A Second Accuser Details Graphic Assault Allegations Against Virginia Lt. Governor Fairfax

Published

on

The attorney for a second accuser of sexual assault in the case of Virginia Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax, has released a statement in full below.

In a letter from her lawyer, Meredith Watson claims she was raped by Fairfax in 2000, when they were both students at Duke University. The letter characterizes the alleged attack as “premeditated and aggressive.”

“The two were friends but never dated or had any romantic relationship,” the letter says.

“Ms. Watson shared her account of the rape with friends in a series of emails and Facebook messages that are now in our possession,” the letter continues. “Additionally, we have statements from former classmates corroborating that Ms. Watson immediately told friends that Mr. Fairfax had raped her.”

The letter adds that Watson was “upset” after another woman, Dr. Vanessa Tyson, came forward with her own accusations of sexual assault against Fairfax earlier this week.

Tyson claims Fairfax sexually assaulted her at the Democratic National Convention in 2004, forcing her to perform oral sex in his hotel room. He has repeatedly denied the allegations.

“The details of Ms. Watson’s attack are similar to those described by Dr. Vanessa Tyson,” her lawyer’s letter reads.
