Lemoore Man Charged with Sexually Assaulting Another Man

A 20-yer-old man is held in a house against his will and sexaully assaulted before escaping.

47-year-old Randy Lee Chiles was placed in a Kings County Jail on Friday with charges of false imprisonment, human trafficking, robbery and sexual assault charges.

Police say this is a serious case of a man being sexually assaulted, beaten and held against his will, but the suspect's wife says its been overblown.

Chiles' wife says that he was only teaching the boy a lesson after stealing their son's iPod. She stands by her husband and insists that he is not guilty of any sex crimes.

Lemoore Police Chief Jeff Laws said, "He escaped from the residence and ran to another residence and asked for help and we do believe he was sexually assaulted while he was tied up in that residence."

Chief Laws also states that the victim was an aquaintance of Chiles, and that he came into the house willingly, but later, was tied up and sexually assaulted.

Neighbors were shocked to hear the charges, stating its "sort of scary being so close to home it's a pretty quiet neighborhood everybody gets along with everybody and not too much happens."

Chiles is being held on $315,000 bail.

Sex and the City Sequal

Why is Sarah Jessica Parker gracing the cover of Vogue's May issue? It just makes since! Vogue picking the same month as the release of her new movie Sex and the City 2 isn't by chance.

With anticipation building for the new movie, Vogue followed Parker(above) during her magazine cover shoot.

Considered a style icon, whether it says Carrie in Sex and the City or whether its just Sarah Jessica Parker turing up to do what shes doing, women of all ages and all cutures see and say, "I want to look like that".

Sarah Jessica Parker decribes how even with a humble childhood her mother would dress the children in dresses making them look like the Kennedys. While admiting they didn't have much money, from that experience she can easily say she "knew what was beautiful".

With the movie's popularity being up 169% this week based on The Internet Movie Database, and the movie already winning a ShoWest Award and Micheal Patrick King directing his sequal to the popular Sex and the City movie in 2008, this follow-up attempt at the addicting 'soap opera' style movie drama is sure to outdue itself.

Leona Lewis and Jennifer Hudson are set to lace the soundtrack with a duet for the movie theme tune. Sex and the City 2 is set to release on May 27th, 2010.
