A day before the rescheduled preliminary investigation of the case charged against him, young actor Baron Geisler reportedly filed a countercharge against his complainant Patricia Martinez.
In his unjust vexation charge filed at the Department of Justice (DOJ), Baron reasoned out that Patricia has no basis for the acts of lasciviousness case charged against him. He added that the complaint of the daughter of celebrity couple Yayo Aguila and William Martinez was made to destroy his image.
Baron also explained that Patricia was constantly going near him while they were in Fiamma Bar in Makati City. He said that he was forced to push Patricia that led him to accidentally touch her breasts, which was one of the complaints of the 21-year-old complainant.
Baron initially defended himself in an interview last April 28 by saying that he was simply "acting out" a new role he's about to portray.
He said, "Ako, mahilig ako na kapag may bago akong role like bading, ginagawa ko to my friends and asking for their approval. Ito bagong role ko na manyak. Siguro she [Patricia] took it a wrong way. Di ba, parang kapamilya? So akala ko ay maiintindihan niya na naglalaro ako as a character. E, galing ako sa workshop, so yun lang."
Last May 23, Baron failed to show up at the preliminary investigation of the case against him. Instead he asked the prosecutor to reset the schedule of the investigation for him to have more time to submit a counter-affidavit. (Click here to read related article)
Patricia's father William Martinez stressed in earlier reports that their family will not allow any settlement because they want to teach Baron a lesson.
