Complainant in Levin trial stands by his allegations of sexual assault

The original sex assault complainant against former forensic psychiatrist Dr. Aubrey Levin became agitated and frustrated under an intense cross-examination on Monday.

But he never wavered from his allegations that he was molested on the majority of at least 30 occasions between 2002 and 2010 while on court-ordered visits to the psychiatrist.

On one occasion, when pressed about the alleged incidents in March 2010, R.B. told lawyer Chris Archer: “Let’s see you all hopped up on medication and see what happens to you!”

Later, when accused of twice changing his story significantly on the number of times he visited Levin, of which all but three or four resulted on allegedly being assaulted — from 100 occasions in an initial police interview, to 70 at the preliminary hearing to 30 at trial — the witness said he was uncertain of the exact number of visits
“I knew you were going to do this,” he charged. “Can I take a polygraph?”

Finally, when Archer accused him of lying when he said he never erased any video on his Spy Watch video cam, R.B. insisted he didn’t know how to erase but probably taped over previous videos.
“I’m a liar, dishonest. There you go, move on.”

R.B., however, insisted he was sexually assaulted numerous times by the doctor, prompting him to purchase the Spy Watch on March 2, 2010, to record Levin’s alleged assaults.

Those videos were previously shown in court. They showed Levin fondling his genitals for nearly 15 minutes on March 16, 2010.

When told by Archer that he suspected there were some 11 deleted files on the camera when turned over to police, R.B. repeated that he didn’t know how to erase. He said, though, that he was concerned there would be a video of himself having sex with his girlfriend when they were testing the camera to use later at one of Levin’s appointments.

Again, he said he never erased anything or told anyone else to do so.

“No, I recorded over,” said R.B. “I’m told once it’s recorded, it’s always there.”

The witness denied he was celebrating after leaving Levin’s office on March 16, when he recorded the nearly 15-minute incident. When asked how he felt, he replied: “Not bad … I just got assaulted.”

Levin is on trial for sexually assaulting 10 men, most of whom were referred to him through court-ordered probation conditions.

The trial before Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Donna Shelley and jury continues on Tuesday.
