Controversial young actor Baron Geisler failed to show up earlier today, May 23, at the preliminary investigation of the acts of lasciviousness charged against him by the daughter of celebrity couple Yayo Aguila and William Martinez, Patricia Martinez.
According to GMA News, Baron Geisler, through his representative, asked prosecutor Amanda Felipe of the Justice Department if he could be given more time to submit a counter-affidavit.
Prosecutor Felipe granted Baron's request and reset the schedule of the investigation to June 13 at 10 a.m.
In the postponed preliminary investigation, Patricia Maree Aguila Martinez, 21, was accompanied by her father William, who reiterated that their family is determined to pursue the case, come what may. He also stressed that the family will not allow for any settlement because they really want to teach Baron a lesson.
Last month, Patricia filed a complaint against Baron for allegedly inviting her to have sex with him and then touching her breasts. The incident reportedly happened at the Fiamma Bar on Jupiter Street in Makati City last April 25. (Click here to read related article)
In an interview, Patricia narrated, "Bilangin ko daw ang pera niya, he asked me kung may boyfriend na ako, sabi ko oo, inulit niya ang tanong, sinagot ko uli, tapos sabi niya mag-sex tayo. Niyakap niya ako nang mahigpit, ginamit ko na lang panangga ulo ko, tapos hinawakan niya face ko, tapos breast ko."
On the other hand, Baron defended himself in an interview with dzMM's Showbiz Mismo on April 28, the same day Patricia filed her complaint at the Women and Children's Desk Office in Camp Crame, Quezon City.
The former child star explained, "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 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."
