CNN employee who worked with Chris Cuomo arrested for "sickening" rape of child
CNN employee, John Griffin, who worked with former network’s star ancho Chris Cuomo, has been accused of luring a mother and her young daughter to come to his home to “train” her to be sexually submissive.
Friday, a grand jury in Vermont indicted Griffin for attempting to rape multiple minor girls.
44-year-old Griffin may face 10 years in prison, and life in prison as a maximum sentence, if proven guilty.
“According to the indictment, from April to July of 2020, Griffin utilized the messaging applications Kik and Google Hangouts to communicate with people purporting to be parents of minor daughters, conveying to them, among other ideas, that a ‘woman is a woman regardless of her age,’ and that women should be sexually subservient and inferior to men,” the Department of Justice said in a statement.
The indictment comes just days after CNN host Chris Cuomo was fired from his job after evidence emerged that he sexually assaulted female employees.
“We take the charges against Mr. Griffin incredibly seriously,” CNN said on Friday in a statement. “We only learned of his arrest this afternoon and have suspended him pending investigation.”
