Depp and his ongoing legal battle with ex-wife Amber Heard.
“YES WAGON TELL IT !! @ katemossagency,” Campbell, 52, wrote, using the nickname she has used for Moss, 48, for years.
Campbell’s words were accompanied by a screengrab of an article recapping Moss’ statements in court, in which the model denied Heard’s claim that Depp pushed her down a flight of stairs during their ’90s romance.
As previously reported, Moss was called as a rebuttal witness for Depp, 58, in his $50 million defamation lawsuit against Heard, 36. The trial is now in its sixth and final week in Fairfax County Circuit Court in Virginia.
“He never pushed me, kicked me, or threw me down any stairs,” Moss said over video from Gloucester, England.
Moss told jurors that she fell down a flight of stairs and injured herself during a rainy night in Jamaica at the GoldenEye Resort.
“Johnny had left the room before I did, and there had been a rainstorm. And as I left the room, I slid down the stairs and hurt my back,” she testified.
“I screamed because I didn’t know what happened to me and I was in pain. And [Depp] came running back to help me and carried me to my room and got me medical attention.”
Depp’s attorney Ben Chew then asked Moss, “Did Mr. Depp push you in any way down the stairs?”
She asserted, “No.”
Moss was 20 and Depp was 31 when they dated from 1994 until 1997. Following their split, the actor moved on with now-ex Vanessa Paradis. Depp and Paradis, 49, share kids Lily-Rose, 22, and Jack, 20.
Though Moss once described her breakup with Depp as a “nightmare,” she has remained resolutely supportive of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star.
“There’s nobody that’s ever really been able to take care of me,” Moss told Vanity Fair in 2012. “Johnny did for a bit.”

Ari Emanuel to marry Sarah Staudinger in St. Tropez this weekend
Hollywood superagent Ari Emanuel will seal his latest deal this weekend.
Sources confirmed to Page Six that Emanuel — the hard-charging inspiration for Jeremy Piven’s Ari Gold character on the HBO hit “Entourage” — will tie the knot with designer Sarah Staudinger in a star-studded ceremony in St. Tropez, France.
Conveniently, the nuptials will coincide with the end of the nearby Cannes Film Festival.
Insiders told Page Six that guests are already headed to the wedding location for the upcoming festivities.
While the guest list currently remains under wraps, Emanuel is known to rep A-list names including Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Jennifer Garner, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Christian Bale, Whoopi Goldberg, Tobey Maguire, Jake Gyllenhaal, Charlize Theron, Larry David and Joaquin Phoenix. He also previously represented Donald Trump in his “Apprentice” days.
On the family side, his brothers are former mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel and bioethicist Ezekiel Emanuel.
Meanwhile, Staudinger’s fashion line, Staud, has celebrity fans including Kendall Jenner, Lizzo, Bella and Gigi Hadid, Selena Gomez and Margot Robbie.
Page Six exclusively revealed last May that Emanuel and Staudinger got engaged. They started dating in 2018, after he and his first wife, Sarah Addington, filed for divorce after 20 years of marriage. They reportedly separated in 2014, and have three kids together.
Emanuel, 61, and Staudinger, 33, broke up in 2020, then reconciled around the start of 2021. He popped the question after his company, Endeavor, debuted on the stock market, a source told us at the time.
The Brentwood, Calif., home he shared with Addington went on the market last year for $25.9 million, while he bought a 2-acre Beverly Hills estate for $27.5 million in October 2020.
A rep did not comment.
The Wrap was first to report on the Emanuel wedding.
