It seems like the tumulus ordeal of senior producer of CNN John Griffin will continue as he has been named in a lawsuit for allegedly “despicable acts of horrific sexual abuse and exploitation.”
John Griffin was fired from CNN last month amidst the child trafficking allegations.
“For several years prior to 2020, the defendant solicited young girls, including the minor plaintiff, for the purpose of knowingly persuading, inducing, enticing and coercing them to engage in sexual activity, sexual exploitation, and/or sexual trafficking,” the lawsuit, filed last week.
John Griffin is facing another trafficking charge along with two other counts of attempted trafficking in a federal court of Vermont for allegedly soliciting parents along with their underage children.
According to the reports, Griffin allegedly called three women along with their underage daughter between the time of April till July 2020, “for the purpose of sexual training.” According to the prosecutors, one of the Nevada women took up his offer as well.
The federal court lawsuit is filed on behalf of “Jane Doe” who is 9-year-old and the custodial “next best friend” Janet Doe and are seeking approximately $15 million for damages.
Different news portals have reported that John Griffin has allegedly paid more than $3000 to a Nevada woman to assist her from flying to Boston along with a stay at his multimillion-dollar vacation home located in Vermont for almost a week where sex crimes were committed involving her young daughter.
The evidence against Griffin is a drone video where he can be seen in his underwear standing next to a “completely naked 9-year-old girl.”
“When confronted with this video during an interview by FBI agents, Griffin’s first response was merely to suggest he was not looking at the naked girl, despite that she was standing so close to him to be touching,” the prosecutor’s pretrial detention memo reads.
The name of the woman is not publicly revealed in order to protect the identity of the child victim.
David Kirby, the attorney representing John Griffin was not available to make any comment on this latest development. According to the reports, if the former senior producer is convicted, he might face life imprisonment. At the moment he has pleaded not guilty but is held in Vermont without bail.
