Suffolk DA Ready to Investigate Fairfax Sexual Assault Allegations

February 13, 2019 11:55 AM

Rachel Rollins, district attorney for Suffolk County, Mass., is prepared to launch an investigation into the sexual assault allegation recently brought against Virginia lieutenant governor Justin Fairfax provided his accuser, Vanessa Tyson, is willing to file a complaint, the Boston Globe reported Wednesday.Rollins claims she emailed Tyson's attorneys last week asking if they would like to file a criminal complaint related to their client's allegation that Fairfax sexually assaulted her in a Boston hotel room in 2004, but have not yet received a response.“We will help in any way we can if she chooses to come forward,” Rollins told the Globe in an interview. “We would offer any number of services starting from getting them in touch with counselors all the way, if they were so inclined, to seek prosecution.”Fairfax, who previously admitted to having a consensual sexual encounter with Tyson, once again denied the assault and floated the possibility of filing a criminal complaint against her in a statement provided to CNN Wednesday.“The Lt. Gov. has stated repeatedly that he has never sexually assaulted anyone ever.He has called publicly for a fair, impartial investigation,” the statement reads in part. “He has nothing to hide. He would cooperate fully with an investigation by Suffolk County District if a criminal complaint is filed. In that event the Lt. Gov. will explore all options with regard to filing his own criminal complaint in response to the filing of a false criminal complaint against him.”In a graphic statement released last week by her attorneys, Tyson accused Fairfax of forcing her to perform oral sex on him while the pair were in Boston for the 2004 Democratic National Convention.Fairfax was also accused last week by a second woman who claims he raped her while the pair were undergraduates at Duke University in 2000. He has also denied that claim. Continue Reading


Independence Day is a federal holiday. As a general rule celebrated on July 4, spoken: "the Fourth of July." That's what makes our country marvelous and extraordinarily different from anywhere else in the world. We have freedom! Freedom thousands of Americans in the past had a vision for, the idea of independence they were ready to die for, for us - people they would never live to see. How do we use our freedom? Do we use it at all, or perhaps "independence" slowly became just another word in our vocabulary?


Sustainable plant-based sneakers, plastic wrapper-free frozen treats, living algae lamps and spirulina furniture, eco-friendly vintage jeans, and solar panel-equipped speakers sounds appealing to savvy consumers of 2019, but claiming "green" doesn't always mean sustainability. Companies, from large corporations to small start-ups are aiming for the growing demand in organic products and sustainable lifestyle innovations for the less generous reasons than eco-psychologists and nature's enthusiasts. Even the Coca-Cola company loved by millions and according to experts in Imperial College, London containing chemicals "found in rust remover, steel cleaner, and cement" pumps millions of dollars in plant bottles constructed of 30 percent of the bio-based material to meet market demand. To be honest, there are not as many sustainable products as advertised only some of them have a positive net green others offer an elusive idea of being eco-friendly.


As more and more sales are turning from brick and mortar stores to online, it's safe to say most people that buy gadgets online won't even consider purchasing synthetic grass online, unless it's small rugs for patios, garages, utility rooms, or batting cages. But why not? It seems that you can save much more on synthetic turf online than you can when you shop for a lamp or Chromebook.


Fall injuries, scrapes, and cuts are not a typical picture of having fun. When it comes to our children's safety, we always want to remove challenges as much as we can. Pain is an inevitable part of life, but suffering is optional. You can't control the weather, but you can save a few scraped knees. You can't stop kids from being impulsive, but you can give them a soft place to fall.


San Francisco 49ers have announced a unique, multi-year partnership with Global Syn-Turf, a leading provider of synthetic turf in the United States. The company with headquarters in Bay Area, California is now the official artificial grass partner of the five-time Super Bowl champions.
