Intimidating a victim
That investigation was dropped when more victims couldn’t be found.Then last year, Victim A discovered for the first time that two other women also claimed to have been raped by Masterson, which motivated her to go to law enforcement for the first time, eventually sparking the LAPD investigation of allegations by all three women.UPDATE: Yashar Ali has now published that piece we were anticipating, and it’s killer. Yashar also reveals that during the investigation, a fourth victim came forward, a woman who was never a Scientologist.What is Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey waiting for?Masterson has denied the allegations through his representatives, and he hired renowned criminal defense attorney Tom Mesereau.After nearly a year since Victim A came forward, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office has not decided whether to file charges.Yesterday, the Los Angeles Times reported that six women, including actresses Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge, are accusing director Brett Ratner of sexual misconduct, the latest in what is becoming a crisis for Hollywood since similar accusations were made against producer Harvey Weinstein in stories appearing last month in the New York Times and the New Yorker magazine. Ratner for two decades, and no woman has ever made a claim against him for sexual misconduct or sexual harassment,” Singer said in a 10-page letter to The Times.
Carol Nyburg has not seen her daughter Nancy in 1,904 days.Claire Headley has not seen her mother Gen in 2,320 days.Ramana Dienes-Browning has not seen her mother Jancis in 676 days.We think it gives a pretty good indication of what the hundreds of women coming forward in recent days have experienced as they tried to speak up about powerful men in Hollywood.We look forward to your thoughts on the language of the letter. District Attorney’s office and the LAPD tell him that the investigation produced “overwhelming” evidence of Masterson’s guilt, but the case has inexplicably been “slow-rolled,” with the DA’s office still not deciding yet whether to file charges.
