Fairfax Accuser Brings Sexual Assault Complaint to Boston D.A.

The media is going to find it harder and harder to downplay this, and to justify downplaying it when they eagerly hyped up Blasey's allegations.

Blasey never specified a date or place or even a year.

And she certainly never went to the DA. She went to... her "beach friends."

A woman who accused Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexually assaulting her in Boston nearly 15 years ago will meet with prosecutors to discuss her allegations, her attorney said Wednesday.

Vanessa Tyson will meet with members of the Suffolk County district attorney’s office to detail her accusations against Fairfax, attorney Debra Katz said in a statement. It came days after District Attorney Rachael Rollins sent a letter to Tyson's legal team to inform them that her office is prepared to investigate should Tyson file a criminal complaint.

"Usually in sexual assault cases we are not public in any way, but this individual chose to self-report and issued a statement and has a law firm and I felt compelled quite frankly to make sure that her firm knew that we stand ready, willing and able to assist in any way possible," Rollins, a Democrat who took office last month, said in an interview Wednesday.

I'm not sure what this alleged crime would be categorized as. Per this site, the Massachusetts statute of limitations for rape or assault with the intent of committing rape is 15 years, so she would just barely get her complaint in before the statute of limitations tolled.

But that's for rape. Other crimes have statutes of limitations of six years.

Per this site, Tyson's allegation could certainly be categorized as "rape" within the Massachusetts criminal code's definition.

In Massachusetts, rape means the penetration of any bodily orifice by any part of the body, or by an object, Performed against the victim's will, without consent, and with the threat of or actual use of force.

Now, the problem is with "the threat of or actual use of force." Now she does allege he "forced" her head down, so arguably that brings it within the definition. At least as far as what she alleges.
