    A former aide to Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee alleges she was raped by a Congressional Black Caucus Foundation staffer in October 2015. The staffer says she was fired once the congresswoman learned she planned to sue the Foundation, which Jackson Lee chairs. The aide is suing Jackson Lee in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. A former aide to Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas filed a civil suit against the lawmaker and the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation (CBCF), alleging she was fired for threatening legal action against the Foundation relating to a sexual assault. The...

    A former staffer for Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, has claimed in a lawsuit that she was fired last year in retaliation for legal action the staffer planned to bring against the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation (CBCF) related to an alleged rape in 2015. According to documents filed in federal court in Washington last week, the former staffer -- identified only as "Jane Doe" -- claimed she was raped in October 2015 while she was a CBCF intern by Damien Jones, who was the foundation's internship program coordinator and her supervisor at the time. The lawsuit was first reported by BuzzFeed...

    SYDNEY, N.S. — A 28-year-old Saudi man charged with sexually assaulting a Cape Breton woman has gone missing, with a leading immigration lawyer saying it may be a case of the Middle Eastern kingdom helping a citizen flee while awaiting trial. Nova Scotia's prosecution service says Mohammed Zuraibi Alzoabi had $37,500 of his bail posted by the Saudi Arabian embassy last year in relation to the alleged sexual assault, assault and forcible confinement of the woman between Aug. 1, 2015 and March 26, 2017. Alzoabi is also facing separate charges of dangerous driving and assault with a car in a...

    A Pennsylvania wedding DJ admitted Tuesday to raping and strangling to death an elementary school teacher whose 26-year cold case was solved with help from DNA submitted to a genealogy database by his half-sister.

Rowe went by the stage name DJ Freez and claimed on his now-defunct website he worked as a DJ for celebrities such as Paris Hilton and Brooke Hogan, as well as at events featuring Sting, The Eagles and Kenny Kravitz. He was sentenced to life in prison without...

    As the number of Central American women and girls crossing into the U.S. continues to spike, so is the staggering amount of sexual violence waged against these migrants who are in search of a better life. According to a stunning Fusion investigation, 80 percent of women and girls crossing into the U.S. by way of Mexico are raped during their journey. That’s up from a previous estimate of 60 percent, according to an Amnesty International report. This year alone, immigration authorities expect more than 70,000 unaccompanied minors to come through the United States unlawfully, the majority of whom are from...

    A woman who has been comatose for at least a decade gave birth in a Phoenix nursing facility Dec. 29, sparking a police investigation into possible sexual abuse. Her caretakers had no idea the woman was pregnant “until she was pretty much giving birth,” a source familiar with the situation told CBS 5. “From what I’ve been told she was moaning. And they didn’t know what was wrong with her,” the source told CBS 5. The baby boy is healthy, but the mother remains in a vegetative state caused by a near-drowning incident years ago. The patient had around the...

    Till Tuesday I thought it was Donald Trump who had the most bungled transition in history. It turns out it was Phil Murphy. We learned that at a legislative hearing Tuesday into the allegations of rape leveled against one of his ex-staffers by one of his current staffers. The current staffer is Katie Brennan of the Housing and Mortgage Finance Authority. In October, the Wall Street Journal published her allegations that she had been raped during the 2017 gubernatorial campaign by Al Alvarez, who was at the time the campaign’s Hispanic/Latino outreach director. That article prompted Alvarez to resign his...

    Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos stirred up a hornets’ nest when she recently proposed a substantial revision of the rules for Title IX cases. Under the rules imposed during the Obama administration, colleges and universities were expected to follow procedures that stacked the deck against students accused of sexual assault or harassment. Those rules were heavily criticized by conservatives and liberals alike. Notably, many members of the faculty of Harvard Law School signed a letter attacking the Obama rules for their blatant unfairness. Among the changes proposed by Secretary DeVos is to allow cross-examination of hostile witnesses by counsel for...

    A Texas judge on Monday accepted a controversial plea deal sparing a former Baylor University fraternity president accused of rape any jail time, prompting outrage from the victim and her parents. Judge Ralph Strother signed off on the plea agreement for 24-year-old Jacob Walter Anderson, who was indicted on sexual assault charges and pleaded no contest to a lesser charge of unlawful restraint. A no contest plea means a defendant does not admit guilt, but will offer no defense.

    Actress Lena Dunham threw a man cleared of a rape allegation under the bus in a public apology that is equal parts sycophancy and narcissism. In August, a man named Murray Miller was cleared by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office after he had been accused of raping actress Aurora Perrineau in 2012 when she was just 17. The prosecutor not only declined to charge Miller based on the statute of limitations, they added that “based on the evidence presented, which included Victim, Suspect and witness statements, there are inconsistencies which cannot be overcome. For those reasons, the People would...

Sergio Jose Martinez, 31, was sentenced to 35 years in prison in a Portland courtroom after pleading to first-degree burglary, sodomy, sex abuse, kidnapping, robbery, and second-degree assault.

    A Bangladeshi refugee, who raped a 16-year-old high-school girl in France, has been acquitted by the court due to “different cultural norms,” according to reports. The refugee, who attended the same school as his victim in the French city of Saint-Lô, was also charged with sexually assaulting another young girl in 2015. The attorney contended that the defendant possessed “different cultural norms,” which led to a "misunderstanding" of how the girl dressed, her behavior and looks.

    Los Angeles, CA — A disturbing case of police rape has surfaced out of the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department this week as a detective assigned to handle victims of child molestation cases was arrested for allegedly raping a 14-year-old girl.

Detective Neil Kimball, 45, was assigned to the Special Victims Bureau, a unit tasked with investigation cases of sex crimes against children. Kimball was arrested on Friday on suspicion of rape by force and “preventing or dissuading a witness or...
