A day before the rescheduled preliminary investigation ofthe case charged against him, young actor Baron Geisler reportedly filed acountercharge against his complainant Patricia Martinez.
In his unjust vexation charge filed at the Department ofJustice (DOJ), Baron reasoned out that Patricia has no basis for the acts oflasciviousness case charged against him. He added that the complaint of the daughter of celebrity couple YayoAguila and William Martinez was made to destroy his image.
Baron also explained that Patricia was constantly going nearhim while they were in Fiamma Bar in Makati City. He said that he was forced to push Patricia that led him toaccidentally touch her breasts, which was one of the complaints of the21-year-old complainant.
Baron initially defended himself in an interview last April28 by saying that he was simply "acting out" a new role he'sabout to portray.
He said, "Ako, mahilig ako na kapag may bago akong role likebading, ginagawa ko to my friends and asking for their approval. Ito bagongrole ko na manyak. Siguro she [Patricia] took it a wrong way. Di ba, parangkapamilya? 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 preliminaryinvestigation of the case against him. Instead he asked the prosecutor to reset the schedule of theinvestigation for him to have more time to submit a counter-affidavit. (Clickhere to read related article)
