One of the suspects in the alleged rape of Louisiana State University student Madison Brooks recorded a video saying they were going to rape her, according to the family’s attorney.
Kerry Miller, the attorney for Brooks’ mother, said Fox News Digital that on the recording, from the driver’s seat, 18-year-old Casen Carver can be heard saying, “These guys are crazy.” They will end up raping her.
The clip was played in court after an attorney for another suspect, Desmond Carter, 17, filed a motion to reduce his bail.
Brooks was hit by a car after she was seen leaving the bar where she was working with a group of men early on the morning of January 15.
Miller said videos and evidence from the areas surrounding Reggie’s Bar in Baton Rouge were shown during the hearing, providing insight into what really happened that night.
The Alpha Phi sorority girl, 19, died shortly after being struck by a vehicle at 3 a.m.
Casen Carver, 18 (left), Kaivon Washington, 18 (center), and Everett Lee, 28 (right) were all arrested on rape charges along with Desmond Carter, 17 (not pictured).
No evidence can be made public because of an agreement between the East Baton Rouge District Attorney’s Office and defense attorneys.
The two sides had a disagreement over the leaks after a video surfaced of Brooks slurring his words and apologizing to the four men in the car.
Sculptor; Carter, 18; Everett Lee, 28; and Kaivon Washington, 18, were all charged with Brooks’ alleged rape.
Brooks was drinking at the bar when she was approached by the group.
The video shows the LSU student leaving the bar intoxicated and getting into the car with the four men.
Miller said prosecutors played a video in which Brooks can be heard yelling “Get down.”
Surveillance footage showed the suspects’ car in the same location for about 20 minutes.
Footage released by authorities shows the student running toward the car with the group of men the night she died.
The leaked video shows Brooks appearing to tell one of the suspects to “get out” of the car so she can “Uber herself.”

“You can’t really see what’s going on inside the car through the surveillance camera,” Miller described the footage. “Someone hung a T-shirt on one of the rear windows to block the view of what was happening in the back seat.”
According to Miller, the video shows loud rap music playing the entire time and, at one point, it shows Washington pushing Brooks into the backseat.
Both Washington and Carter admit to having sex with the victim.
At 3 a.m., the defendants dropped Brooks off on the side of the road when she was struck by a rideshare car a short time later.
The driver remained at the scene and bystanders stopped and attempted to help the student.

Documents reveal she had an alcohol level of 0.319 percent and police say she could not have consented to sexual activity.
Ashley Baustert, Brooks’ mother, revealed that the last text her daughter sent her was “I love you!!!” and included a photo with one of her sorority sister’s sons.
Baustert immediately suspected foul play: “I know something was wrong. I know something terrible happened,” she said. “Depending on the circumstances in which she was hit, where she was, the time and the fact that She was alone.”
The judge lowered Carter’s bail to $100,000 and it is unclear whether he was released.
All suspects have pleaded not guilty.
