Wonder why so few women are willing to file charges after sexual assault? It’s almost impossible to get a conviction.
Manhattan DA Cyrus R Vance Jr has accepted “donations” from attorneys defending several wealthy clients accused of sexual assault, fraud, etc. Coincidentally charges were dropped in every case.
According to reports published by ProPublica, WNYC and The New Yorker—Vance received the following:
- $10,000 received from law firm on Trump defense team for a case against Ivanka and Donald Trump Junior accused of misrepresenting of details pertaining to value of real estate sold— charges dropped.
- $182,000 From Law Firm of Harvey Weinstein — declined to prosecute Weinstein for sexual assault.
- $42,000 from lawyers of an un-named high profile sexual assailant— their client received plea deals and avoided prison.
- $25,000 from Mark Kasowitz Attourney for Donald Trump — declined to file charges against Trump Organization over SoHo project.
Additionally, Vance’s former employer Morvillo Abramowitz Grand Iason & Anello PC, has donated more than $26,450 to Vance’s campaigns since 2008.
It appears to be time to clean house In Manhattan.
