A music executive — already facing a slew of sexual assault charges — was arraigned on Monday for allegedly filming himself sexually violating an unconscious woman in his Lower Manhattan apartment.
Adam Lublin, 43, was charged with molesting a young woman inside of his Battery Park apartment and snapping at least five photos “depicting genitals” of the woman “who appears to be asleep,'' Assistant District Attorney Elizabeth Clerkin said in court, according to The New York Daily News.
“Not guilty,” the accused executive pleaded Monday in Manhattan Supreme Court to charges of first-degree sexual abuse and multiple counts of unlawful surveillance.
The specific charge brought against Lublin involves subjecting another person to sexual contact when the other person is “incapable of consent by reason of being physically helpless,” according to the city’s penal code.
The alleged victim said she had “no memory” of returning to Lublin’s home and didn’t give consent allowing him to take any photos or videos.
After the hearing, Lublin was released without bail, the Daily News reported.
The former vice president for music entertainment event powerhouse AEG had already been entangled in other separate criminal sexual cases involving multiple women.
In two previous incidents — on Sept. 8 and 15 — Lublin is accused of sneaking into a neighbor's apartment and sexually attacking two women and pilfering their underwear.
Lublin is fighting those charges and had been released after posting a more than $1 million bail bond on Nov. 4 and promised to abide by a 7 p.m. curfew, The New York Post reported.
Manhattan prosecutors also allege that on Nov. 22, 2015, Lublin engaged in a “non-consensual touching” incident with a “sleeping coworker” inside an Upper East Side Manhattan apartment, the publication reported. The victim in that case had allowed the exec to crash at her apartment, only to wake up to allegedly find “the defendant’s fingers inside her vagina.”
