ORANGE, Conn. (AP) -- The lawyer for two punk rockers in a Michigan-based band says they're innocent of allegations they raped a woman at a Connecticut house party and plan to take the case to trial.
New Haven lawyer Diane Polan says her clients, 29-year-old Quentin Price of New Orleans and 29-year-old Uriah Baker of Lansing, Mich., insist they had consensual sex with the woman at a party in the town of Orange after their band, Goddamn Gallows, performed in New Haven last month.
Polan said this week that the case will go to trial unless the first-degree sexual assault charges are dropped. She says both men are free on $75,000 bail, but they can't leave the state and are staying with friends in New Haven.
They're to return to court Sept. 14.
Prosecutors and police declined to comment.
