Thomas Ravenel opted not to show up in court today. Thomas Ravenel’s sexual assault case was handled by his attorney Cameron Blazer. Police detectives presented Thomas Ravenel’s sexual assault probable cause case to Judge Stephen Harris.
Nanny Dawn was in the courtroom but did not have to testify today. Instead, the lead detective presented her graphic testimony about her attack. Including other evidence that ultimately led Ravenel to be arrested and charged with assault and battery second degree.
Blazer attempted to have the case throw out by claiming it was a “he said, she said” case. The detective presented evidence from Dawn’s old cellphone including photos of her injuries from the assault. Dawn also told several people about the attack at the time including her family and Kathryn Dennis.
Ravenel’s attorney pointed out that there were issues with retrieving the data from Nanny Dawn’s old phone. The judge determined that there was enough evidence to rule that there was probable cause for the sexual assualt arrest.
So, Thomas Ravenel is headed to trial. And, he will actually have to show up.
