Lawsuit Alleging Trump Raped 13-Year-Old Child Refiled in NY

HeadlineOct 12, 2016

This comes as a case alleging Donald Trump raped a 13-year-old child more than two decades ago has been refiled in a New York federal court. The victim, identified only as Jane Doe, is being represented by Florida criminal defense lawyer J. Cheney Mason, who rose to prominence after successfully defending Casey Anthony over charges of killing her daughter. The lawsuit alleges: “Trump tied plaintiff to a bed, exposed himself to plaintiff, and then proceeded to forcibly rape plaintiff. … Trump responded to plaintiff’s pleas by violently striking plaintiff in the face with his open hand and screaming that he would do whatever he wanted.” The lawsuit alleges Trump raped her at a party hosted by billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who has been jailed on charges of soliciting sex from a minor. Trump’s lawyer has denied all the allegations, saying they are “not only categorically false, but disgusting.”
