Brief summary of events to explain the timeline below

Rick Seaton was accused of rape by KW on December 27, 2010. This timeline lists events that took place during and after the Independence Bowl football game in Shreveport, Louisiana. Rick was Assistant Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) for the City of Shreveport and worked for Mayor Cedric Glover. Rick was monitoring shuttle transportation for visitors to the game since there were numerous complaints the previous year.

Shreveport Police officers noticed KW and her boy friend David Barnhill arguing loudly near the busses. David Barnhill did not cooperate with the police and was arrested for Public Drunkenness. Both SPD Sgt Grant and Rick strongly encouraged KW to go back to her hotel. Rick arranged to have one of the busses make a special trip to take KW to SAMs Town Hotel. KW was placed on three different buses, but did not depart on a bus. KW insisted that she be taken to city jail. KW asked Rick for a ride. He agreed.

After David Barnhill was arrested, his cell phone, pocket knife and other personal items were given to KW. David Barnhill was placed in officer Brazil's patrol car which was equipped with video and audio. After repeated requests, the District Attorney failed to provide video from this patrol car.

Rick drove KW to city jail to allow her to find out information about bonding. Rick then drove KW to Government Plaza for her to use the ATM and a land-line phone, as requested by KW. KW testified that she used two separate restrooms, both equipped with deadbolt locks. She had two cell phones and a knife with her. On the last restroom visit, she also had Rick's access badge. KW testified that she knew this access badge opened every door in the building. KW never attempted to call 911 or make any calls from her cell phones. KW was left alone in the office on more than occasion. KW testified that she was left alone.

KW reported being raped, unbeknownst to Rick, BEFORE sex ever occurred. There was no physical evidence of blood in the office or on the condom. There is absolutely no physical evidence that contradicts Ricks story! KW's testimony contradicts itself and conflicts with physical evidence on multiple occasions.

The sexual assault nurse examiner (SANE) testified that evidence did NOT indicate forced sex, and that there was only evidence of recent sexual activity. Rick agreed that they had sex, but that it was consensual. There was no evidence of a disturbance. There were no bites, scratches, bruises or marks of any kind. KW testified that she had her belly button pierced a few days before this incident and stated that it was red and slightly swollen, but not bleeding.

There is no physical evidence that contradicts Ricks testimony. KW's testimony contradicts itself and physical evidence. All videos and texts messages were provided through the District Attorney as States Evidence. Please review the videos, text messages and timeline, and see for yourself.


KW = Rick Seaton's accuser

Ms Barnes = KW's mother (Kimberly Krabe Barnes)

David Barnhill = KW's boyfriend who was arrested at the Independence Bowl football game. Drunk, disorderly, and resisting police officer

SPD = Shreveport Police Department

Sergeant Grant= A Police sargeant who argued with KW, trying to get her to stop begging to be taken to the jail. KW repeatedly begged both Sgt Grant and Rick to take her to the jail where her boyfriend David Barnhill, was being booked. They asked her to go back to her hotel, and wait at least two hours, and then call the jail (phone number given to her) about bond. Thus, giving them time to book him.

During the trial, Sgt. Grant said that he would explain to KW what she should do and she would turn around, and ask again, the same question..."Can you take me to the jail where David is?" He began to wonder if there wasn't "something wrong" with her, the way she repeatedly asked to be taken to the jail, after he and Rick repeatedly told her to go to her hotel.

Note: KW tries for several minutes to get Jonathan Long to bond out her boyfriend. It is only after he tells KW that he cannot help her, that she tells him, "The guy waiting for me in the white car is going to rape me."

28 Dec at 9:42am KW sent text to Kristie Krabe (relative) “I’m fine though”

Some conclusions to be made from the timeline of facts, and video surveillance:

This means that KW sent the text stating: “…can’t fuck this man no more”, BEFORE even arriving at Government Plaza, and well before sex occurred.

This means that they were still in the Mayor’s Private Office when KW’s mother, Kimberly Barnes, called in the complaint to SPD.This means that KW spoke with a Shreveport Police Officer, using Rick’s office phone, AFTER sex occurred and after her mother called in the complaint. KW made no allegation of rape during that call.

This means that KW spoke with several representatives from bond companies AFTER sex occurred. KW was alone in Ricks office for several of these phone calls.

This means that KW passed, in the lobby of Government Plaza, Lee Theolonius, Caddo Parish employee, AFTER sex occurred. Mr. Theolonius testified that there was no sign of distress.

This means that KW passed, at the front door of Government Plaza, four employees from Red River Air Conditioning AFTER sex occurred. All four testified that there was no sign of distress.

This means that Rick did not go back to the 2nd Floor offices of Government Plaza after he dropped KW off at Sam’s Town Casino, but went to his fifth floor office.

This means that Rick returned back to Government Plaza, after he dropped her off, to get documents from his fifth floor office. He spent a total of 2 minutes and 40 seconds from Garage Elevator to fifth floor back to Garage Elevator.

This means that KW went to the BAR for 7 minutes at Sam’s Town before making contact with SPD and her mother, Kimberly Barnes.
